Horseless Carriage Club of America

Hosted at the New England Museum of Wireless and Steam

East Greenwich, RI

27 June 2007


Last Wednesday my friend Dave Bono and I attended a workshop for educators interested in manufacturing.  That was followed by a visit to the Haas Machine Tool showroom in Windsor CT.

During the day Dave asked me if I was interested in going to the Horseless Carriage show in Greenwich RI on the following Wednesday.  I said sure, why not.

Last night Dave called me to say that he had to go to a funeral on the day of the show, which I had completely forgotten about.  So Dave who started this thing didn't go and I, who had forgotten about it, did.  I think it was a plot on Dave's part to get me to go out and take pictures of old cars on what was the hottest and most humid day of early summer.

Here are some photos of the show.
