The August Festival

In Macungie, Pennsylvania, each August there is an immense three-day antique and classic car show called Das Awkscht Fescht, which draws many hundreds of cars over the weekend and many thousands of visitors. This year’s event was the 49th annual edition.

Each year, Das Awkscht Fescht has a "feature car," and this year that car was the Crosley. The Crosley Automobile Club assembled a great display of various Crosley vehicles (and other Crosley products such as refrigerators and radios), and the Vintage Club participated alongside them.

The vintage TQ display was impressive and garnered much attention. The cars of Bill Force Sr., Gary Mondschein, Jay Young, and Sonny Hull were on display. Vice President Tom Berry worked the booth throughout the weekend, and many club members stopped by including Tom Hindley, Jim Hempfill, Wayne Laucius, Robert Noll, Bob Marlow and more.

"Your TQs attracted an amazing amount of interest" Crosley club representative Duane Gorrell told us. Our thanks go to the Crosley club for welcoming us into their display.
