Diligently Restored, Dazzlingly Arrayed

Pennsylvania College of Technology provided a stunning backdrop for the Antique Automobile Club of America’s Grand National Meet from Thursday through Saturday, an exciting and extraordinary event that was the largest ever held by the organization. A joint project of the AACA Susquehannock Region and the Penn College Classic Cruisers student group, the gathering attracted more than 600 cars, trucks and motorcycles and thousands of participants and spectators. Activities for registrants and their families included tours of campus and local attractions, informative sessions in instructional labs, and social get-togethers … and two free events were open to the community: Friday’s keynote address by Lyn St. James in the Field House and Saturday’s car show – breathtakingly featuring 40 to 50 million dollars’ worth of automobiles – along the campus mall. A motivational speaker, St. James is a seven-time Indianapolis 500 competitor, the Indy’s first female Rookie of the Year and one of the “Top 100 Female Athletes of the Century” as chosen by Sports Illustrated. In addition to the photo gallery that follows, the memorable event is captured in a video on the college’s YouTube channel:
