BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Saturday was a picture perfect day for car enthusiasts to motor through Berkeley Heights for the Car Show organized by Steven Guastamacchia, the community driven owner of Yogoccino.
Guastamacchia teamed up with Jim Delia, President of Mt. Carmel Society, for the right venue [56 River Road] to hold the car show that brought in 100 plus sports cars and enthusiasts.
The "Cars and Croissants" Car Show was started with a couple of friends getting a cup of coffee for a casual affair said Abi Singh, founder of the event. This is the fifth year the growing group of car "hobbyists" have been getting together. They meet every two weeks alternating Saturdays and Sundays for this free event.
Guastamacchia and his staff were serving a menu of breakfast items and coffee for the guests.
Tony Arturo and Andrew Sepe participate in most shows. "Car nuts get out to hang out," said Sepe. "Everyone is really friendly."
You'll see Lamborghinis and everything between. "I like the variety," said Sepe. "We have had everything show up at these shows."
The first ever Daytona brought to the United States was present. This car, worth $17,000 when introduced in the 1970s, is now worth upwards to $400,000 said Arturo.
"Literally a car that is just released, and someone will have it here," said Sepe.
The car show will be returning to Berkeley Heights in July and August said Guastamacchia.
