October, 2014 -- The sweet smell of chocolate -- that's usually what you'll first notice when visiting Hershey, Pennsylvania. But, in early October, the main attraction is throngs of classic cars that converge in this small town, otherwise known as Chocolatetown, USA. The Eastern Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Fall Meet, which has been hosted by the Hershey AACA since 1955, once again had all roads leading to the grounds surrounding Hersheypark. This classic car festival consisted of over 9,000 swap meet spaces, over 1,000 car corral spaces, and approximately 1,500 show cars. The car corral and swap meet were held all four days, Hershey's AACA Museum was open to the public all four days, and the AACA car show and judging took place on Saturday.
In conjunction with the Fall Meet, RM Auctions, which is known for offering some of the best of the best in the collector car market, returned to Hershey for a two-day auction. Vehicles spanned from the early years of the automobile to late model sports cars. Also on the docket -- an 1860 stage coach, classic wooden runabout boats, and early steam-powered cars. The star car on Thursday, the first night of the auction, was a 1930 V-16 Roadster, selling for a cool million.
