Sizzling Summer Cruise In

Jun 19 @ 8:00 am 2:00 pm

This summer’s annual celebration event is our “Sizzling Summer Cruise In.” Bring your car, bring your family, bring your friends! Cruise In’s are family-friendly car gatherings open to all years, all makes and models. It’s a relaxed format and a chance to share your car with a wide variety of people.

Registration/participation is FREE, but due to current capacity guidelines, please let us know if you plan to attend.


Don’t miss two features of this extraordinary event. 

There will be a Studebaker and Tucker driving parade featuring the Museum’s own Tucker 1026, the only extant example with an automatic transmission! 

Jimmy Rosen of the Old Sled Works in Duncannon will be present in his 1937 Plymouth Sedan selling and autographing copies of his soon-to-be-released publication, Got Gas? This coffee table book features vintage Pennsylvania gas stations and garages. It is a collection of many rare images with short captions identifying the specific locations.  More information on both events to follow!
