October 4-7, 2017 (Wednesday – Saturday)
Just a reminder that we will be at the AACA Hershey Swap Meet and hope to meet you there! Many of our fellow Moon Car Club members attend, so please consider joining us!
The meet is located in beautiful HerAACA Hershey Swap Meet
shey, PA on the grounds and parking lots surrounding Hershey Park and The Giant Center. Hershey is considered one of the largest antique automobile shows and flea markets in the United States.
It consists of over 9,000 flea market spaces, over 1,000 car corral spaces, and approximately 1,500 show cars. Each year the show attracts visitors from all over the United States and many countries throughout the world. Some of the most unusual cars and parts can be found at Hershey. If you love antique cars, Hershey is the place to be.
We have a spot for you to meet up in the Orange Field (OAI 51-52) and we have a listing in the Hershey book for Moon parts & Ford Model A parts. I will try to bring some things to Hershey about the club and will be around to meet anyone that is interested in the club.
As in past Hershey meets, we invite all club members attending the meet to stop by on Thursday afternoon around 4 pm to meet and greet each other.
We have updated the website to include the pictures from the 2017 Moon Meet that was held in Tacoma, Washington last week. Look for them under the 2017 Moon Meet tab on the main website page. Enjoy!!!!!!
This year, the Horseless Carriage Club of MO has created a special display category of “Made in St. Louis – Pre-1932” and the Moon Car club will have some Moons at the Concours d’ Elegance along with other early cars & trucks that were made in St. Louis. This grand tradition is now in its 56th year in the park. The show will be on the upper Muny Opera parking lot beginning at 11 AM.. Come see us on Easter! And if you have a pre-1932 vehicle that was made in St. Louis and would like to bring it to the show, please contact us at Mooncarclub@gmail.com

I am sure there are more reasons to join and be a part of what I believe is going to be a GREAT car club as witnessed at the Moon Meets we have held the past 6 years. We had a wonderful start with lots of enthusiasm by everyone who attended with many more wishing that they could have attended. But whether you can ever attend one of our club meets or just stay connected via our newsletters, emails and website, know that all of our interests are with the cars made by The Moon Motor Car Company – “Favorably known the world over”.
