Christian Hutter’s stunning A11

Its official!!   The ICTA will be meeting up in August at Das Awkscht.  For 58 years, Das Awkscht Fescht has been a summer tradition for all ages. Offering three fun-packed days in the great outdoors, it’s been a perfect way for families to celebrate summer and see some of the finest antique cars from the east coast.

Members of the ICTA have been participating in this event for a least 20 years!  Long time Checker fan Don McHenry first started attending Das Awkscht pulling his antique show car with his family Checker back in the 70’s.  Purchased new in 1961, by the 1980’s Don’s trailer pulling Superba wagon ultimately became a show car too!

Through the years more Checker fans have joined the Checker fun in Pennsylvania.  Checker fans like Christian Hutter and Bruce Uhrich have made the Sunday show a significant Checker event.  Over that last three years, ICTA members have had a big impact and each year this event has increased in Checker participation. More importantly, the ICTA now dominates this event with active Checker taxicab owners.

This year the event is being run on the weekend of August 6-8th. Let’s make the Sunday August 8th event the official ICTA annual event. Like last year, we can also attend the the Saturday night Musikfest in downtown Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Musikfest is an American music festival that has been held annually in Bethlehem, since 1984, and it claims to be the nation’s largest non-gated free music festival.
