The new classes for muscle cars are paying off.  More First Gens showing up at national meets.
Sorry for glare on pictures... sun moved from bright to overcast all day.

Good show, better weather on Saturday, but the worst in lack of advertising locally. 7 miles from my house, and I found out about it Thursday.

I can't blame this on the AACA, but I was amazed this size of show could sneak in here without at least some warning or propaganda.

All AACA meets are open to the public.  The crowd on Saturday was a little light, so maybe the local chapter did not get the word out locally. Most of the hotels in Lebanon had the meet on their marques along with the "No Vacancy" signs.  The restaurants and stores we went in knew we were there.  At any rate, you can always look at the AACA calendar.

AACA Grand National meet is always a "must see"!  Muscle cars are becoming more & more popular there.  Also, even if you don't have a particular interest in the brass era cars - you'll appreciate the incredible level of detail & workmanship.  Next year it's going to be in AZ, so the participation will probably be down a bit - the membership is not as heavily concentrated out west.  They try to move it around the country so that everyone is within reasonable driving distance at some point.  It's a very friendly group of car people!

Yep, dems da rules... And it's actually a good idea to carry one in every car.
There's a little box that has to be checked on the judging sheet. and it does have to be charged.
BTW, the first time you run over one under your wheel, you realize it is better to put it beside the wheel or someplace noticeable in the car (like the trunk).

I think around a dozen at the Grand National: the ones you see in this thread from class 36 and a few more from class 27 -production cars.  There is no drivers participation class at the GN.  I'll know the exact number when National posts the results.
The white former drag racer was a really interesting car.

Hershey is only 4 to 5 miles farther than Gettysburg from where I'm at. Interesting as I was at Latimore race track last month! Great track that was saved and extremely nice race museum.

If you want to join a region, which you probably should, I strongly suggest G-burg. We can take this off line if you want? Hershey has a waiting list among other things.

Booked a room at Comfort Inn this morning.... We judge but do not show at Hershey, so that means we will only be in town about 36 hours.  But I'd like to link up with anyone who plans to be there.  Lunch on Friday, maybe...?

Probably/maybe know him by sight, but not name. I'm the rookie, mostly stand around and look good. I belong to EMMR, who does the certification, try to help out. Not an HR member.
