    Somehow we messed up the date and now this event is running one week later. We expect some folks plans to change as a result.

    Join Anne and I on August 27, 2017 to see the Wheels of Time custom car show in Macungie, PA.  There will be more than 1000 hot rods and custom cars of every description for us to look at.  You can look at pictures of last year’s show on line.  If you like chrome, big engines and custom cars, this is the show you shouldn’t miss.  It’s truly unbelievable!      

    To get us warmed up for the show I planned a short 45 mile run that will end near Macungie for lunch.  This run travels east from Bethlehem with views from the mountains of Bethlehem, Easton and Philipsburg.  The urban views however, are only a very small part of the run.  We will travel along the Delaware River for several miles before turning into the back country.  Where we will come upon the little cross roads settlement of Durham.  During the Revolutionary war Durham manufactured cannon balls at the Durham furnace.  Boat manufacturing was developed to ship the cannon balls to Philadelphia.  Durham boats were also used by Washington to cross the Delaware River in 1776 to attack the Hessians in Trenton.  We will pass a replica boat in Durham that is visible from the road. 

    This will be a fun day.  I hope that you will join us!

    Join Curt and Anne Springstead in a reprise of a tour of NJ Highlands area in Warren County from a few years back.

    Continuing my penchant for routes that make you look for sights along the road this time we will search for barns decorated with quilt patterns.   

    The Warren County New Jersey Quilt Barn tour is part of a larger nationwide program of barn quilt trails. Many of these barns are very old and have historical or landmark significance in the area.  The hand-painted quilt squares resemble traditional quilt patterns that have been used by generations of quilters.  These block patterns are very popular and are easily recognizable from a distance by their primarily geometric patterns.  

    We will start at the Panera Bread at 1196 U.S. 22, Phillipsburg, NJ. Plan to show up by 9:30 AM for a departure at 10:00AM. The 57 mile journey will take about 2 hours to search some very scenic roadways for about 10 barn quilts spread across the county. The route will also offer a good  exercise for your Miata with many twisty bits and elevation changes.

    Our final destination will be Hot Dog Johnny's in Butzville, NJ. The event will be limited to 20 cars so please be sure to reserve your place soon. For more information or to sign up contact me at

    With the weather gets warmer our desire for ice cream grows.  This year the Del Val Miata Club will be having ice cream nights starting in April and running through September.

    Most nights will offer a dinner option to go with the ice cream.  Some will be sit down dinners while others will be grabbing a burger or hot dog.  The nights of the dinners we will be starting at 6PM with ice cream at 7PM.  The ice cream locations only will start at 7PM.

    Ice cream nights are popular, please Register and include if you are having dinner or just ice cream.  For the dinners if possible we will try to get seating in groups or at least in the same area of the restaurant.  Be prepared with cash as some locations do not allow separate checks or do not take credit cards

    Join Anne and I on a run to Jim Thorpe.  This year the run will feature the colors of fall to enhance this already amazing tour. The run ends at Roadies restaurant on top of Penn’s peak with a 50 mile panoramic view of the Pocono Mountains.  Since Jim Thorpe is such an interesting place to visit I decided not to reserve tables for lunch.  This will give you the opportunity to go directly to Jim Thorpe for lunch at the end of the ride or stay at Roadies for lunch.  The restaurant has a large patio and indoor seating so if you decide to eat at Roadies there will be plenty of seats available to sit as a group.  The prices are reasonable and the portions are large.  Whatever you decide to do you must see the fantastic view. 

    We will be making a big circle around Allentown on scenic rural back roads.  After the rest stop we will be crossing through 6 covered bridges.  This part of the trip will be a mix of very rural back roads through river cut gorges and secondary roads, since there are few roads that go west through the mountains.

    Jim Thorpe is a go to destination.  It has a very rich history and historic 19th century architecture including a jail and opera house.  I am looking forward to riding on the Lehigh Gorge scenic railroad.  

    Join us; I think you’ll love it!

    10AM, Departure at 1030 AM
