  1. :confused:anyone know of any good car shows or drags in mid august around PA/NJ area? My sons coming to visit and i am not finding anything good on internet searches, so i thought i would put it out on the HAMB, the only place I can rely on.

    The "Great Pottsville Cruise" should be huge this year. The Speed Channel's Dennis Gage from "My Classic Car" will be there to film the event on the 2nd weekend in August.

    I might be off but I think that was a Jersey car at one point.
  14. Das Awkscht Fescht is great- used to go every summer- nice show with a large, ecclectic (but pretty well-organized) group of cars, a good large flea market, arts and crafts show for the wife, and a really good toy show at the shcool up the road (bussing is free). Just take gatorade/water with you, 'cause it's always HOT (they do have great water ice 1/2 of the way through the flea market).

    The Great Pottsville Cruise goes on for most of the week, I think Aug 6-10 this year; Car show in Brodheadsville south of I-80 on Sunday Aug 10; If you're still around on Saturday the 23rd meet us for H.A.M.B. and Scrapple near Reading. Tentative plans are for a cuppla shop tours (helps digest the scrapple, to get up and walk around a lot).
