“We are thrilled to be returning for a second year as sponsor of the 55th New Hope Automobile Show,” said Mike Pallardy, Porsche Area East Vice President.“Last year the show was a huge success thanks to all the efforts of the many volunteers and organizers. It’s gratifying to know that we’ve helped contribute to academic scholarships for many young students in the New Hope-Solebury community.”
Deborah Lang, committee member of the Auto Show further commented, “Having Porsche as our presenting sponsor for another year is a huge honor for everyone involved in the show. Last year, the Porsche tent was a highlight for all attendees and we can expect even more surprises from them.”
This year, the Auto Show will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Chevrolet. The collectible auto show poster features a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad photographed by renowned photographer Michael Furman.
Not only does the New Hope Auto Show feature the finest in classic and antique vehicles, but it also gives out awards for first, second and third place in more than 50 categories. All vehicles entered must be judge-ready. At the end of each day, a parade of champions takes place with all of the winners of each category.
The New Hope Automobile Show continues the tradition of providing educational scholarships for students at New Hope-Solebury High School and several civic groups in the region including local sports clubs (baseball, soccer, football), emergency squads and firehouses. For 2011, the show donated several thousand dollars in scholarships as part of the New Hope-Solebury Community Association.
