   Did you know that the Studebaker Corp. in 1927 to 1930 did all their endurance an speed testing under AAA supervision at the Atlantic City speedway at Amatol NJ? These tests were for 24 HRS the big one was for 16 days night and day four cars circled the board track until each had logged 25000 miles. The average speed 65 mph.

 A little history for the web site, sent to us from  Ed Brown.

Early, Vintage Photos of Harry Fleming

By Raycer 27

        Most all of us watched and enjoyed the American Pickers TV show, starring Harry Fleming. Usually Harry is not very comfortable around cameras, or so he says he's not. I remember the first time I came to the Pumpkin Run and I hadn't seen Harry in over 35 years and I started snapping a bunch of candid shots of him, when he told me if I didn't stop taking pictures he was going to do bad things to my camera, joking of course......I think.

Harry handled the TV show like he'd done 100 episodes and I hope that Mike and Frank will make a return visit the next time they're in Jersey. Right now, we are going to show you a couple of photos of Harry in his younger days, thanks to Tom Flanagan, who was kind enough to share these rare photos with us. We're even displaying the notes and signatures which were written of the back of the pictures, enjoy folks.
