I didn't cover everything, concentrating on the T era cars. Something I noticed this year was the notable shortage of black era Model T Fords. I think there were three. One of them was a 1924 identified as a 1923. Anyway, here are the cars I did shoot.


1906 Buick Model G


Except for the new radiator, this 1911 touring belonging to Paul Rose is unrestored.


1914, 1913


1915 Touring


1915 Station Wagon


1923 Detroit Electric


1932 Detroit Electric


"It takes a lot of batteries."


The remarkable thing about Pete Ratledge's 1911 is that he drives it a lot but manages to keep it looking pristine.


The Ratledge tool kit.


1910 and 1910.


Another 1911


1910 Stanley


1909 Touring


I didn't see the serial number on the 1909, but here is the car number.


The other 1910 Stanley.


Gil Fitzhugh drove a Buick this year.


1913 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost


Another view of the Ghost


Rolls engine.

Darn, Steve. I haven't been in many years but am in Connecticut dealing with "family issues" and was able to sneak away for the show. From the looks of the sun in some of your pics, you were probably in that area as I moved to some other makes. I did come back later on. Were you wearing your typical attire? You did a great job getting those shots. Hershey is horrendous for people walking right in front of someone trying to take a 1/125th second shot. I mostly shot video and will edit and post when I get back to the west coast.

It is great to see these terrific pictures. The first one of the Model G Buick and the "old Paint" Stanley were especially fun to see.
Thanks
Rich

I remember some folks used to hunt for the green glass out of the Trailways bus's like that to cut for windows in their street rods.
Did anyone happen to snap a good pic of the little CitiCar beside the red Steamer?
I want 1 of those to play with.

What is up with the fire extinguishers in the beginning group of pictures?

Fire extinguishers for each car are a judging requirement.

They are all cool but 2 Detroit electrics one one place that's awesome.

I am always surprised by how many people bring old cars to a fire extinguisher show.
