Hardly seems a month has passed since arriving at the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge. Everyone is now back to “normal”, and in the final stages of catching up. Going through the hundreds of photos taken as we crossed the US brings back a lot of special memories. The following are just a few of those captured moments.
We also want to add our sincere thanks to all the wonderful people along the way who have helped make the 110th Anniversary Celebration of the 1908 NY to Paris Race possible! Their time and effort is preserving an important part of early American Automotive History for future generations!
