Malaise Era Buick Reatta and a Brass Era Model T
A visit to the Antique Auto Club of America’s annual fall meet in Hershey PA presented this site’s gate keepers with a dilemma. Our focus has long been to highlight cars as they are — uncurated, so to speak — in their natural environment. That means that auctions and car shows are removed from our consideration set.
’60 Olds wears a full body condom
Just the same, we’ve decided it would be OK to offer a look at some of the sights experienced at Hershey. On the day we were there rain fell in torrents and the setting was one of poignancy that compelled us to share the resulting photo essay. Both gleaming show cars and beaters under plastic sheeting or left on their own to endure the elements offer, at the very least, a soupçon of feralosity (feralousness?) There’s a real sadness in this circumstance: works of rolling art and heaps, alike, are vulnerable. Indeed, as are we all. The sun will eventually shine again and melancholy will ultimately turn to joy. That’s certainly our hope. Have a look…
Rainy day sale and it even “runs and drives”
If have to go to the hospital, go Packard style or “ask the man who is prone in one”
Don’t call it “Hank”
If the shoe fits, drive it.
We’ve never seen a dry Kurtis before, let alone a wet one.
So nice, they had to do it twice
Styled by Pininfarina in Turin, built in Kenosha by American Motors
Big ol’ wet kitty from Coventry
Back to the past
Best guess is Mustang or a big hunk of roast beef
Even wet it’s better than the band of the same name
One piece at a time..
Drenched Sport Fury is still freaky and fabulous
“Help! I’m stuck on the hood of an old Cadillac and drowning.”
Like a private railroad car but tracks are not required
Isetta got wetter
You call it rust, we call it patina
Packard didn’t make a pick up but somebody did
Speaking of pick up trucks, there’s not much to talk about here.
Yes, we can all get along
“Needs some work”
Race called on account of rain
“Heckflosse” in chains
Mix ‘n’ match
