A.A.C.A. and SAH Meeting in Hershey, October 8-10, 2009. Car Corral was Active!

View from a footbridge connecting the Giant Center to a lot where vendors and swap meet folks were hustling for $!
The road around the Giant Center was filled with parked cars for sale.
A 1956 Chrysler, one year before Virgil Exner's styling would make a definite mark on Chrysler Corporation products. It would be then that the conservatism of K. T . Keller would finally be laid to rest.
There was a one of a kind 48 Tucker Convertible for sale. Note the Franklin engine, modified for automobile use.
$42,000 for this Bianchi! Insanity? SOLD!
The owner was asking $25k for this Volvo station wagon. A "Free Tibet" sticker on the back window, probably added to attract a buyer?

Hi folks -- sorry for the few quiet days. I was off to Hershey, PA, where I attended the SAH (Society of Automotive Historians) Board Meeting Thursday night and Awards dinner Friday night. Karl Ludvigsen's book on Ferdinand Porsche to 1933 won the major prize awarded by the SAH, and I will say more about that book in a later post. The weather was uneven to say the least, with a big wind on Wednesday and showers Friday morning. Swap meet activity seemed fairly good, and from what I could gather the car sales in the corral were healthy.
