Our job was to stop and handle any breakdowns. The cars were mostly American with a couple of European cars here and there. Starting in Richmond, we headed out and made a large loop visiting many museums and private collections including the Military Aviation Museum, the Virginia Museum of Transportation, the USS Wisconsin to name a few.
The rally was very well run organized and there were just a few problems with the cars and after all that why my buddies and I were there! Most issues were minor repairs that were easily fixed in parking lots or road side, blown fuses and faulty wiring, etc. Several cars had problems that could have been easily avoided by having their cars checked by professionals before the rally. The biggest problem was driving through changes in elevation in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Several cars overheated and that made them unable to finish the trip.
These people were provided a rental car or rode the rest of the trip with friends. We got to know the owners of a Chevrolet Fleetline very well that had over tightened wheel bearings that eventually destroyed the custom spindles.
A Chrysler New Yorker blew all the seals in the transmission and also went home on a trailer. Many cars had bad seals that needed replacement a long time ago and one car overheated so badly he blew his engine.
These issues could have easily been avoided with a preventive mechanical inspection before the rally. This was a great experience, which I would be more than happy to do again and most likely will.
It taught me a great deal about the owners of classic cars that I did not fully understand before the rally.
