MECUM AUCTIONS OFFICIAL TIRE AND WHEEL SPONSOR SHOP ONLINE NOW! SCAN WITH PHONE CAMERA Manufactured at great expense, the luxurious Continental Mark II was only produced in 1956 and 1957 model years. A total of 3,014 cars were built during that two-year run. The struggle with such a rare vehicle is finding restoration parts.

So, when you see one of these cars at an event, know that the owner has gone to great lengths to bring the car back to its former glory.

“Trucks… often wend their way into our hearts by being good companions…” We include coverage of trucks in most issues of HCC, and from what we’ve heard over the years, you approve. If you maintain an interest in vintage cars, it’s likely you have some degree of appreciation for classic trucks, too. But I find it interesting that, generally speaking, our fondness for each doesn’t necessarily come from the same place.

Whether it was performance or style, something about that car made you want it. Trucks, on the other…

aaca museum going pedal to the metal

WITH THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA LIFTING MOST COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, THE AACA Museum is returning to full capacity. Three new exhibits are now open: Keep on Truckin’: Light-Duty Trucks; Hershey’s History: Before and after Chocolate, and Iconic Chevrolets. Keep on Truckin’ looks at a century-long evolution of the pickup truck, from a utilitarian vehicle to today’s performance and luxury haulers. Look for oldies such as the Chevrolet El Camino and Ford Ranchero, early Pennsylvania-made trucks, as well as popular pickups like Dodge’s Li’l Red Express. Among the historic trucks on display are this 1957 F-150, powered by a 272-cu.in. Y-block V-8, mated to a three-speed manual with a three-on-the-tree shifter. Hershey’s History: Before and after Chocolate preserves, promotes, and interprets the historical heritage of Derry Township. In this exhibit, visitors will learn about…

LIME ROCK PARK HAS BEGUN ITS 65TH season and officials have announced that, after no major spectator competitions last year, the 1.5-mile track is open with health and safety protocols to ensure worry-free events. “Lime Rock Park is the perfect venue for spectators to finally get back outside after too many months of confinement,” said Dicky Riegel, Lime Rock’s president and CEO. “Its natural amphitheater setting on 400 acres allows fans to view the action and get comfortable from a huge range of locations,” he continued. “With no grandstands on the property, race fans can spread out a blanket and lawn chairs, enjoy food and drink from our concession stands and other offerings, and take in all the great racing within the open, beautiful park grounds.” The final major event of…
