2019 BASH Itinerary:  Day of BASH, May 18

This is usually a one day event, but if you’re in town on Friday evening, we’ll be having Dutch treat dinner at

The Roadhouse Cafe

This NOT a part of the Texas Roadhouse chain but cool car themed. We’re pretty sure you’ll like it!
It’s about 13 miles south of the BASH site.

Activities: Saturday, May 18

(all times approximate)
Morning:  Arrive, drink coffee, etc
Display our Beams for oohs & ahhs, questions & answers

This year we will be getting some grease under our fingernails with a full slate of tech sessions:
  • Diagnosis and repair of a 1592 iron head engine with extremely low oil pressure
  • A redux of Tiger Tom’s turn signal adjustment, with a demo bringing a maladjusted stalk back to life
  • A horn / horn circuit tune-up
  • (Tentatively) a powder coating demo

Noon: luncheon buffet
Joe Parlanti will be grilling chicken as you watch.
And there will be plenty of other food!
1:30 pm: Fourth annual Blue Mountain Run: A gimmick rally (with prizes!)

Staying over Saturday night after the BASH?

This is Carlisle Import and Performance Car weekend. (Yep, that’s a new name!) And the site is close by.

We stayed last year at the Lodge at Lykens Valley , ok, but 27 miles away.

We’ve been staying in the “Grantville” area… sort of carried over from when TT had the BASH there, and a pretty easy ride.
Many places on the west side of Harrisburg are also pretty close, but some are kinda $$ steep. Hershey area is also not far.

For anyone who has not visited, the AACA Museum is phenomenal.
