The Historical Car Club of Pennsylvania puts a punctuation mark on its 64th year with the eagerly anticipated Fall Meet and Flea Market at Delaware County Community College this Sunday, October 20th. This is the club's largest annual event with over 500 cars expected to decorate the terraced parking lots of the campus.
Founded in 1949, the HCCP is one of the oldest independent antique automobile clubs in the country and it is the largest in the tri-state area. The club is comprised of 14 officials and over 700 members from the eastern United States. The club is family oriented and it's members and board are dedicated to the ongoing enjoyment of antique, classic, and modified vehicles.
The jewel of the calendar year is the annual Fall Meet and Flea Market at the Media campus of DCCC. The event draws hundreds of vehicles and thousands of enthusiasts looking for the promise of enjoying fabulous cars on a pleasant fall day. The autumnal foliage provides a vivid canvas to the distinctive color palette of the show field. Visitors can expect vehicles representing every decade of the 20th century ranging from the brass era through the opulent Depression classics of the thirties, the pre and post war stylings of the forties, the jet age examples of the fifties, the burgeoning land barges of the sixties and the more pedestrian Detroit offerings from the seventies and eighties.
There is something for every taste at the show...trucks, motorcycles, fire engines, antiques, classics, muscle cars, race cars, customs, hot rods, station wagons and sports cars, from bone stock to modified, both foreign and domestic.
