2021 GT350 Tour - The Keystone State Tour

 

Most of the GT350s arrived on Sunday afternoon for the week long driving event starting Monday morning.

The fifth GT350 Tour was recently held with our "home base" being The Hershey Resort in Hershey, PA. The Tour began in 2015 with just 13 early GT350s (14 total, counting the new, at the time, GT350 attending as a press car). There was no Tour in 2016, but with a new organizer, it was back in 2016 and has been an annual event since.

It's basically an annual "get-together" of incredible friends who just love these cars. It's evolved and grown over the years with the 2021 Tour hosting a whooping 30 GT350s! All of them being '65 and '66 models except for a lone '67 and '68.

We have been fortunate enough to attend every Tour, and this year's event was close enough to drive the old Green '66 (6S1732) through the back roads from Virginia to Hershey, PA. Our reliable '66 did not miss a beat as we drove 933 miles during the entire week. The mileage was a bit on the lower side this year just due to the huge number of cool visits that we made during the Tour. Those stops included the Yuengling Brewery, several private car collections, a scenic railway ride, and Clair Global.

Be sure to check out the pictures posted along with the captions for a bit more information. The planning is well under way for the 2022 GT350 Tour!

There are sometimes a few "issues" to take care of before and during the Tour.

There just happened to be a new Mach-E tagging along.

Just one of the several 4 speed Hertz GT350Hs in attendance. Amazing to have so many as there were only a total of 85 produced. This one was obviously prepped and ready to go!

If you are not familiar with Clair Global, look it up online. We were very fortunate to get a great tour of the campus.

It is always close enough to Halloween for a GT350 Tour costume event. We will just share this one costume picture though.
