Pam's Fall Meet, 2017 (October 28, 2017)|
|Again, this year, Jim Schlick again hosted "Pam's Fall Meet" at his home in Bloomington, Indiana. It was a rather cold day! Temp. only in the 40's. There was still a nice turnout, we all had a great time visiting and admiring all the cars. I made the 1400 mile round trip in my 85 505 TD wagon. Ran great, no problems at all, got 28 Mpg. on the trip! On my return trip I had 2 of Jim's Peugeot Mopeds in the back of the wagon. Had to leave the 3rd one for another trip, as Jim has given up on them, guess I will have a winter Project now, trying to get them running.||759 Visits|
