(Words and photos by Joe Grippo) – Here are a few shots I grabbed during the lulls of the rain during the 2013 AACA Swap Meet in Hershey, PA. Cool stuff you will see in here includes but is not limited to, An N.O.S. Allison airplane engine with ZERO hours of run time, some sweet 70′s goodness in the form of wagons, vans, or old street machines that guys are trying to sell, a 450k Bugatti and Joe posing with a bonafide TV star. A rainy day at Hershey still beats a day in the office 100 times out of 100.
After the swap meet we stopped over at the AACA Museum for the Pop Culture & Cars Exhibit. A bitchin’ nautical themed van, some pimptastic Les Dunham creations and Burt personal TA given to him by Pontiac…what’s not to like? Despite the liquid sunshine this looks like it was a fun day. It also seemed to suppress the crowd at t the event, so shoppers were probably able to snatch up some good buys from sellers looking to move some inventory!
