Class 34A or DPC?  I'll have my '91 Grand Marquis in HPOF.  I'll be judging Saturday morning but will try and make it a point to check out 34A/DPC.

Yeah there sure are.  Foreign and domestic models.

I'll be in class 34A.  Love those Grand Marquis.  My parents had an 84 Grand Marquis for about 15 years, very comfortable and a great road trip cruiser.  As has been said countless times...  Should have never sold it.

There are so many different cars at Hershey (not to mention the car corral and parts flea market), it's tough to see everything on the show field on show day (Saturday), unless you do a quick walk through and that's even tough.  I really enjoy talking with the owners.  Their are some really great stories.  Lots of good people.  Definitely the premier AACA show.

Below are all the different show classes.

Are you going for a Junior/Senior/Preservation?  Looking forward to seeing your fastback.

I'll be heading up Wed. for the parts / flea market. Not a lot of 60's era stuff but some odds and ends here and there. Definitely need a good pair of walking shoes as things are quite spreadout. Will any or many show cars be onsite Wednesday??

I'm competing for my Senior.

I don't think you will see too many (if any) cars on the show field on Wednesday.  However, The car corral will be open.  The show field is open Saturday.

Good luck!  I hope you get your Senior!  I got mine at the New Bern Meet back in August.

Thanks Mark, this is only my second year at Hershey.  I was pleased to see how organized and clean it was.     :)

I had a great time at the show.  Mustangs are my favorites but I love to see all the classic cars, some real unique examples.  There are so many nice cars its mind boggling!  Some really good examples from the late 1800's up through 1991 not to mention some really rare stuff too.  I'm glad that people take the time and of course money to preserve and care for these classics.

It was nice to meet you Matt!  Too bad we didn't have more time to chat.  I arrived at the show field about an hour before judging commenced and wished we had more time to talk.  I know as a judge you were busy too.  I'm glad you stopped by to say hello.  It's people like you and many others on this forum that volunteer your time that make these shows possible.  I thank you.  I had a great time.  Hopefully we will cross paths again.
