Day one feel free to add your pictures
Very cool thanks for sharing
what did the dodge duel carb / split exhaust selling for ?
And pic 10 what are those manifold off ?
Nice looking '57 Lincoln caps in the picture with that tank, weren't you looking for some of those? Cool pics, lots of cool stuff I'll have to learn to live without.
I’m out here looking for one right now those just happened to be in the picture
Manifolds from op are Fenton for SBC
Enjoyed reconnecting with so many fine people the most but the photos show some of the sights:
those are fenton cast iron headers with dual outlets for a small block chev. they were being repopped a few years back
Glad me and my Canadian dollars weren't there , lots of great stuff !!!!
If you happen to find a good deal on a pair, I'll go halvsies with you, I've got 3 and am looking for a fourth.
Thanks for the pics, love pics of Hershey.
I’m not sure what they were asking for the dodge split manifold. And Fenton manifolds fit a small block Chevy they were repops and he was asking $600 for those
That little motor in pic #6... Did you happen to catch a price tag? It's OK to mention the numbers : I've already checked with my cardiologist, & I'm sitting down... LOL!! Yes, I do know what it is(Let's see if I can make a package deal on it & that blue v8-60 midget to really make my day....)
I like what y'all saw...I never tire of the mish mash of vintage everything and the survivors and projects...more more more...pics!!!!!
That is one Biggy I can say I visited once many moons ago...
I take it is still on...the weather is being cooperative I hope...sure is primo this way...
The little motor in photo six was priced at 15K.
I like some of the coach built car. One guy in particular built some prewar speedsters based off of earlier pre 40s drivetrains (3rd pic).
Thanks or the photos. I was in Chicago visiting never before seen relatives, so I missed Hershey. How were the crowds? Masked, polite or idiots?
And here are a few more. All in all, people friendly and well behaved. So friendly that two guys walked up to me and talked up quite a storm as if I knew them talking about things from years back. The talked so much I never get to tell them I never met them before.
Day two of things I liked
That engine belonged to Stan Lobitz, didn't sell at the auction last Sunday.
I was hoping to make it there this year. Still on the hunt for 49-51 shoebox wagon inside windshield moldings.
Thanks "62pan" & "woodscaper"!! I do realize that the "little motor" is an Offy for a vintage midget, & depending on condition, $15K is not that bad a price, even if not in my retirement budget. The real problem is finding an expert to properly rebuild it, as most of the Offy experts have passed on. (Or at the very least, retired.)
Great pics, thanks for sharing! Looks like decent weather for this year, sorry I'm missing it. Although my wallet and wife are thankful I'm busy with work...
I’ve always wanted to go. I actually had a hotel reservation this year but ultimately cancelled it because I spent my nonsense money on other stuff . How was the sheet metal (not repro) selection?
Thanks for posting!
I think, but I am not sure, but I believe it is ready to run? Lynn Paxton thru the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing is the contact person for this part of Stan's estate, and there was 2 of them that didn't meet reserve at the auction I was told. I wasn't at the auction, but I saw that engine myself at Hershey and it is BEAUTIFUL!
Thanks for posting the great pictures guys @Mr cheater so what did you bring home?
Ok, here’s some more from Thursday:
Here’s some from today starting with a friendly morning sky and ending with the “mystery fender” following me home.
Will close with my last view of the grounds until next year.
@Mr cheater, do you know how much they were asking for the Black 1961 Corvette? It’s a beauty.
