Horseless carriages lead the way for Bugsby on the tour.

The Bay Area Horseless Carriage Club, of which Lynn is a member, is planning a tour followed by a show in front of the Blackhawk Museum. Lynn's asked for, and received, permission to participate with Bugsby.

Lynn and Jeanne drive Bugsby the 26+ miles from Livermore to Walnut Creek to the starting point of the tour. The morning is quite cool (about 40°F) and there is a very heavy fog. Lynn and Jeanne are cold riding in Bugsby, in spite of having donned jackets, hats, gloves and scarves.

The arrive at 9 am at the congregation point in the fog to find hot coffee, donuts and a cheerful, if somewhat cold, collection of antique car enthusiasts. The tour proceeds via back roads to the automotive museum in Blackhawk.

After some time explaining the nuances of antique car to spectators, and taking a tour of the museum, the tour continues to Livermore for lunch.

Lynn is pleased to report that Bugsby did not overheat. But the day was considerably cooler than on the Napa Tour when Bugsby so badly overheated. It remains to be seen if the cooling problems have been vanquished.
