Those who live in the metro-west area of Greater Boston, or who may have participated in one of the Club’s Spring or Fall rallies are probably familiar with some of the great back roads in the area. What you may not know is the fact that nestled deep in the woods in the middle of the small town of Stow lies one of the most impressive collection of vintage aircraft and automobiles in the country.

On Saturday, August 22 the Northeast Region is pleased to invite you to join us for a tour of the Collings Foundation’s aviation and automobile collection. The tour will begin at 11:00 AM, so plan to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before that so the group can be assembled by the start time.

The Stow facility includes an aviation museum and a vintage automobile collection, which includes over sixty-six American-built automobiles and vehicles from the first half of the century. Included in the collection are midget, sprint and “Indy” race cars (including a 1979 Porsche “Indy” a factory race car that smashed all the track records before being banned), Frank Duesenberg’s personal Duesenberg, along with a Cadillac owned by Al Capone. Their website currently lists a 1993 Porsche RS America – Rolex 24 and Sebring 24 hour veteran. The aviation museum is home to a number of the Foundation’s smaller aircraft, including an original Bleriot XI (1909), 1911 Wright “Vin Fiz” (replica), PT-17 Stearman (1942), AT-6 Texan (1945), UC-78 Bobcat (1943), TBM Avenger (1945), FM-2 Wildcat, Fieseler FI-156 Storch (1943), and a T-33 Shooting Star (1948).

If weather conditions are OK there is a good chance that plane rides in the Stearman will be available for an additional fee.

Our tour group will be capped at 80 people. The cost will be $10 per person with the proceeds going to the Collings Foundation. Registration will open on June 1st at

The address of the Museum is 137 Barton Rd. in Stow .
