I was in Hershey, Pennsylvania, last year at the same moment. Not just for Chocolate but to see the famous vintage cars meeting.
It's known to be the bigger event for vintage cars lovers in the world since 1955!!!
It's a kind of huge flea market but just for cars.
This meeting takes place this week-end for 4 days in Hershey. I think about sharing this incredible meeting with you because I'm pictured with my husband in the french press because of this:

It's so huge that is hard to see everything even in 4 days!!! I was quite afraid to have to look at vintage cars parts for 4 days but I wanted to please my husband who is crazy about 50's cars.
I didn't regret to be there, it was really fun!!!
The cars were amazing, never seen so much oldtimers in one place.
All people were really friendly and we met guys from everywhere in the world looking for some rare parts to restore a car. All hotels about 20 miles from Hershey were full and it was fun to see all those vintage cars parked in front of the motels, everybody talking about vintage cars in restaurants, supermarkets, fuel stations...
Moreover among hundred and hundred stalls, there were not only greasy cars parts but also books, vintage clothing, ads, toys... and more!!!
So much things to buy at quite affordable prices but hard to pack in my small suitcase...
You can shop the first 3 days and the car show is on Saturday.
When the 50's met the 20's... a fun moment among others!
I will remember this week-end forever because of the souvenir that I bought here... too large to be packed in our luggages!
Follow my next post to know the story of my vintage car...
