BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Residents from Berkeley Heights and neighboring towns gathered at the Berkeley Heights Fire Department’s sixth annual Hot Rods on Hamilton Car and Motorcycle Show on Sunday to see cars of various shapes and colors on display.

With their cars lined up, owners competed for awards in categories like Street Rod/Hot Rod, Mustang, Stock: Pre-1940, British Auto, Custom Truck, Un-restored/Survivor, Ford Muscle (through 1990), Camaro/Firebird, and many others.

Maurice Feigenvaum of Mountainside brought his 1956 Thunderbird, which he says is one of 316 that were made with the rare color Buckskin Tan.

“I have two other cars,” Feigenvaum said. “This is sort of my favorite one because of the color.” 

Bob Slater ofBloomfield brought a 2008 Ford Mustang Warriors in Pink Breast Cancer Awareness limited-edition car, which he says is one of 385 black coupes made. He said that for every car bought, Ford donated money to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“It’s Ford’s tribute to breast cancer,” Slater said.

Rich Margeton of Kenilworth brought his 1953 Mercury to the car show with a $30,000 custom-paint job, including flames traveling from the front to the sides of the car and a portrait of Marilyn Monroe on the trunk.
“This was here last year,” Margeton.

Margeton isn’t the only one who has participated in the fire department’s car show in the past.

“It’s a hobby,” Slater said. “I’ve been to this car show for several years before. I know a lot of people bring their cars here. It’s a social thing.”
