Antique Autos in History Park filled History Park with a great display of 160 pre-1946 vehicles. Along with many Ford Model Ts and As and Chevrolets, there were rare autos such as a Mitchell, Pierce Arrow, Franklin, Auburn, Star, Durant, Flint and Detroit Electric to mention a few. This year, Packards were featured, and there were 13 with a presentation by Milt Wheeler. Many of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association, Branch #3 displayed their hit-and-miss engines and tractors. The event started with a dance performance featuring 1920s dances followed by a skit by the Portraits of the Past. A Dixieland band entertained the many participants and visitors, as did a Barbershop Quartet. A documentary video on Packard: An American Classic Car was shown. The event ended with awards for early period costumes and door prizes. It was a beautiful day in San Jose which brought many visitors to the event.
Thank you for bringing your antique autos to the event and for helping with the many tasks required to put on this event. And a big “thank you” to Peder and Maria Jorgensen for coordinating AAHP.
