Since this is the Straight Eights’ Year of the Orphan, what better event to participate in than an Orphan Car Tour. This is not an official Straight Eights or LCCI outing, but it is still fun, and a few of us participated last year.

The event is sponsored by the local Packard, Studebaker, Hudson and AMC Rambler Clubs, but any orphan is welcome, and from my observations last year, there were a few non-orphans as well. There are no “orphan police.” Be sure to bring a navigator as everyone gets different directions, making this more fun as we pass each other at different points depending on which route you are given.

Every year, they pick a different location, and it is very well organized. This year’s will be in Harford County, Maryland, Saturday, June 7, 2014, 12:00 to 5:00 pm. The registration fee is $8 a car. There is a dinner for $18, but you don’t have to participate in the dinner.

The registration form can be found here.
