    There was a good selection of Model A Sheetmetal and some other items most notably AD Chevy. One of the large “usual” sheet metal vendors from out west was not there.

    Heck, I scored a decent fender for an OT car.

    I think 36 or 48 I’m not really sure it was a show car in the 60s has a bunch of chrome under the hood and I believe a 66 327 fuel injected motor in it and it comes with the original motor. Sorry I can’t be of more help but something like that is punching out of my weight class so I tend to not look at the price.

    Thanks for sharing your Hershey 2021 experience for those of us who couldn't go, in my case I am Canadian and not allowed to cross over the US border.

    Here you go I’ve probably cornered the market on 32 to 34 truck cowl vents and dash plaques from shows I’ve never been to and expanded my body hammer Selection. Plus bought all the ruff 32 Ford truck fenders. 87E07804-DF92-4500-8A7C-6A15264A6CFB.jpeg D3779217-E6AD-41E7-8D48-5259FCB4C547.jpeg D3779217-E6AD-41E7-8D48-5259FCB4C547.jpeg 71BA587E-EC43-48D7-A611-D29448265BB0.jpeg 93274CDF-1207-4F1A-B3D5-8E680CC0E316.jpeg

    Sad about that as there were some excellent vendors from Canada noticeably absent. I’m sure too that a huge number of purchasers from other countries were not there as well.
    All in all, our loss.

    I saw a tag on it that said 15k. Not sure what would get it in your garage though.

    I got the windshield frame because it fit the measurements for my panel truck that needs a windshield frame and it was cheap. You wouldn’t believe all the people that asked me if I collect dash plaques because of the frame. Hated to tell them they were all coming off to just to get the windshield frame. I think I did pretty well on the other Stuff as well

    elgringo71 : Thanks for the close-up of the Offy! I've been in love with them since the spread in(I believe?) "Sports Car Graphic" from the early 1960's documenting Griff Borgeson's bringing the "Packard Cable Special" back to the US, along with accompanying detail section on the "Miller 91", which is basically this motors "daddy"!

    That gold homemade log intake, that Mr. Cheater posted on page one; cracks me up! I bought that when I was 14, in 1971 at Hershey for $15.00. I intended to use it on my ‘52 flatty… till I figured out it’s for a big Lincoln flathead V8. I sold it at Hershey in about 1989 for about $200.00. It figures, it’s still bouncing around the same meet…50 years later! As a side note, it used to be painted an awesome shade of candy apple green.
