Age of Aquarius Exhibit: AACA Museum
Today, ride along to Hershey, Pennsylvania for another opportunity to catch up with our friends at the AACA Museum. Executive Director, Jeff Bliemeister and Nancy Gates (Director of Marketing & Communications) stayed late the other night to share the museum’s latest “Age of Aquarius” exhibit.
This new exhibit – which focuses on esoteric and period-centric vehicles spanning from 1967 into the Disco Era of the 1970’s – features one-off, flower-power and muscle-power vehicles like:
- The “Waltzing Matilda” Volkswagen Beetle
- A Woodstock-tribute VW bus
- An eye-catching Mod-top Barracuda
- A nautical-themed van -- one of the very first, known custom vans -- affectionately named the “HMS Truckie”
Listen in as Jeff tells you about the DeSoto Club’s space in the museum as well as the exciting, upcoming 2020 exhibit – “Yeah, It’s Got a Hemi.”
It is time for some automotive fun and education.
