Hershey 2018

We are looking forward to the 2018 AACA, Antique Automobile Club of America Eastern National Meet.....Hershey, this October.  Thousands of people from all countries around the world make the pilgrimage to the largest display of cars, parts, and automobilia in the world.

Each year Harold says, "Hershey always has a car that you have never seen before."  And 2017 didn't disappoint, compliments  of Hyman Ltd. of St. Louis, Missouri.  The 1955 Cadillac Die Valkyrie concept car design by Brooks Stevens and constructed by Hermann Spohn, made the car show circuit during 1955 and 1956. Officially 2 were produced but rumor has it a couple more may exist. 

The Die Valkyrie features a prominent "V" shaped front bumper and a more modest posterior.  The black and white color scheme makes an elegant presentation accompanied by its plush Mercedes 300 seats and luxurious interior; a more detailed history and specifications may be found on the Hyman Ltd. website. The Die Valkyrie is one of the rarest of concept cars available in the marketplace. Hats off got Hyman Ltd. for offering this stunning example of automotive history.

What unique vehicles will we find at Hershey in 2018?  We'll only have to wait until October 10 to find out.  Happy hunting!!!
