I spent June 10, 2012, at The Elegance at Hershey in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Featuring rare and seldom seen cars from the pre-World War II and immediate post-World War II period, this was not your everyday car show.
Of special interest to me was a 1921 Brewster 91 Double Enclosed-Drive Sedan. Frank and Patricia Wisner, the owners, are from Stratford, Connecticut, and have owned the car for two years. If you are not familiar with the Brewster, it’s because only 473 were made. At present, only 23 are known to be still in existence, with this car being the only known Brewster with a double enclosed drive. The car has been driven for less than 27,000 miles and is completely unrestored. The original owner was Mrs. H. D. Auchincloss, the step-grandmother of Jacqueline Kenney Onassis and Gore Vidal.
Two other cars of particular interest were a 1937 Horch 853A Cabriolet owned by James W. Taylor of Gloversville, New York, and a 1938 Talbo-Lago Type 23 Teardrop Coupe owned by the Cantore family of Oak Brook, Illinois. The Horch car has fewer than 36,000 miles in it and is unrestored. The Talbo-Lago was once owned by Standard Oil heiress Beatrice Cartwright and was restored in 2000.
