Saturday, September 19th at the Manassas Museum
The Car of the Month for July, 2015, is coming home for a visit after an absence of nearly 40 years. Thanks to the generosity of its current owners, David and Lorie Greenberg, the classic car will be displayed at the 40th Anniversary Rohr Car Show on September 19. Bill Rothermel’s article, which follows, tells the story of this grand automobile, its history, and its connection to the Manassas community and the Bull Run Region. – Steve White

The Speaker at the August meeting will be AACA member, Charlie Carroccio, who will talk about the History of the automobile and specifically Alice Ramsey’s 1909 journey in a Maxwell automobile becoming the first woman to drive across the continental United States. This event was six years after Dr. Horatio Nelson Jackson, Jr. had driven from San Francisco to New York in a Winton. While on her 59 day excursion traversing primarily dirt roads and wagon trails, Alice was accompanied by her two sisters-in-law and a young girl friend. The women did many of the repairs themselves, showing that women could handle the responsibilities of driving automobiles as well as any man.
Mr. Carroccio is active in the AACA, in running the annual Rockville antique car show, and in organizing the new Bethesda Chapter of the Sugarloaf Mountain Region of the AACA.
