The old Bennington meet was an ANTIQUE CAR MEET!!! This looked like a used car lot with a couple of exceptions.

Hey Ted,

Sorry to hear about that, I know I hate it when something like that is in my backyard and I found out after the fact.  I know it was advertised in the Hemming's Publications, and I knew it existed from reading articles over the years. This was the 13th one that they held. I was invited by someone from Hemming's in February, how they got in touch with me I have no idea, but one of my cars was in one of the marque class's they were honoring. I lived in NY State for my entire life and had never been north of the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. Growing up in The Bronx, Yonkers was considered upstate. Hopefully you get to check it out next year

More photos later today

I think everybody always enjoys show pictures and given the limitations configured for the forum picture posts I know I appreciate your effort to do it.

 

The issue that I have always had with the "Hemmings Concours" is that they misnaming something that is a pretty good show.

Oh, do I have great memories of the Bennington show at the Airport! What a great swap meet and show with really old cars , should have taken more photos. Highlights from years ago a 30HP Stanley rear axle for $200.00, 1932 Ford chassis for $125.00 DO Hal cam shafts and RAJO offset spindles come to mind quickly. Bob

Kudos to the entire staff of Hemmings Motor news for the fantastic job that they did in organizing and

conducting this show. The wide variety of cars made sure that there were interesting cars for all spectators.

This is the first year that I have gone, but I doubt that It will be the last.

I came with several others from the AACA museum in Hershey.  We brought the 1928 Sprint car and the Datsun 280Z

from our collection. Sorry, I did not get any photos.  I was too busy looking at the beautiful cars and visiting with other

participants and spectators.

Great show.

John thank you for posting the photos! Most appreciated, perhaps the "3makes" person will attend next year and take some photos of the cars he likes or wants to see posted here and be slightly less critical of people like you who make the effort and take the time to do so.

There are people ( me for sure) that are unable to attend these events and thoroughly enjoy the pictures posted here by those who attend and take the time and effort to share.  To you I say a thousand thank you and appreciate your efforts.

For those of you that don't have any knowledge of the Bennington meet, I believe it was originated in the mid 1970's and initially took place on the grounds of the Bennington airport. From there it moved to the grounds of Bennington College and then to the hill behind the Bijur factory and I believe it ended its run on the grounds of the Pownal Horse/Dog Race track. The event was sponsored by the Bennington Chamber of Commerce. It was one of the finest meets in the northeast and remains so for those of us that attended.

 

It was not unusual to see rows of brass era cars, Model "T"s of all types, Model "A"s and Pre WWII cars of all makes, foreign and domestic as well as some later cars present on the fields, not to mention the flea market vendors that at one point exceeded 200 and maybe more. The participants came from all over New England, New York, New Jersey, Canada and maybe further. Venders camped in the various fields, there was not an accommodation to be had for miles around and most of the display vehicles were driven to the meet.  I participated in at least 20 of the meets as a vendor, beginning at the airport and displaying a car, coming from Connecticut.

 

Last fall I had the opportunity to be in Bennington and stopped at the Hemmings Filling Station, Tourist Store and Museum and inquired about the possibility of their re-establishing the meet and was told I could come to their Cruise Nights or their Concourse event in Saratoga, and when I explained the era of cars I had, I was told NO body was interested in those old cars. This remark was seconded by a couple of the stores customers.
