I was thinking of doing this drive for a combined Cobra/Austin-Healey event on 10/10 with a rain date of 10/11. This is supposed to be peak foliage and Columbus Day weekend. Any interest? https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/mass...Psg0GkY40FEJc0

That's why I have one of those fancy Healeys with a convertible top and roll-up windows:

Knowing its still British my guess is that you get wet, drafty and takes a little work to set up.

LOL Mine too, it also gets you wet, noisy and windblown with a max speed of 55mph.

When we lived in MA we'd take drive up to Mt. Washington and stay the night at the old hotel there. That's the prime time for that area. Drove up the mountain one year, rode the cog train another.

One time we went to see The Old Man Of The Mountain but that broke off a while ago.

That ad is always good for a laugh in the Healey community. It's a legit ad from the '60s, but even when they offered a convertible top and roll-up windows, none of that so-called weatherproofing was worth a damn. The Fiat 124 Spider i had in college, OTOH, was a whole different story. Top you could raise and lower with one hand, fantastic heater and defroster and a car I could drive all winter in Massachusetts with no problem, unless we talk about the rust.

Summer and fall have to be our highlight seasons. My buddies and I used to do a Columbus day weekend drive to Provincetown after the tourists had left. We had the whole international group of sports cars, Fiat 124 Spider, Porsche 914, MGB, MGA and TR6. Glorious. Can't beat the foliage up north either. Had the Healey up at British Invasion in Stowe and a tour bus full of leaf-peepers from the UK pulled into our hotel. They just loved the Healey. Think I drank for free at the bar that night.

Back in the day I had a new 1966 MGB with the heater and roll up windows. The third year of the B. Actually it was pretty good during cold -20 NH winters and no water leaks. I wanted a Healey but couldn't afford one.

I know, Jeff. Most of our members are retired and they wanted to avoid the holiday weekend leaf-peepers. Our motto used to be "Home Before Dark:" because of Lucas electrics, now it's because we can't drive at night.

Tour moved to Saturday 10/10

Our motto this year should be "Semper Gumby" (Always Flexible). The good chance of rain tomorrow and cold temps on Thursday mean we are moving this ride to Saturday when it is supposed to be warm and sunny. Our tour leader, Bruce Fiske, has advised foliage is great and traffic shouldn't be too bad We will meet at his home at 260 Hardwick Rd, Petersham, MA 01366 at 10:30 am. From there, we'll tour around the Quabbin Reservoir making stops at Quabbin Park: https://www.mass.gov/locations/quabbin-reservoir and the Hardwick Winery for those who wish a bite to eat and a bottle of wine or two: https://www.hardwickwinery.com/ For more details on the tour route, go here: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/mass...Psg0GkY40FEJc0 and for a full map click here

Take advantage of the opportunity to catch some beautiful scenery at the end of the driving season. Thanks for your patience and please let me know in advance if you're planning on coming. Masks and social distancing are required.

PM me if you're coming. Happy now, Jeff?
