Somehow I managed to miss that Das Awkscht Fescht is, in fact, one of the biggest antique car show and classic car show in the country. It spans over three days and has between 800 and 1,300 cars at one time. It takes place on a 42 acre park, where they also have bingo, a flea market, live music, and so many other fun things going on for family’s and friends.
Driving through to find parking to go the antique car show, I was immediately let down because I only saw a couple of antique and classic cars from the street. I could not help but think that we drove all the way to Macungie to see this classic car show for nothing. Walking inside the gates, I even uttered the words; “I guess we won’t be coming back next year.” I might have jumped the gun and I miiiight be very a little dramatic. It is one of my best traits, after all.
I barely had my foot on the grounds and I was disappointed by what I had not yet seen. Adam was trying to alleviate my ridiculousness by reminding me that we had not even gotten more than two feet into the gates of the antique car show and to just be patient. HA! Me?
And then suddenly…
Clearly I was overreacting because as we all now know…it is in fact one of the biggest antique and classic car show in the country.
This year was the 60th anniversary of the Chrysler 300, so there were manyyy Chrysler 300 cars showcased at this antique car show and classic car show:
Now, we have never been to an antique car show or a classic car show for that matter, but we have been to a couple museum that had these cars showcased. There is something about being up close and personal with these cars without something dividing us, that is incredible.
To say I am a car enthusiast would be a stretch. I used to call horsepower, volts. It made for a very interesting conversation at the car dealership when we were discussing two completely different things while thinking that it was the same exact thing. So, while I admired the prettiness of the cars, Adam admired everything else about them.
