Default Pics: The Antique Automobile Club of America Museum

The Antique Automobile Club of America Museum (AACA) has a very nice museum in Hershey, PA, that I had a chance to visit a while ago.

http://www.aacamuseum.org/visit/map-directions/

I would like to share some photographs that I took during this visit. The equipment used was a Nikon D7000 with the 18-300 mm f3.5-6.3 lens, handheld.

The famous Hershey Kissmobile was in the foyer to the museum on the day I visited. The lobby has a gorgeous Alfa Romeo 8C to set the scene. The mission statement for the museum is opposite the ticket counter.

The lobby has a few rotating displays that are changed periodically. Upon entering the displays, one lands in the early era.

There is a good collection of sports cars, but the best part is perhaps the Tucker collection.

The engineering details of the Tucker show just how far ahead it was in its time compared to its competitors.

There are several Tuckers engines on display, as well as a few spartan small cars that make for an interesting contrast between post-war Europe and USA.

The details on early home made cars are quite intricate. There is a rare stainless steel Thunderbird in the museum that was never mass-produced. This museum also has many well-preserved buses.
