  1. Yesterday's yard sale fundraising event was a success. In a three hour period, we managed to raise $10,000! Thank you to everyone who came out and helped make this happen, including our wonderful team of volunteers. Their hard work and dedication help make this event possible. While this year's yard sale is over, we still have plenty of books for sale at the library. If you are looking for a good deal, you might want to head over to the antique mall, Black Swan Antiquities in nearby Palmyra. Black Swan has over 60 vendors, including the AACA Library. This week, all items in the AACA Library booth are on sale. From now through Saturday, Black Swan will have extended hours and will remain open from 10 AM through 7 PM.

  2. @charlier, sorry to hear you won't be able to make it this year. Feel free to send us your "most wanted" list. When things start to wind down after Hershey week, I can have a look through our leftovers. (Unlike Thanksgiving leftovers, these leftovers are good year-round!)

    @AJFord54 , @46 woodie is correct. The AACA Library Yard sale will be held on Tuesday, October 9th and run from 4 to 7 PM. If you have been here before, you probably already know the drill. If you haven't and have any questions about it please send me a message or call the library. It'll be held at the same place as in previous years - at the AACA Library (501 West Governor Road, Hershey, PA 17033). Hope to see you there! We shared information on the Yard Sale via Antique Automobile magazine, AACA's online newsletter Speedster, our Facebook pages, etc. Word of mouth is also good, so please feel free to share this information with your friends if you'd like. 😉

    Thanks to the AACA Library for Shop Manual!

    @TexRiv_63, thanks for the "shout out." Glad to hear you were happy with your shop manual. We don't always get shop manuals in unused shape, but when we do we are happy to see them go to a good home. If anyone else is interested, we have plenty more shop manuals available through our eBay store! Click here to visit the AACA Library eBay store Have a good one!
  7. @nzcarnerd , it's definitely a liberty and based on the acetylene lamps it is a 2nd series (the 1st series used electric lamps). It looks like there are plenty of variations out there, so I'm not too sure of the date, so I'm putting it at circa 1918, though it could also be a 1919.
  8. Here is some material on the '16 Fairfield for reference.
  9. Thanks, @nzcarnerd . It's definitely a Marmon 34, and after looking at our Marmon book I have to agree. It is not easy to narrow things down on sight alone. Going off of memory, I remember reading that hood louvers were introduced in 1921, so it would be a circa 1916 to 1920. In 1918, the front windshield shape on the touring car was squared off, while the 1917 and prior were rounded. With the top up in the photos, it is very hard to tell which variation is we have here.
  10. @nzcarnerd, I came up with the same thing after seeing your note - A 79T 5-pass. touring car. Thanks!
  11. @keiser31 , good eye! It is indeed a 1926.
  12. @nzcarnerd, great work! You really hit the nail on the head with this one. This particular Broc appears in the Hand Book of Automobiles from 1914 through 1916. They used the same image for their advertising from 1914 through 1916. Here are images from the 1915 and 1916 Hand Book of Automobiles.
  13. Thanks, guys! It's definitely a Dodge Screenside and, after looking through the Crestline book and our literature, I came up with a model year of 1923.
  14. The last one is definitely a '25 Buick, and the 2nd one is definitely a 1936 DeSoto. It appears to be the Airstream Business Coupe.
  15. Thank you, everyone, for all the help with these! I was able to verify a few of these with the time I had. @nzcarnerd, the radiator mascot/hood ornament you are referring to could be an aftermarket thing. In fact, I think it might be a Yosemite National Park souvenir. The reason I think it is is that the emblem also appears to be on the Buick (last image). You can see it on the front of the grille, right atop the license plate.
