This morning I ventured to the Ogunquit Beach (Maine) parking lot to watch the beginning of what is called The Great Race. Over one hundred vintage and antique cars lined up side to side to fill the lot. Hundreds of spectator took pictures and/or just looked (including me). At exactly 10:00AM the first entrance in the race began the 2,100 mile trip that will end in Ocala, Florida in seven days. The cars will make their first stop for lunch in Rochester, NH. The race will begin anew and end the first day of racing right here in Lowell. The first car is expected to arrive in the Mill City around 4:45PM. I highly recommend a trip downtown to check out these remarkable vehicles.
