Vehicles are used for a myriad of purposes. They can be utilized as a daily driver to get us to and from work, others for sport or pure enjoyment. The vehicles featured in this exhibit were all created with a specific purpose in mind. Milton S. Hershey in his early days as a candy maker had one of the first vehicles in Central Pennsylvania, using it to sell his candy. Maybe you remember those days when the milkman would deliver fresh milk door to door or the lively bell on the ice cream truck in your neighborhood during the summer. Our next exhibit focuses on these working vehicles; those employed to get the job done, whatever that job might be!

Our featured vehicles in this exhibit include 2 fire trucks, police cars & a California Highway Patrol motorcycle, a Good Humor Ice Cream truck, a milk truck, a banana truck, a Mexican taxi, REO funeral hearse and more! We also have a 1960 Imperial Crown Limousine special-ordered for New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and Whitney Houston's first limousine, a 1986 Rolls-Royce.
These vehicles are all very different in size, shape, purpose, and range in age from a 1913 furniture delivery truck to a 1992 Mexican VW Beetle Taxi. In total this display is made up of about two dozen vehicles that will deliver a diverse experience for all ages and interests.
