Saturday, August 10, 2019
Eligibility requirements: All vehicles up through 1908 and any 1 or 2 cylinder vehicles up through 1915 are eligible to participate in Saturday run. This includes bikes, motorcycles, steam and electric cars as well. On Pre-tours only, any vehicle up though 1915.
Driving: Drivers must drive in a safe manner at all times. Due to the nature of driving these antique cars, with all of their constraints and peculiarities, extra caution must be taken to assure a safe run for the antique cars and participants as well as modern cars and the public. This includes leaving space for cars to pass, as well as passing safely. Antique cars are to pull well to the right to let cars around and be aware of traffic building up behind them, pulling off if necessary. The Antique Car Run has the support of the public and numerous Police and enforcement agencies all along the route. We do not want to put the run at risk due to dangerous or poor driving habits on our part. Drivers who put the run at risk will be asked to leave and their future registrations will be declined.
