Hershey, PA (June 26, 2014) The AACA Museum will celebrate the fifth annual National Collector Car Appreciation Day on July 11, 2014 with car rides in AACA Museum antique vehicles. The date will mark the fifth consecutive commemoration in what is now an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. This automotive “holiday” has been marked each year since 2010 by a U.S. Senate Resolution and has been encouraged supported and promoted by the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Action Network.
If you’ve always wanted to ride in an Antique car this is your chance. Join us from 11AM – 1 PM for a ride in one of our AACA Museum vehicles along with some cool ice cream treats supplied by the AACA Museum. Tour the Museum to enjoy a stellar collection of original and restored antique vehicles including cars, buses, motorcycles and more. The AACA Museum collections span the decades from the 1890s to the 1980s presented against the backdrop of a cross-country journey from New York to SanFrancisco. The AACA Museum is currently featuring three special themed exhibits – “Motoring Mysteries of the Far East: A Curious Collection of Asian & Pacific Vehicles”; “Indian Nation: Indian Motorcycles & America” and “The Scrutineer” automotive art exhibit by Jay Texter. We’re also encouraging anyone with an antique car to join us for a “Cruise In” that afternoon – looking forward to sharing some hot cars and cool treats!
Vehicles of all makes, models, shapes and sizes are the woven in the fabric of our lives. Join us for a day of celebration as we continue to preserve the vehicles from the past for future generations.
