Hershey 2018, Part III

Time for round three at Hershey’s 2018 event. As before, special thanks are due to Dave Smith and Sal Darigo, Jr. for taking all of these great photos. Some cars you may see again, in different pictures, simply because they were favorites of mine. You know the drill by now! Pictures and little to no text. So let’s go!

1960 Chrysler New Yorker Town & Country wagon.

The Town & Country again. What a beautiful wagon! I love the 1960-62 Chryslers, especially the New Yorkers.

1974 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency four-door hardtop.

1936 Pierce-Arrow.

1958 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Holiday hardtop, in Heather and Mountain Haze two-tone.

1958 Olds

The Ninety-Eight convertible was shown in the same hue in the 1958 brochure. Stunning!

1957 Cadillac Series 62 two-door hardtop.

1954 Packard Panama two-door hardtop.

1958 Studebaker President Starlight two-door hardtop. This body style was used for only one year, and shared with the final 1958 Packard two-door hardtop.

1979 Volvo 265GL station wagon. These used the “PRV” six cylinder engine, so named because the design was a combined engineering effort between Peugeot, Renault and Volvo. That same engine was later used in a fledgling sporty car called the DeLorean-as I’m sure many of you know.

1952 Nash Ambassador Custom Country Club hardtop.

1971 Plymouth Fury II four door sedan. These are pretty thin on the ground nowadays, as many were dolled up as police cars and wrecked in 1970s movies, or used originally as taxis and police cars.

You can tell it’s a Fury II by the thin chrome side molding. The ne plus ultra cheapskate full-size Plymouth, the Fury I, had no side trim at all.

1957 Volga. Perfect for Boris and Natasha when they’re chasing Moose and Squirrel!

Late 1950s Dual Ghia. These were a serial production version of the Dodge Firearrow dream cars of the early ’50s. They were built not by Chrysler, but Dual Motors, were notoriously expensive, and favored by ’50s movie stars and celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball.

And finally, a cool blue 1964 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 Holiday hardtop. And, for now, that’s all folks. But never fear, I still have many more pictures from this event to share! Until next time…

64 Olds

    Wow, a Volga. I’ve have seen Trabants at car shows twice but I’ve never seen a single Russian car in my life, I would love to talk to the owner.

    Love the late era Forward Look cars now more than before. There’s something about them that I’ve become attracted to recently. Glad to see the wagon in a little more detail.

    Speaking of detail, Something about the Studebaker featured here reminded me of a Forward Look era DeSoto, actually, they would have been contemporaries. I’ve mentioned this before, they look like 7/8th scale Chrysler products. Which in my assessment, is not a bad thing. But 60 years ago? It might have been.

    When I was at the Gilmore last month, I specifically went to the Pierce Arrow barn to look for the Silver Arrow that I swore was there. I think the last time I was in that barn (2009) they did have one there, but not now. Bummer. Glad to see the cars from Buffalo have not been completely forgotten.
