I am registration #67, and the run to this New England Meet will be the baptism of my recently completed Victoria. The distance from my Long Island home to the meet hotel I estimate to be about 260 miles if I drive around the island through New York City, and 90 miles less if I use the Port Jeff to Bridgeport Ferry.

I90 (Mass Pike) to route I290 through Worcester to I495 north. Route 119 east exit off of 495 to route 110 east.

I'd be staying on secondary roads myself. YMMV

Hope to see you there.

I'm new to Model A only shows... Is this a touring event only or is there a flea market of sorts?

Good to hear that the "Minute Man" club is still in existence and active. As remembered from long ago, that group was a small and well run outfit. They had lots of fun meets such as camping trips and other stuff. Have fun in Westford and just make sure not to take a wrong turn and end up across the line in Lowell.

If you look on our website and view the registration form you'll get an idea of what the meet is all about. It is not a "car show" or "flea market" but it is a weekend event that does include a tour on Saturday morning terminating with peer judging at the lunch destination. There are dinners and entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights and a breakfast on Sunday morning.

You really have to register in advance although we always get a few that register at the show. No dinner guarantees to those who do that.

If you want to drop in and see what it's all about that's OK I suppose and you'll get to see many, many Model As in the parking lots and meet some great people I'm sure.
