You're right Kevin, Hershey is the ONE. I haven't gone to Carlisle in quite a few years because there never seemed to be much old stuff there anymore. I don't think you can park overnight in the paid spectator parking lots. They have special lots for overnight parking for campers and such. I don't know what they charge. The Hershey Company (HERCO) charges you wherever you park. I don't know it they can be contacted to find out or what. Gone are the days when we used to park along Hershey Park Drive for free. Tuesday is vendor setup day. Wednesday thru Friday flea market is open. If you walk every aisle and look for parts it would probably take you the three days. Saturday a few vendors may be open, but most close up for the car show and judging. Best bet is to purchase a program. It has all the vendors listed by name, by specialty with their space numbers, and maps to find them. My spaces are C4V 16 & 17 in the Chocolate Field. I'm usually not there though. I have more fun hunting for stuff I need.

Hershey is great, I believe there is a campground outside of the Hershey Park grounds. You also might try to contact the Hershey Region Antique Automobile Club of America they have a website just on this event.

Kevin, just thought of something else that might save you money if you want to sleep in your truck. There is a Rest Area on I- 81 just south of the Rt 743 exit (the first Hershey exit) and at the next exit, Rt 39 (the second Hershey exit) there is at least two truck stops and a Perkins restaurant. Both Rts 743 and Rt 39 will take you to Hershey Park Drive where you will see signs for parking.
