It's Hershey Week!!! As we prepare for our short journey west to the AACA Eastern Fall Nationals, things are busy here at The NB Center! Along with showing a handful of cars competing for their Senior Awards, we will be debuting our latest restoration effort. Here are a few tease shots of this somewhat unusual gem of automotive history. You'll have to come to Hershey to see the final product, and it is definitely worth seeing. And just a friendly reminder that The NB Center is not open for public tours. But we do hope you stop and say hello on the field at Hershey on Saturday!

Let the guessing begin!!

Allentown's America on Wheels museum on Thursday welcomed the famed Ferrari replica from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” the classic 1986 comedy starring Matthew Broderick as the titular, high school-ditching teenager. The car will be on display in the museum's lobby through late September.

The NB Center for American Automotive Heritage in Pennsylvania is an institution dedicated to preserving America's automotive heritage through its commitment to craftsmanship, education, and good stewardship.

Created by Nicola Bulgari, curated by Keith Flickinger and the restoration process managed by Kris Flickinger, The NB Center saves, preserves and restores many of the "every-day-cars" that put America on wheels from the early 1920s to the late 1950s.

A lot of those marques no longer exist and have mostly been forgotten. Other brands that built cars in great numbers still exist but many of these models have all but disappeared. Because these vehicles were so available, they were not deemed valuable at the time.

Among its many endeavors, The NB Center works to emphasize the historical and societal relevance of these vehicles through its active partnerships with schools of all levels.

By preserving for posterity the cars that changed the lives of millions of Americans over generations, the NB Center does an immeasurable service for the socio-cultural heritage of the United States.

We look forward to delving further into the projects of The NB Center, in future episodes of this exclusive web-series exclusively on www.carculture.tv. Check out www.carculture.tv and subscribe.
