East Coast Reunion



Well, it’s time again to enjoy driving our Lancias, renew our friendships and develop new ones.  We deserve a celebration after enduring the last couple years.

For 2022, Karen and Vince Gallo have organized a real treat in and around their Hometown of Lancaster, one of the  most attractive towns in Pennsylvania.  There will be Scenic and Historic drives, gourmet food and drink plus a private extended visit  to a renowned Railroad Museum as outlined below.

As usual, in order to complete the best planning for these events, we would appreciate your cooperation in identifying the number of attendees as soon as possible. So, If you are definitely planning to join us, please make your hotel reservations and mail your registration as soon as you can.  If you are thinking of attending, but not yet sure, please let me know by phone or email so we can save a temporary place for you.

Look forward to seeing you in October,

Richard Lynn, East Coast VP

American Lancia Club


PS: For members who may like an interesting side trip prior to the start of our Reunion, Hershey PA is less than one hour drive from Lancaster.  There you would find the famous Chocolate factory and, starting from October 4th, the AACA annual event that boasts the largest Flea Market for older cars from everywhere, parts and automobile literature in the USA.  Worth a day but you’ll be tired at the end of it if you cover it all.

2021 Drive your Lancia Day

This years event was not as frequented as the last years event. We have only received three photos and one fun comment from members that unfortunately were out of town but visiting family and got a chance to not drive but hold a Aurelia! Their granddaughter fittingly named as such!

The photos arrived from Lynn and Steve Peterson in their Appia with passengers Kjell and Lo Nelin, Hank Koning in his newly arrived Fulvia Coupe and the Neuman Fulvia at a Cars and Coffee event in the Sierra foothills.
