  1. Well then, Woodie why don't you contact the Hershey Region who organizes and runs their meet? You are repeatedly asking the same old questions to the wrong gallery. This is the AACA Forum not the Hershey Region Forum. The AACA supports this and all meets however the host Region runs the Meets to include any organizing and logistics. I might add do not assume the Hershey Region monitors this AACA Forum for questions related to them. Ted, the guy just wants to beat the topic to death Peter J.

    EASTERN DIVISION NAT'L SPRING MEET JULY 11-14

    papafarm...I would contact the region for some facts. Last time I was at the Gettysburg Meet there was a decent amount of vendors. Also Hershey is large however there are others that have many vendors (The Hornets Nest Region meets at Charlotte come to mind where the vendor area is packed on the infield of the track). Go to the the people running the venue for facts. Hate to see you not come only to find out the vendor area was decent.

    Bump a listing

    I still advise making a post in the Forum Software Questions/Software. Have seen many posts made in the General Forum over the years where well intended people offer all sorts of advise only to totally confuse the OP. Your call Supercargirl.

    New Museum planned for Birdsboro, PA

    Hi, Charlie. Possibly the junk car ordinance however the expansion of the power transmission operation is currently where the cars were parked. I recall some sat there for years and suspected at the time he wanted the usual top dollar until the cars just rotted away. Peter J.

    Remember Fritz very well, Dave. He must have become grumpy in later years. Some guy stopped to wander through the car lot on a Sunday if I recall. Fritz showed up pointing a pistol asking what he was doing? After that his trouble was compounded when electric utility Met-Ed who either owned the land or took it by eminent domain thus putting Fritz out of business. Old cars are very popular in the Birdsboro area. I see the Mascaro Museum as a good fit for the area. Regards, Peter J.

    Hi, Charlie. Nice to hear from you. Agree. That is why I noted that "Not certain" in my original post as I have not heard anything lately myself. The museum would a lot better for Union Township in my opinion. What type of exotic cars they have remains to be seen. Looking at the race track and club house layout on the sign one had better have very deep pockets to belong. Regards, Peter J.

    Hi, Dave. (I think I hit send at the same time as you). You are correct. Just thought I would post the article to give people a heads up that this may be something nice for them to visit when in the area. Add it to all the other auto related venues such as the Boyertown Museum of Historical Vehicles (20 minutes North of Birdsboro), Simeone Museum (Philadelphia), etc.

    Hello, Phil. J. P. Mascaro is a huge trash hauling business in Eastern PA. They are also a huge supporter of various community projects and charitable organizations in the area. Not certain if plans are still in the making however they own around 600 acres in just outside Birdsboro where an auto race track is/was planned (there is an architects drawing on a sign along Route 724 showing the road course). A country club for race and sports car owners to have a blast on a road course track to include a clubhouse similar to a golf country club. Regards, Peter J.

    Saw this very nice 1969 Lincoln Mark III today....

    Thanks for the clarification, John. It was a bit confusing.

    Keiser, the area code on the for sale sign is 760 (southern California). Where did you see it? Looks like an interesting cruiser. With all the photos of details you take sometimes actually inside a workshop, interiors, up close items, etc., I would think sometimes the owner would offer some info. Certainly would add to your photos. Regards, Peter.

    Hi, Jeff. Hope someone comes forward to assist you. (In my 45 years of business travel prior to retiring I found most motels do not require elevators for a 2-floors. Beyond 2 floors they are required by law or building codes.) Peter J.

    Great, Dave. Thank you for responding to George's query. Hope you are enjoying the Florida move. Nothing new here in Mt. Penn. Regards, Peter J.

    John, you forgot to mention your friend had to have bought the car without even a 1/2 - 3 mile test drive at which time he would have noticed the under power issues. Add all these other issues quoted above confirms the guy bought the car with no testing. Also wonder why he would keep the car long enough for all the corrosion issues to come into play? Must be more to the story.

    Hello, George. Our 2018 VP of Publications is Dave Anspach - tmkldwwj@yahoo.com He is a long time collector and resident expert if you will concerning Crosleys. As with most directors they come onto the forum little if at all. Maybe they troll the forum without comment? Contact him per the address above. Peter J.

    Thank you, Philip. The rain and gloom actually makes for nice photos. Brings out a lot of detail without sun glare. Regards, Peter J.

    Southeastern National Spring Meet, April 7

    I agree, Matt. All what you are looking for and simply have a good time has always been my approach. The Fall Hershey meet is different in the sense the Hershey Region of course hosts the "meet" and the Hershey car coral rule of vehicles 25 years old and older is part of the meet sponsorship. The Spring meet in Charlotte of course is hosted by the Hornets Nest Region of the AACA as we know. What I see as different is the Auto Fair and its car coral are possibly separate entities in management. Looks like the Meet is held in "conjunction" with the Auto Fair thus different rules and what is allowed to participate as far as vendor goods and vehicle year in the coral. This is just my assumption. Correction is welcomed. Regards, Peter J.
