Report on the 2103 NEPA Vintage Motors Revival
July 28, 2013

2013 Winners List | News Reports


Despite the new venue and despite the impending weather forecast, the 2013 NEPA Vintage Motors Revival not only went off as scheduled, it was awesome.

The numbers look like this: More than 110 cars registered, and more than 1,500 spectators came to see the show. Boy Scout Troop 281 from Dallas grossed more than $3,000 for food and concessions. Valley Aviation flew both general aviation planes and the warbirds ALL DAY LONG!

Team members started showing up at 6:50 a.m. to help set up. Within an hour we had both entrances set up, the show car registration tent and regalia and Chinese auction tent all erected. All along, we were watching the sky for the impending storms. After the tents were set up, Marianne Ostrowsky placed the rosary on the main tent and proclaimed that we were covered, no rain today!

There was rain to the north and a bunch of rain to the south, but none at the show! Spectators starting pouring in around 11a.m., and didn’t stop all day. We had airplanes pulling ad banners through the sky proclaiming the car show and airplane rides!

One side story was Ken and Debbie Ely. They started out Saturday night in the TR-3B from their home near Montrose and the weather was so bad they turned around in Tunkhannock and headed back home. But they drove their regular wheels to the show on Sunday and volunteered all day long! And the Ely’s weren’t the only club members who didn’t have a car at the show but showed up and worked all day. Thank you!

The most important part of this show and the reason we were as successful as we were, was teamwork. We had a huge percentage of the club show up and pitch in with jobs that needed to be done. That’s why our club is thriving and adding new members monthly.

The club will review the show top to bottom, looking at what made it good and where we fell short. We’ll come up with new ideas to make the 2014 NEPA Vintage Motors Revival one for the record books, again!
