This was the last show of the year for PVCM,
and for once(!), the weather was PERFECT!

Saturday, Oct. 2

Leaving home...

VERY shiny trailer!

Very gloomy through NH, turning to rain in VT.
Not much color to the foliage yet!

Arrival @ PVCM...

... just in time for a great dinner at the attached 

After dinner, Museum Manager Roberto led me to the beautiful Ascutney Mountain Resort where they had booked a room for me.

Sunday, Oct. 3

An absolutely beautiful morning at the Ascutney, 

and a beautiful drive back to the Museum.

After washing off the grime from yesterday's rainy trip at the car wash across
the street, I set up my display in the show area out back, and parked the
Vette out front by the entrance. This was a mixed show, but the
Eastern Mass Corvette Club provided the bulk of the cars.

Despite the small turnout, we collected
$163.00
for the American Cancer Society!

One of those fun "small world" incidents: This beautiful '64 came in around noon. When I went over to check it out, the lady looked at me kind of funny and hesitantly asked "Ben?" Looking at her more closely, I said "Boy, I know you from somewhere, don't I!" She was the kid sister of one of my best car nut/ drinkin' buddies from the 60s! I hadn't seen any of them since shortly after I got married in '67. Kim and her husband Gerry had lived in the Stowe VT area for 20-some years, and this was their first visit to the Museum. They had owned the '64 for a couple of years, and were aware of our Corvettes Conquer Cancer activities through the internet.

The final stats after a very pleasant drive back to Maine.
