Annual Pilgrimage to Hershey AACA Old Cars Show and Flea Market

I went with three friends to Hershey, Pennsylvania, last weekend for the American Antique Car Association Fall meet.  Saturday is the day to see the show cars on display, and there were a ton of nice ones again this year.

Sadly, a lot of the flea market vendors are now packing up and leaving by Saturday, so the shopping for parts and automobilia is a lot less fun.  I did score one cool item though -- this vintage Hot Wheels bedspread!  My one friend usually drives up the night before from Richmond and stays with us, so I promised him the next time he stays he'll get the hot wheels bed.

Here are a few shots of what we saw on the show field and in the Car Corral, where hundreds of collectible cars are offered for sale.  It was a cold morning with frost on a lot of the car corral vehicles.

The show field was full of cars, and big crowds too.

And here's a link to the rest of the album with more than 90 photos.  Enjoy!


  1. Love the Good Humor truck. That would be so quirky and cool to own!

  2. My cousin had a bed spread JUST like that when we were kids!

  3. Oh how fun! Nothing like a good car show to pass a weekend! Keep up the fab work with your blog as always :)

  4. The good humor truck is awesome! I have a truck with the same body as that, but it is in FAR worse condition. I have thought about restoring it, but have no use for such a large vehicle that most likely has horrible gas mileage. I live in NJ and have thought about the new jersey lemon law. It would be great to get off of my hands and into someone's who can do something cool/useful with it.
