Antique & Modified Antique Cars at the AACA Museum in Hershey, PA
(This post first appeared on suheiry, etc. on 3/10/14.)
On Saturday, my husband and I drove down to Hershey, PA to visit the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum. We had such a good time. The cars were gorgeous. Some of them were ostentatious, but even then they were fun and exciting.
FYI, this is a picture-heavy post.
^This 1968 Corvette has almost all its original parts. Only the exhaust has been replaced. And it has less than 10k miles on it! It's an absolutely gorgeous car. I couldn't stop admiring it until I realized we only had 15 minutes before the museum closed.
^This little guy was made from a Radio Flyer wagon and has a Honda 200 CC engine.
Located in the lower level of the AACA Museum is The Museum of Bus Transportation, which is equally fascinating.
^It's the bus from the movie Forrest Gump!
^We were admittedly overexcited when we spotted this antique Martz bus with its Wilkes-Barre sign.
And last but not least, the Hershey Kissmobile Cruiser, parked right in front of the museum.
The website says you need at least an hour and a half to fully enjoy the museum. We were there for 2 hours and were only able to visit the first floor and the underground level. Jonathan and I enjoyed stopping by almost every car, looking at them from all angles and then reading about them. Therefore we didn't get a chance to see everything. If you are an antique car enthusiast, you may want to allow yourself more time.
These photos are just a small sample of the beautiful cars at the AACA Museum. We plan on making another trip a bit earlier in the day to get a really good look at all the cars. Plus there are rare vehicles on the lower level that get switched out often with other rare vehicles in their storage.
If you get a chance to head down there, do it. It's a wonderful experience. The museum's address and phone number are on their website.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful week!
