November 2023 - Connecting at The Savoy
It was planned to be a combination day with the November TLCMC ride sweeping around to take in the Connections Car Show at The Savoy Automobile Museum in Cartersville, GA. Unfortunately several things conspired to scupper the ride including Larry’s KTM service being delayed by the need for a special order cam timing tool, but as it turned out the weather on that Saturday morning was not conducive to enjoyable riding anyway. Even driving up in the ’73 Mustang convertible included some interesting moments as the rain on the concrete roads made for some slick and slippery driving conditions.
Arriving at the Savoy we were one of the small group of show cars on site, but as the morning progressed the rain stopped, the sky brightened, and the cool toys came out to be shown and judged.
It was definitely a more subdued attendance than would have been achieved on a better day, but nonetheless it was a good turn out of some very fine, sublime, and unusual vehicles.
Inside the museum the featured themes included monster trucks, Tatra vehicles (from Czechoslovakia), and a Bryan Fuller exhibit that included incredible custom cars and motorcycles.
All in all it was a very enjoyable day and worthy of a return visit as a waypoint on a ride in the future.
