Although they had some rain Saturday morning, seems like the 50th annual show went off without any major hiccups. Weather today was mostly sunshine, 77* and a slight breeze - perfect car show weather.

A few photos from today - which was club day - of some of the Studebakers present (about a dozen).

The Nash club was right behind us - this little sign was on the back of a '23 that was there.

Thanks for the pics Patrick. It has been years since I had a car at that show. I love Macungie Park. What a great venue for a car show, Das Awkscht Fescht, ATHS Truck Show, Wheels of Time, always enjoyable events.

I went to that show for several years, but not lately. I first went there in about 1971-1972. I drove down in my 1953 Commander Starliner before it was cosmetically finished. The person at the entrance did not want to let me enter. He said something about the condition of the car and it not being that old. After I explained that they accepted my pre-registration and that I drove from NYS, he let me in after consulting with someone else. The last time that I went, it was in a 1963 Avanti. It took my back days to recover from that trip (due to the '63 Avanti seats).
