Antique vehicle tour visits Vermont

Posted: Updated:

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - About 120 antique cars are in Vermont for the Horseless Carriage Club of America's New England Brass and Gas Tour.

Rutland is hosting this year's biennial event, which runs through Saturday.

Each day, participants take a road trip, stopping at various Vermont destinations.

The Rutland Herald reports that Nancy and Doug McNair traveled from Tahoe City, Calif., to drive their 1909 Chalmers, which is stored at a relative's in New Hampshire.

Nancy McNair says they like the camaraderie and seeing the word at 25 mph instead of 70 or 80 mph.

The group has visited the American Precision Museum in Springfield, King Arthur Flour in Norwich, the Queechee Gorge and Long Trail Brewery.

They also plan to visit Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain.
