Das Awkscht Fescht (Car Show in Macungie, Pennsylvania -- August 1-3, 2008)

Billed as one of the country's largest antique and classic car shows, "das Awkscht Fescht" (Pennsylvania Dutch for "The August Festival") should draw over 1,400 antique and classic cars from 33 automobile clubs.

This year should be interesting. The Crosley Club has thrown down the gauntlet. They are challenging the Nash Metropolitan Club to see which club can show up with more cars. Historically the Mets have fielded about 15 cars at the event. This is the Crosley Club's first year at Das Awkscht Fescht, but they are hoping to get as many as 20 cars to the show. (Wishful thinking? -- Perhaps...but we'd like to see them pull it off.)

So...all you Crosley and Metropolitan fans should dust off the cars and bring them to the show. And the rest of us will have lots of great cars to see.
