1999 New England Tour 1000

1999 New England Tour 1000
Panton, Vermont

Early Summer 1999

The New England Tour 1000 is another Vintage Rallies event. Again, not a public event, though your humble editor milled about looking only slightly out of place and was not asked to leave. The same format as the Forza Mille, but open to any pre-72 sports car and any Mercedes (Mercedes again being a sponsor of this event). The format is the same - eat, drink, and sleep in luxury, and drive the heck out of your old sports car on some of New England's finest backroads.
