Yesterday was my birthday, so the wife and I decided to take a few days touring PA in our '79. This is the first real trip we've taken in the car. Temps were around 90 but we dodged any rain storms.
On Thursday, we drove to the Reading/Adamstown area to peruse thru the antique/flea markets, which we really enjoy. That was a 130 mile trip. The B drove wonderfully. We stayed off the interstates, sticking to back roads and highways.
We had a great dinner in downtown Reading.
On Friday, we drove to Pottsville, PA to tour the Yuenglings factory. The trip home was 130 miles and thankfully we had cloud cover but no rain. We were tired, but thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
We bumped into this gentleman near Pottsville in this '58 TR3. He bought it in 1969 for.... $75. It was pristine. He got a kick out my "Triumph" shirt and that were were driving an MGB.

In all, just about 300 miles were driven in the two days. The only thing that slowed us down was talking to folks who were interested in the car.
Some shots at the Brewery and a winery near by.

Happy birthday Al!
That sounds like a great way to enjoy your three favorite things.

The wife, the car, and of course your pipe.
