I thought I would start posting some of the pictures from the Hershey swap meet fields. If you've got pictures, please post them below.
What a great show!
Great picture. Thanks Much.
Great pictures, but please post info on vehicles that are for sale. Thank you from those of us that couldn't make it!
Neatest thing there was the Woods Mobilette...
I would like to have that key board
Here are some shots from yesterday. It's getting late and I'll get to today's later.
I didn't see Dean Yoder, but I saw his car.
Here's why Dean bought some new tires.
Cadillac, EMF, Ford
1930 Ford, 1915 Ford, 1925 Star
Photo Stitch: two shots combined
Everybody knows that all Model T's were black. For those who doubt it, we have this 1909 touring as evidence.
You can spot John Regan's hat from way down the road.
Lots of different names on very similar jacks, almost as if they were all made by the same company.
That's it for now. More later.
Thank all of you for sharing!
Thank you, some beautiful machinery there
How's pricing compared to Chickasha?
I would say the price range is similar, from very cheap to very expensive, but there's less of the cheap stuff here.
I didn't take as many pictures on Thursday, but here's what I got.
It doesn't look much like Jack Haley, but it's pretty elaborate.
1917 Haynes: "America's First Car".
Early T parade
The big 1909 Pierce, with its shiny copper hood, was out for a cruise as I was leaving.
I had wondered what became of Doug Susat's red T C-cab delivery after he passed away. He and I are from the same little town in western NY. My father had done some of the paint work on this and his touring car in the late 60's / early 70's.
Dan and Steve, thanks for the pictures!!!
The Chicken Truck got a lot of attention all week. Asking price was $25k.
Berg's radiators standing at attention.
This body had a sign asking for help to identify it earlier in the week. I came back later to see a "SOLD" sign.
It is for a 1908 Northern.
It is so nice to see these. Thanks for taking the time to share them.
1912 Oakland Touring
I believe the '55 Ford F 100 shown in the photo above, with the chicken advertising figure, was originally built to advertise Chicken Dinner Candy Bars.
Apparently, the company had a fleet of them built and had used autos and trucks outfitted like this since the '20s.
I found a photo on the net of what appears to be of the truck pictured above in its original "Chicken Dinner Candy Bar" livery. I'm going to attempt to post it. My apologies if it doesn't work.
I saw a Steamer for $360,000. Almost Died haha.
But then this was in the back under a tent...WOW
Mike - You are right.
Yes! Thank you all for taking the time to share the Hershey experience. So many wonderful cars I would like to see up close? But the photos are great regardless!
Again, Thank You!
The ultimate sleeper car!
1956 Ford Country Squire. Listed at $46.5k and was sold.
The pics are great! Many thanks for posting!
I spent the day just wandering around as Universal were sold out of 30 x3 1/2 tires....
I donít think this one has been shown.
This was on Don Langís space, nice old stuff and prices to match.
I put some detail pictures of the 1910 on a different thread. Start for Home tomorrow but Iíll be going thru Iola to pick up some bits at Model T Haven
And the final picture....no Hershey trip would be complete without spotting the "junk mobile". This guy's been at it for a long time and brings a smile to everyone he passes.
The show cars roll on the field tomorrow. Folks line both sides of the entry road since AACA rules state the vehicles must drive on under their own power. It is an awesome thing to watch.
Hope everyone has safe travels home and enjoyed the show. Can't wait until next year!
P.S. Also hope that others can fill in some of the gaps for anything I missed once they get home and get to a computer. It is impossible to see it all but the pictures give you an idea!
I didn't shoot a lot of pictures today, but here are the ones I got.
Optimistic pricing. I didn't see people lined up waiting to buy these.
1912 Stoddard Dayton
Dean must have stayed up late partying last night.
A pair of Fords for sale in the car corral.
Another case of optimistic pricing. It was nice alright, but $250?
Here's that missing shot.
Thanks for posting these pictures Dan B! I hope to get to Hershey eventually but being from Minnesota it is a bit of a drive over there! I was curious on the 2 brass era T's in your first picture the roadster and touring were there any prices on them? Looks like alot of interesting T projects at Hershey this year. I'd like to find a brass era T to restore for a project. Thanks again!
Sure, the prices on these three cars were $15.5k, $12.2k, and $10.5k respectively. The last one was posted over on the classifieds and the price seemed very negotiable.
I didn't post closeups of the signs because they have cell phone numbers on them and wasn't sure if it was a good idea to post them on a public forum or not. If anyone's interested, you can PM me for the phone numbers.
My dad was offered a 57 Ford hardtop convertible for our 1919. I am happy he didn't accept the offer
The " '15" in the second to last photo sold for $9,500. It ran well with no smoke and drove very nicely. Engine c/d was June '16.
Almost twenty years ago, my wife and I spent a weekend in Las Vegas. We never gambled even change. I am proud to say we are among the few that attended Vegas to see the Museums. At that time, the Imperial Palace collection had about twenty Duesenbergs on display in one room! Included was one that had belonged to Buddy Baer, the boxer, who had earlier spent much of his time in Livermore where we lived fifteen to forty years ago. We did not know it when we made our plans, but found out shortly before going, that there was going to be a major collector car auction that weekend. So naturally, we went to see the cars! Mostly, like in most such auctions for me, the cars were too new and of little interest. but there were a fair number of big-buck horseless carriages and fabulous classics, fun to look at. Mixed in among all that, was one lowly little unrestored Richenbacker. It was dirty, a bit rough, but looked like it might just clean up well enough to be a preservation vehicle. Except for the clean and shiny, it looked just like the one pictured above! Same body style, same color. Could it be?
It would be nice to know. I couldn't stay for the actual auction, and never heard if it sold, or for how much. Just one of the hundreds of cars that have crossed my path that I could have maybe had, and would have liked.
The fender less 21ish touring car, was that langs did it sell, what was the asking price, Thanks
George - It was not at Lang's spot and I did not see a price.
The model A that Dan B posted pictures of in this thread, the price was $14,500. On Saturday the price dropped to $12,000. Did everyone see that car , I thought it was an awesome original car for $12,000 and I was surprised it didn't sell, am I wrong? Maybe if it were a convertible the price would have been higher?
I have the contact info on the 15 Touring with the white tires
