Remembering

Auto production is halted during WWII

Today, I am speaking to my friend Mr. Eric Eberhardt who is president of one of the oldest independent automobile dealers in the Lehigh Valley. Eberhardt Motors is observing its 90th anniversary at its Egypt, Whitehall Township location.

We will be returning to World War II and how it affected the nation, the automobile industry and the Eberhardt family. Eric's grandfather was operating the dealership at that time, then called T.F. Eberhardt & Co.
