Berkshire Power Cruise 2013

Berkshire Power Cruise June 1st, 2013

OK, here are the details. We are planning an event where we can drive our cars and enjoy them without sitting in the hot sun at a car show or parking lot "cruise" all day.

Mopar owners have never been shy about driving their cars and this is the reason for this event.

We plan on meeting in Greenfield, MA and driving west along the scenic Mohawk Trail to North Adams, MA. There we will stop at a diner for lunch before continuing north to Bennington,VT and Hemming's Museum.

If you want to join us We invite anyone with a Mopar to meet us in the Home Depot parking lot, 264 Mohawk TrailGreenfield, MA.around 9:30 AM. We will leave there at 10:00 am along the Scenic Mohawk Trail west to have lunch at Miss Adams Diner, 53 Park Street, Adams, MA. We should get there between 11:00 and 11:30 am.

Once we are fed we will leave the diner between 12:30 and 1:00 pm and head toward Bennington, VT and Hemmings. That should take 45 min to get there where we can visit the museum and get our cars serviced at their full service gas station.
The Museum closes at 3:00 pm, the gas station is open later.

I have spoken to Rick Morse from the Hemmings Museum and has told me that an hour is plenty of time to view all they have on display. He even offered to hold the Museum open later for us if we thought we would arrive later than 2:00 pm.

I'm planning on coming, and I'm bringing a friend of mine... I'm also telling my Mechanic about this, he's quite the Mopar guy...
