NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The Third Annual Car Show, organized by the New Providence PBA Local #132, was a big success this Sunday attracting sixty cars and many town residents. As dozens of classic cars glided into the parking lot behind Berkeley Aquatic, the new home of the Annual PBA Car Show, residents came out braving the misting rain to hit the food trucks, Kona Ice and look under the many hoods. Sixty classic and rare cars rolled into the parking lot including a 1946 Chevy Rat Rod Pick-up, a 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, a 1968 and 1969 Chevy Camaro, a 1956 Oldsmobile Holiday 88, a 1951 Ford Victoria Corvette and a 2019 Mustang Bullitt, to name just a few. One of the most popular was a custom build one-of-a-kind car with a 1950 Studebaker on the front and a 1951 Chevy on the back, complete with 36” wide tires.
With a DJ, food trucks and Kona Ice, the car show was a great place for town residents to have a chance to get to know many members of the New Providence Police Department and to check out the vintage and rare cars on display.
The third annual car show was sponsored by DeFalco’s Automotive and Towing, Berkeley Aquatic, Torbilt Construction, Gelormini’s Auto Repair and Salerno Duane Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge/Ford. All the proceeds will go to the New Jersey State PBA Survivor Welfare Fund.
