  1. Whenever I travel, I love to search out great food - this even applies when I'm attending car shows and swap meets. For instance, at the Carlisle shows I make a point of eating at Stoltzfus PA Dutch Foods (located in the food court on the backside of the grandstands). Their ham and cheese sandwiches are incredible, and the potato salad is so sweet that it could be dessert. They also have great homemade pies and soups that I like to sample. Stoltzfus has become a part of the Carlisle shows for me, and because they're centrally located I don't even have to leave the fairgrounds. At Hershey, howe
  2. . . . Something is missing here. Photos of beautiful cars just don't seem to be complete without some beautiful women. So, here is a period photo that should fill that void. No explanation is needed for this photo, as it pretty much speaks for itself... . . . . .. . . .

"Max" McClellan, New York mayor from 1904 to 1909, was the son of Civil War general George B. McClellan." I enjoy the photo's composition, and when viewed at full size, the photo's clarity really gives it depth.
