| Now in its 52nd year, the New Hope Automobile Show has long been one of the best car shows local to the eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey areas. For the last several years, the show has been held at the New Hope-Solebury High School in New Hope, PA. Even with fewer cars and shrinking levels of attendance, the show has maintained a tradition of gathering some of the finest cars around. The vast majority of attending vehicles are from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, but the quality of machinery far exceeds the standards of a grassroots local show.
Now, that's not to say that New Hope isn't a grassroots local show. Organizers are from the nearby area, and, with a wide range of vendors selling household items and services often far outside the realms of the automobile, the event has become as much a community get-together as a prestigious car show. But the long history of New Hope's annual event has given it the chance to develop further than most other regional shows.
Spread out over two days, New Hope offers a wide variety of automobiles. From a 1904 curved dash Oldsmobile to the brand new cars displayed by the area's premium dealerships, New Hope provides show goers with the chance to see the evolution of the car industry over more than a century.
The town of New Hope has a plethora of talented craftspeople. All of them are artists, and they have given their neighborhood a colorful personality. Being held in such an artistic area, it seems only natural that the posters and banners of the New Hope show are famous for their aesthetic refinement. New Hope's signature poster involves a well-lit and beautifully photographed feature car leaping out of an all-black background. This year's poster followed the same theme, and featured the lovely 1954 Plymouth Belmont in blood red.
