AAA Glidden Tour, Brenham, Texas
Article and photos by Dennis Holland
The Glidden Tours are different. They have their own set of traditions, not shared by the other VMCCA tours. They are something special and are the premier touring event each year.
This year the Crandalls made sure that the Brenham, Texas event would be one to remember. It was pure Texas and about as western in theme as it would be possible to make it.
We started with a mini-rodeo, we had cowgirls on horseback greeting us everywhere we went, and the BBQ was not in short supply. Each day was approximately 100-110 miles of touring on great scenic back roads. Destinations ranged from the George Bush Senior Presidential Library to the Blue Bell Creamery.
185 cars were registered with approximately 430 participants. They came from 37 different states. The cars ranged in age from 1909 to 1942.
