The Hershey Region Fall Swap meet combines an antique car show with a massive flea market. Visitors and collectors can purchase items ranging from antique neon signs and glass gas globes to hard to find car parts sometimes in original packaging. Flea market vendors may also have items such as boats, old toys, pedal cars, milk wagons and even airplane parts.

An article on Caranddriver.com reports that over the years, swap meet merchandise has shifted away from heavy metal parts to focus more on memorabilia. However, collectors can find multiple stalls selling door handles, window cranks and license plates. In addition, there are specific vendors for individual car brands such as Ford, Edsel or Dusenberg. Swap meet attendees can find motorcycles, scooters, old tractors and old race cars.

Billed as the world's largest old car flea market, the Antique Automobile Club of America's Hershey Fall Meet takes place the first full week in October. It began in 1955, and is a continuing yearly tradition which has more than 9,000 flea market stalls, over 1,000 car spaces and approximately 1,500 show cars.
