2012 Tour en route to the Reception

The 2013 Tour

The Nutmeg Tour for Autism benefiting the Drive to Treat Autism Fund in cooperation with our charity partner, St. Vincent's Behavioral Health Services will be held Sunday September 22, 2013.  The tour will follow a route designed by Rich & Jean Taylor of Vintage Rallies.

You don't need a classic vehicle to participate - just an interest in a fun tour of southern Fairfield County. 

There will be interesting intermediate stops at The Alden Sherman Classic Car Show in Weston and Danbury Porsche/Audi/VW, then the tour will regroup at Dragone's in Westport for a Westport Police motorcycle escort through downtown Westport to the Toast the Tour Reception at Veterans' Green.

If you cannot make the tour, please consider registering for our Classic Car Reception & Lawn Party Sunday afternoon.  All proceeds go to support our charity.  We will have a fundraiser raffle and auction.  Click here to see some of the items on offer.
