Hershey Impressions

Post by oldcarfudd » Tue Oct 14, 2014 7:01 pm

I was at the swap meet Friday, the show Saturday, the full Sunday tour of Hangover III, and about 15 miles of Monday's tour. Then I had a Failure To Proceed, and others will have to report.

Here are a few pics from Friday that others may not have posted.

Helen Turner and Sharon Gooding (wo)manned the HCCA store.

Manny Rein's Buick Model 17 has been everywhere!

Clay Green sold this Buick Model 35.

I think Herb, Jr., has outgrown it. So has Herb III
In past years I have stayed with my son during Hershey week, and the two of us have driven brass cars to the Saturday show. We couldn't do that this year - Gil the Younger has been doing business in Russia for several weeks, and had to miss Hershey - so I stayed some 30 back-road miles from Hershey at the Lantern Lodge, that would become headquarters for the upcoming Hangover.

By now you've probably heard that it rained Saturday morning. Nevertheless, I drove the '12 Buick to the show field - top down! - and parked it in Class 13B with a Do Not Judge sign on the windshield. There were a lot of brass-era cars of note. Here are some of them.

William Tecco's 1910 Model F Buick won a First Junior

Hugo Vermeulen's 1904 French front Oldsmobile won a First Junior.

I believe this Ford belongs to John Biggs.

I believe this 1911 Ford belongs to Peter Ratledge

This used to be Skip Carpenter's Cadillac

Steve and Pamela Heald showed this ex-Skip Carpenter Model C Buick in the Driver Participation Class!

This is Reggie Nash's 1909 Rambler; it's bigger than the Rambler he brought to the Creepy-Crawly!

John McAnlis, "Mr. Snapper", showed this 1914 Oakland
image.jpg
John Nikodym's 1911 Elmore won a Senior.
image.jpg
Hiding from the rain was a 1915 International Harvester belonging to James Barnes - it's an ORIGINAL truck, and I want to see it on a Creepy-Crawly!

The most Creepy-Crawly-worthy droolwagon I've ever seen is this 1912 Little Giant jitney bus belonging to Wayne MacDonald
Folks, this file is getting too long to post, and it's almost 10 pm. I'll tell you about Sunday's Hangover ride tomorrow. Good night!

Thanks for the great pictures! Some great looking cars. Wish Hershey was a little closer to the west coast....
