Join Anne and me on August 5, 2018 and visit the Das Awkscht Fescht (The August Festival) or perhaps something we can better understand, an antique classic car show. This is a spectacular show featuring a thousand cars of every verity. For example, last year there were over two dozen Corvair’s and even a dozen Nash Metropolitans. Metropolitans are not a personal favorite but an example of the vastness of the cars on display. I found the cars I drove as a teenager and I’m sure you will too.
To warm us of for this event, I plan a 50 mile run starting in Emmaus and ending near Macungie a few miles from the car show. This run doesn’t have a rest stop, so go easy on the morning joe.
This run is not short on good Miata roads or fantastic views. We will go through the Unami Creek Conservation Landscape. This is one of my favorite places with huge black granite boulders spewed about in a dense riparian forest. This route with the exception of the Unami Creek area is mostly new.
Even if you decide not to go to the car show this is a run that you will enjoy.
You can view images of past Macungie car shows on Google.
