Tour Information

   Join us for the Western Gaslight 1 & 2 Cylinder Tulare Tour, May 14 – 17, 2018. Tour chairs Vic and Linda Groah have organized a fun tour with great routes and great places to visit, all at a very reasonable cost (low frills). Most meals will be on your own, including some no-host lunches at local restaurants. Recommended dress for the tour is western wear/casual.

Vic and Linda's friends have generously opened their private collections to us for this tour. The stops include:

  • the largest collection of antique Chevrolet cars and trucks in the western states.
  • a spectacular collection of antique and vintage race cars and build shop including a 1911 Indianapolis 500 race car, the oldest National, the oldest known Stutz Bearcat, and other magnificent machines. Many of these race cars are still run in vintage races by the internationally licensed owner.
  • and yet another private collection with many Pebble Beach shown classics and other very interesting "sub groups" of makes of cars.


   A garage/shop is also available to us for minor work on our cars if that need arises. Vic and Linda will be looking for night time security for the hotel parking lot, and there is ample parking for trailers at the hotel. Two trouble trucks are lined up for the tour.
