Rare auto auction to benefit Antique Auto Club museum

Hershey, PA – The Antique Automobile Club of America will once again benefit from a unique auction held to raise money for the Club’s museum in Hershey, Pennsylavania.

Blackhawk Auctions, owned by Donald Williams and Richie Clyne, is gathering more than eighty rare, vintage and classic collectible automobiles from world-class collectors to auction in the Great American Ballroom at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center on Friday,
October 11, 2002 beginning at 6:00 PM.

The No Reserve auction, now in its second year, grossed nearly $5,000,000 in 2001 and raised $235,000 for the new AACA Museum, affiliated with the Antique Automobile Club of America. An
80,000 square foot facility, the museum will tell the story of automobile and bus history. Williams and Clyne, avid auto enthusiasts, support the Museum because it will become “an institution of America’s oldest automobile club, which in great part, has been the epicenter of motoring history.”
