Car club cruises Kittanning

| Monday, June 4, 2001

KITTANNING - Father time's treds temporarily peeled into reverse along Market Street yesterday, as members of Tri-State Antique Car Club paraded through the borough in 20 antique cars before heading home to Salem, Ohio, after a weekend tour of western Pennsylvania.

'If you can't get the cars out, and people can't see them, there's no point to having them,' said Dave Reinehr, one of group's 67 members.

'A lot of times people have questions, and we say if you want to look go ahead and look.'

Among the classics were a 1927 Street Rod Model-T truck, 1937 Chrysler and Chevrolet, 1950 Mercury, 1955 Oldsmobile 98, 1957 Ford Thunderbird, 1960 Ford Mustang, 1963 Rambler American, 1965 Ford Galaxy, 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible, 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle and Nova, 1972 Pontiac Lamans, 1973 Chevrolet Caprice and a 1974 Volkswagon Karmann Ghiaa.

The tour, which Reinehr said began on Friday, took the group to Clearfield County and Grice's Car Museum, then on to Punxsutawney, before rearing back for home and traveling through Smicksburg and the borough yesterday.

'We just like to pick a place, and then go,' said Reinehr.

According to Reinehr, the purpose of the club, which was founded in 1957, is to preserve, restore, and use antique motor vehicles, and to bring together and create a fellowship between members and a gathering point for information that will assist members in their hobby.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
