PHOTOS OF THE WEEK—CENTRAL PA BRITISH CAR FESTIVAL RECEPTION AT LENNY'S CLASSIC CAR COLLECTION MUSEUM

 

Last Friday evening, I traveled about 45 minutes from TRF to Altoona, PA to attend the opening reception for the Central PA British Car Festival, hosted by the Central Pennsylvania British Car Club. The event included an opening reception, a Funkhana, Wine Tasting, and a scenic road tour on Saturday with dinner. On Sunday, there was a non-judged car show and passes to DelGrosso amusement park in Tipton, PA. Lenny Fiore, of Lenny’s Classic Car Collection, opened his private car museum for the opening reception. It was the first time I had ever had a chance to go and the museum was amazing! There is an authentic English pub inside the museum with “views” out the “windows”. The cars, the building, the murals on the walls, the repair/restoration shop, and the people I met there were incredible. I have included several photos as our first Photos of the Week, and in addition, I have added some links on the Photo of the Week page to some YouTube videos of Lenny giving a tour of the building and cars. If you watch the second video, you will see what I mean about the “views outside the windows”!
