Sports cars climb Hyner Mountain


The road up Hyner Mountain was closed to every vehicle except sports cars on Saturday, Oct. 17, 1959, and sports cars filled the road end to end at the approaches to a course set apart for their special climb up it. Among the people in the photo are State Police Trooper Don Harter, in uniform; Chuck Stein, at right; Edna Hemmerly, a nurse on the Renovo Hospital staff, standing in the background with her daughter. Another name on the back of the photo is Del Coslett, but it is not clear who that is. Anyone with more information about this photo is asked to contact Wendy Stiver at The Express by phoning 570-748-6791 or sending an email to
