The Elegance at Hershey has announced the theme for this year’s event: the Era of Art Deco, and the visual arts movement of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. “The cars of that era have always been some of the most beautiful creations ever built,” noted Car Selection Chairman and Elegance Board member Mark Lizewskie. “The attention to detail and unique styling cues have made these automobiles some of the most sought after models among collectors”.

As the perfect kick-off to opening weekend of our Motoring Mysteries of the Far East exhibit there will be a 4th Generation (EF) Honda show on the grounds surrounding the AACA Museum. This is your chance to see some great Honda Civics and CRXs from 1988 – 1991. Anyone with one of these cars is welcome to participate – there is no entry fee, and no advance notice required. We will give all those who bring their car for the show a coupon to visit the AACA Museum exhibits for just $8 on that day.
So join the fun and bring your car or just enjoy viewing additional cars on view that day!
A Curious Collection of Asian & Pacific Vehicles
May 16, 2014 – Sept 2014
In these modern times, vehicles originating from far-away countries such as Japan and South Korea have become household brands such as Kia, Hyundai, Toyota or Honda with millions of loyal customers and followers. Other vehicles manufactured in Russia, India and beyond are still relatively unknown in this country and remain curiosities. The AACA Museum will celebrate and showcase the early roots and later creations of the Asian and Russian motoring industry and their impact within the United States. From the Pre-War years to the Kei class microcars of the 1960s, to the trucks and sports cars to appear later, these unique and seldom-seen vehicles are examples of an important historical part of the auto industry.

TIME: 6-8 PM
LOCATION: AACA Museum, 161 Museum Drive, Hershey PA (Just off Rte. 39 West @ 1 mile from Hersheypark)
