Finally we had some great weather here in Connecticut and that means it was time to get the early cars dusted off and on the road for another great and relaxing Fairfield County region of the Horseless Carriage Club event. My great friend Shenton King, the newly appointed president of our region, created a small gathering in Redding, CT at King Farms with our other great friends, Bill, Dick, Marsha and Christopher King where they had a live Jazz band, a wine and cheese tasting and games such as Croquet and bag throwing for everyone to enjoy. We travelled 50 miles each way to the event and back without any trouble where we took a beautiful New England route through the country. I personally drove an all original 1915 Marmon 41 club roadster, 70 horsepower, 6 cylinder that performed absolutely flawlessly followed by our friends Joe Giordano and Ken Huzi in their Model T Fords and, my father Manny Dragone in a 1930 Packard 740 Phaeton, as the meet was open to cars newer than 1915 as well. There were a good 40 cars that showed up with a lot of the 40 and younger crowd showing up including our friends Nick and his dad Manny Rein showing up from New Jersey and Mark Scanel and his family, also from New Jersey. It was a great day and it really felt like a good old Horseless Carriage club event, which is how it should be! 

    The 1915 Marmon has been owned by the same family since new and has recently had an engine service. This event was its first test since the engine work and it ran perfect. Its a fantastic and very powerful car that took the New England hills like they weren’t even there. It would make the greatest tour car anyone could ever ask for and its provenance and documentation is better than any early car we have ever had. It will be on offer publicly for the first time in over 100 years so keep your eyes open for our next post!
