June 24-26 Inland Maine Tour - Bob & Liz Bailey/Bill & Margi Jones - Augusta ME
The season's first weekender was in the not-so-bustling capitol city of Maine - Augusta
Combined Tour Hosts Bob Bailey & Bill Jones did a splendid job. Our webmaster was there and has this review:
3 glorious days of light traffic, light hills, spectacular views and pleasent company. One highlight of the tour's many stops
was a visit and tour of Cumston Hall. This is a building built in 1895 initially as a meeting hall for the town but doubled
as a first class opera house. Lovingly restored and in regular use today.
Two of my personal hot button food weaknesses are Moxie and Ginger Ice Cream. Both were in abundance on this tour
and I was able to lay in a summer's supply of Diet Moxie. How cool is that!
Who or what is an Autoneer?
The first use of the term is found in the "Overland Monthly" from 1902.
It is a contraction of the words "automobile" and "pioneer" and was used to describe those indefatigable folks
who first took to the paths and byways of America in their new form of transportation.
Today, this anachronistic term is revived by an enthusiastic band of New Englanders who pay homage to those who
have gone before. The group that calls itself the Autoneers is a collection of car folks who enjoy driving their brass
cars and showing the world what automotive transport was like in the early days.
The Autoneers was first organized in 1980 and held our first tour in September of that year.
In 1990 we joined forces with the Horseless Carriage Club of America
by becoming their New England Regional group. We conduct at least 6 events (tours) each year and also host other
events for the HCCA. Our outings range from 1 day tours, weekend happenings and even week long events.
Our tours are limited to non-modified vehicles built in 1914 or before, and other vehicles through 1916
that retain the hallmark characteristics of the brass era such as Ford cars.
These tours offer a wonderful way to enjoy the back roads and country lanes of New England and share their love
of these antiquated vehicles with all the folks we encounter.
HCCA membership is required of all Autoneer touring members. Prospective members and guests are encouraged to attend.
