2020 AACA Fall Meet Coverage: Photos Of The Vintage Iron That Showed Up In Droves!

(Words and photos by Joe Grippo) – A few months ago, when the word came down that the annual massive gearhead gathering known as Hershey was shelved for 2020, the car hobby collectively sighed and said “…we saw that coming.” But then the Antique Automobile Club of America announced a special show in Gettysburg, Pa in early November, so we circled that weekend on the calendar and made our plans. When the date rolled around, mother nature cut us a break and we got a nearly cloudless, perfectly sunny warm November day. And when well over 400 antique, classic and muscle cars showed up it made for a glorious Saturday.  A huge shout out to the Gettysburg Region of the AACA for pulling the show together at the almost 11th hour.

I have a few galleries to share, so let’s start it off with the oldest stuff in attendance: the cars and trucks of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Check the gallery for an abundance of Model A Fords, cool fat fendered era stuff, the cherriest of trucks and some jaw dropping Lincolns and Cadillacs. A few of my favorites were the huge by large, straight 8 powered Buick Woody, the greyish 1937 Lincoln V12 with the Brunn bodied coachwork and the dare I say cute, bright red, flat-bed, Chevy cab-over.  The ’37 Sudebaker Dictator and ’41 Willys coupes stopped us in our dead in our tracks as well. Tons of great stuff everywhere in the show areas.

More later.

    Show was great. Kind of the perfect storm thing. People pent up all year wanting to go “anywhere”, a place that was big enough to have it, and 80º weather in PA in November. That’ll probably never happen again. I actually liked that location better than Hershey. Guess I shouldn’t say that since I’m a lifetime member but oh well. It’s the truth.
