Early V-8 Show in Fitchburg: If you have come here to see the photos I took at this show my head is hung in shame. Not until the following day did I realize that I had walked about the show taking photo after photo with NO MEMORY CARD in the camera. For shame, for shame. I sincerely apologize and hope you will forgive me and spend some time on our site anyway. Now I have a reason to return to the show next year. http://clubs.hemmings.com/earlyfordv8newengland/

Directions to Our Meeting Locations
Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation
From I-95 exit 28 onto Rt. 20 east until you get to Moody Street. Turn right and proceed across the Charles River bridge. A block after crossing the Charles turn left at the light onto Pine Street. Go a couple of blocks and turn left onto Cooper Street. Go on Cooper Street (very carefully as the street is in bad condition) into the parking lot. Use the footbridge across the river, turn right at the end of the footbridge to the CRMII entry door.
The address of the Waltham Library is 735 Main St, about 2 blocks west of Moody St. Turning onto Spring St. (to the right of the building) leads to the parking in back. If the lot is full, there is a garage reached by continuing down Spring and making a right on Middle St.
