Jim Schlick once again hosted what will be the final fall car and motorcycle meet/cruise-in. After 20 or so years of hosting this event, he has decided that it is time to retire. We can't remember exactly when we started, but the first fall car meet was just a handful of Peugeot enthusiasts camped out in Pam and Jim's family room when they lived in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. The fall car meet quickly grew and included many mostly French and other European car enthusiasts. After returning to Bloomington, Indiana, in 2006 they expanded the scope to include all classic automobiles and added motorcycles to the mix. It was renamed Pam's Fall Car and Motorcycle Meet/Cruise-in in her memory after Pam's passing in December 2007. I have attended every one of the fall meets since the beginning!
This year's fall meet/cruise-in enjoyed beautiful weather at Jim's home in Bloomington, Indiana, USA. We hope that you enjoy the photos! Please feel free to add comments. This Year I decided to drive my 1972 Volvo 1800ES, this was the first long road trip in the car. Made the 1400 mile round trip From Richmond, Virginia, with no problems at all. Just a great ride on a Beautiful weekend and a great Gettogether at Jim's place.
