Larz Anderson Auto Museum 

Located in Brookline, Mass. this unique museum sponsors several events of interest to us car hobbyists throughout the year.  “Lawn events" and their lecture series are two in which you may be interested.  Various benefit nights and special functions also take place.  Personal memberships are welcomed.  Your editor will try to publish notification of events if he is made aware of them in sufficient time; otherwise you can check out their web site for yourself at  


Did You Know this? - Cruise Control should not be used when the roads are wet!  Water on the road surface can cause the tires to lose contact with the pavement (hydroplaning) and when that happens with the cruise control ON, the car can accelerate to a higher rate of speed making it take off like an airplane.  So, take heed!
