  • There's More to Hershey, Pennsylvania Than Chocolate Kisses

    Yes, this is a BMW...the 1957 BMW Isetta on display at Hershey. (Photo courtesy Jil McIntosh)

    But as a car enthusiast, you already knew that.

    The Antique Automobile Club of America's Eastern Division has their Fall Meet each October, and the town of Hershey has hosted the event each year since 1955. It's considered one of the largest antique automobile shows and flea markets in the United States, with about 1,500 cars on display.

    But there's more than just beautiful antique cars on display. There are quite a few uniquely unusual automobiles on display, and the associated flea market has antique and not-so-antique items for sale that would be appropriate decor for your garage or shop.

    Where else could you get a 1926 Rickenbacker hood ornament, a 1927 Clear Vision gas pump, or an Omaha taxi meter?

    In case you didn't make it to Hershey for this year's show, Jil McIntosh, writer for the Sympatico.ca Autos blog, was there, camera in hand. I think you'll enjoy the nostalgic trip through the flea market and show. The slide show starts when you click here.
