PAA celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2019.  Each dealership is an integral part of the PAA story as so many generations of dealers have been active PAA members.

The PAA Story

Throughout the years, car dealers with their love of selling automobiles, played a key role in the success of the automotive industry and in the shaping of Pennsylvania's communities.  PAA and its dealer members have experienced many major milestones over the past 100 years. The PAA Story was printed in a hardback, commemorative book and provided to each dealership in Pennsylvania.  It contained pictures submitted by dealerships across the state and celebrated the many leaders who shaped the association.
