A very successful motometer collection exhibit at the AACA's Hershey, Pennsylvania location, particularly during the biggest antique automobile Swap Meet/Rally Event was tremendously positive and exhilirating. Our website garnered hundreds of thousand more hits, clicks and interest from focused car fans around the world. And, we have enjoyed convesing and trading experiences with each and everyone of them.
Exhibit visitors seemed astonished to see so many and varied types of motometers in a single place and individual collection.
Request for further museum exhibits have been pouring in. And, we hope to someday be able to fulfill each and every requst.
