Commemorating Fourty-five Years of the Hunnewell Hill Climb

by Paul Saulnier
June 14, 2017

To commemorate the 45 years of the Hunnewell Hill Climb, the American Bugatti Club and the Vintage Sports Car Club of America held a rally, lunch and dinner on Saturday May 20, 2017. Many of the entrants and attendees of the hill climb drove their vintage cars to Holliston to join in the rally.

To commemorate the 45 years of the Hunnewell Hill Climb, the ABC and the VSCCA held a rally, lunch and dinner on Saturday May 20, 2017. Many of the longtime entrants and attendees of the hill climb drove their vintage cars to Holliston to join in the rally.

Tom Clifford of Holliston organized the event. Tom is Bugatti enthusiast and editor of the ABC newsletter and a former participent in the Hunnewell Hill Climb in Wellesley. The rally is no longer but memories persist. Those who ran the climb, which serves as a private driveway the other 364 days of the day, welcomed the chance to get together to view the cars and share memories.

The rally started with a drive under the narrow railroad bridge on Arch Street:


                ( Howard and Madlyn Fafard’s T57 Stelvio Bugatti followed by 1958 Lancia B24S and the 1926 Bentley 3L )


( Sebastien and Benedicte Benoit-Latour in a 1929 T37A Grand Prix Bugatti followed by the 1936 Type 57 Ventoux Coupe)


 ( John and Cly Foster of Holliston in a 1963 Jaguar XKE followed by the 1957 Porsche 356 A  )


                                     ( Yours Truly with son Phil in a 1986 Ferrari 328 GTS )

The run proceeded through the country roads of Sherborn and Dover and back through Holliston to Ashland and eventually Framingham and Wayland. The video above includes portions of the tour through Sherborn and Dover.

I used to help out at the Crane Estate in Ipswich when they had a vintage sports car hill climb there. Seeing these old cars (and hearing them) as they climb the hill and go around the curves makes for a great day.
