A Look Back at the 1995 Coast-to-Coast Rediscover CARavan: June 9th – July 1st, 1995



We started in Newport, Rhode Island on June 9th. The same old exciement comes over me at the beginning of each CARavan as I watch the hotel's parking lot fill with old friends greeting each other amidst their beautiful Classics. And this time so much more would be asked of these cars – 4500 miles over the next three weeks. Several of us had come early to enjoy Newpor's opulent mansions, and some found some interesting antique shops.

This tour was routed over the 'Blue Roads' of America, and we mostly traveled in two's or three's each day, stopping at whatever interested each of us along the route – a new CARavan concept for shure! Classics would leave us and new ones join us at nearly every stop along the way. CARavan treasurer Marcia ("Where's your Ticket?") Herrold did a yeoman job keeping everything in order. There were usually 70-75 hardy Classics in attendance on any given day.

This tour was labeled the Rediscover America CARavan. I don't think any of us will ever think of the United States in the same way again.
