  • Pictures of the Show Cars at Hershey

    I finally got my pictures I took at Hershey on Webshots. Here is the link:

    http://rides.webshots.com/album/561097276JcKIQe

    The first picture has a friend who is in our local AACA chapter. He is Reggie Nash (on the right). His 1904 Rambler won a first place in his class.

    There were a good many Studebakers in the show.

    This 53 Commander hardtop was for sale at Hershey last year. It has 19,000 miles on it. I took pictures of the underside. It was restored and looks like new. I don't know why the yellow color. I think it might just be the light on the camera.









    Another interesting car was a Packard made for the then president of Packard, Ed Macauley. It was called the Phantom II. It had a blower.





    One of the Studebaker owners was dressed up in period costume. Actually he looks a lot like my grandfather. There was also a couple dressed in period costume with an EMF, but sadly my camera had killed its batteries by the time I saw them.

    The red Commander belongs to Ed Ellis in Ocean City who also was the former owner of the $50K black 4x4. This car has an interesting story as it was originally sent to Central America and then brought back to the states.

        Yes, I spoke to Ed and below is his picture by the car. He said he sold the car at Hershey last year to a guy in Sweeden and received a $1,000 deposit and then never heard any more from him. He thinks the maybe he passed away.



        Notice that there were 3 Studebakers right in that area.

        Below is the story of the Ellis car.

                Cool pics Leonard. Canadian content too - the Tudhope also known as Tudhope McIntyre. One correction if I may, though. The one labelled as a Du Pont is actually a 1932 Marmon V16.

                    Leonard, I thought Hershey '07 was supposed to be completely on pavement for the first time this year?

                    I had two hotel rooms reserved for nine months or so, but with a new job in September, got a funny look from my boss when I mentioned taking a couple days off in October already (we told the client we'd have the job wrapped up in October). So, alas, I didn't make it this year.

                        Thanks for catching that Terry. I made the change. There has been a lot of discussion about the show field in the grass on the AACA forum. A lot of owners don't like it. I like a grass field, myself. It is much cooler.

                        I tried to catch Studebaker owners with their cars and here are the ones I got.











                        This is not Studebaker related, but I have heard a lot of people say that they hoped they would never see one of these at a car show...well here it is!
