Fall Meet Slides From Years Gone By

The AACA Library has been scanning & sharing hundreds of slides from Fall Meets of the past.  Earliest folder is 1961 and the most recent will be 1981.  A few year-folders are released each day on our Facebook page and you can view them here:

Two more Albums will become available over the next two days and I will share the links when available.

ID the cars, people and maybe you'll even see someone you know.  Enjoy!!

Please don't rely only on Facebook to promulgate your slides.

I don't belong, and never will--and Facebook puts up a big

banner at the bottom of the screen that blocks a full third of the

screen.

 

Bob, if you can see everything without the interference, let us know how!

I hope 1968 is in the next album, I might be in one of the pictures! I started collecting the aerial views of the Fall Meet from the first year I attended, 1968. It's amazing to compare the difference from year to year.

Notice the difference from 61 to 67, brass cars gone, lots of big heavy "truck" sized classics....(breathtakingly beautiful)

I wonder how many of those early cars are hidden  and /lost.

Can they still be put on a medium others can see them on.

I do not use face book either, and would like to see them.

We'll eventually share them other places, probably our website, but for now they're being hosted on Facebook.

Aside from the top, that Woods Mobilette hasn't changed ONE BIT since 1961 or 2!  Even the placement of the AACA badge is in the same location!!  (I believe the color shift might be natural light vs. indoor lighting.)

Who was the COACHBUILDER (which I believe is the same) for these two different makes of cars?

I just clicked on the link Steve posted. If posting photos on this Forum was as easy we would be over run with photos of old events...…………………… Maybe I just discovered the reason they don't want to make posting photos easy. Clever how they hid that right in plain sight. Bob

The photos are fabulous and bring back such great memories.  I've seen a lot of cars I recognize including Edgar Rohr's Rohr.

Although 70 was the first year I was able to attend, I heard a lot of stories about it before then from some of the old timers who got me started in this great hobby.  Just wish there were a few more pics of the swap meet back then.  Notice how a lot of people are really dressed up for the occasion. Coats, ties, fancy clothes wherever you look. 

Keep the photos coming-

Terry

I had no idea that the Library had it's own Facebook page. Liked it instantly!

Thank you for the batch of 1969 -1973 Hershey shots, great to see the Dr. Williamson Type 35 Bugatti GP car again along with many other fine cars I remember from my early days of Hershey. When I close my eyes and think about Hershey these were the Golden Years of the event, always were, always will be. Bob

Looking at that Mud sure brings back memories of 1976, the year of the really BAAAAD mud.  There were a few years that came close but none that rival that one.

Terry, Just think if we had the technology we have today there would be hours of video of the WWI Renault tank pulling trucks and motorhomes out of the mud. Bob

with the flood in the Blue field, there was an army half track pulling a big truck with water up to the bed of the semi trailer

Those were the days !! !

 

Every year since 1963 !!

They are all universes unto themselves, we don't know what they are saying, and they don't know if the Forum exists. Maybe they are all Chevy people and it really doesn't  matter. Bob

I discovered this forum from being part of the Facebook group. I was enjoying what I was reading there and decided to investigate the actual website. I saw Forum and signed up within a matter of a few minutes. It's been a part of my daily routine ever since, even though I admittedly have a lot less knowledge to offer than most of the people on here.

Billy, What are the differences between the Forum and Facebook? I'm not a Facebook member and see no reason to be one at my age. Bob
