The 2017 route is 550 miles of some of the best scenery in central Pennsylvania!

 

We start in Quakertown, PA, with overnight stops in Altoona and Williamsport.  Along the way we will visit a spectacular private car collection, a cars-n-coffee event at the Swigart Automobile Museum, and get a behind-the-scenes tour of the auto restoration program at the Pennsylvania College of Technology.  Our trip ends with an awards banquet back at our starting point in Quakertown.

Hotels

The ABRR committee will reserve blocks of rooms at hotels in our two overnight cities.  The hotel information for the run will be provided to you in the confirmation email when your registration is accepted.  Participants are responsible for making their own hotel arrangements with these hotels.  However, participants are free to make other arrangements if they like.  For participants who need to stay over Thursday night before the Friday start, the two hotels below are adjacent to our starting point. 

Recommended Hotels For Thursday night

  • Hampton Inn, John Fries Highway, Quakertown PA (shares a parking lot with our launch location)
  • Quality Inn, John Fries Highway, Quakertown PA (adjacent to our launch location)

Meals

The ABRR runs with a tight schedule that doesn't allow time to find restaurants, be seated, order, and pay.   Therefore, for 2017 the ABRR includes pre-paid meals for all lunches and dinners.  Our hotels provide breakfast buffets.  Menus for the meals will appear below and all meals will include vegetarian options.  If you have dietary restrictions please contact Alan Anspaugh at alan.anspaugh@gmail.com.
