Group Finalizing Plans for V-8 Tour to 2020 Western National Meet

"Getting the group back together"

Reunion Tour Announced
Mar. 4, 2020
The idea of a Reunion Cross Country Tour has been kicked around for years but the thought really came to the forefront when former tour participants met, reminisced and discussed the prospects at the 2019 Central National Meet in Auburn, Indiana and again at the AACA Fall National Meet in Hershey, PA.  Everyone we talked with was in favor -- so here we go (the east coast folks are at it again).

The trip will be in September and the destination will be Alamosa, Colorado and the 2020 Western National Meet -- September 20-24.


The initial starting point will be Front Royal, Virginia; from there we will travel the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway through Virginia and North Carolina and Tennessee.  Some of our overnights will include Nashville (where we hope to catch a show at "The Grand Ole Opry"), then on to Memphis (Graceland) and Knoxville.  After Arkansas we will cut through Oklahoma and the panhandle of Texas and into Colorado.

On September 20 - 24 we will attend the 2020 Early Ford V-8 Club's Western National Meet in Alamosa, Colorado.
The eastbound return trip may generally follow US 50 back to Virginia.  We welcome your input and suggestions on routes, historic sites, auto related venues and points of interest.  Please e-mail us with your thoughts and ideas.

Don't pack your bags yet!  We just wanted to alert you to the possibility of another V-8 Tour and hope you might be able to join us on the west bound or east bound trips.  At the very least perhaps you could meet us at one of the overnight stops.
As we did for the 2013 trip, we will work out the suggested itinerary and provide you with a list of the overnight and possible hotel arrangements.  Everyone will be responsible for making their own room reservations and travel arrangements.

As in the 2013 trip, we will plan to travel 250 to 300 miles each day.  What you see and where you go will be entirely up to you, as will be your daily start time.
Remember this quotation from William Leasthreat Moon, author of BLUE HIGHWAYS;
"There's nothing that we can do that is more American than getting in a car and striking out across the country.  I think as a nation we can think of few things that draw us more strongly than a piece of roadway heading we know not where.  This is the way we grow up, this is the way we enter our history:  get in a car and find the country."
