Howard reiterated how to obtain titles to vehicles which are not titled and have no paperwork. See Howard for details on the procedure.


Howard mentioned that Hershey had 8,000 swap meet booths, there were about 500 cars, and the auction was fun, especially the sale of the 1927 Austin rumble seat coupe selling for $25,000.
