SUMMIT, NJ - Downtown Summit was bustling with classic cars and thousands of people on Sunday morning for the 16th Annual Summit Antique/Classic Car Show, sponsored by Summit Downtown, Inc.

Owren explained that the car show helps draw business to downtown Summit.  “We have the car show because we (Summit Downtown Inc.) support economic vitality of downtown and we want to keep it going strong,” Owren said.

First place winner for Class 5 (cars between 1970-present), Phil Montouri, was a proud owner of his 1973 Javelin AMX. 

“I’ve been coming here for the last ten years and this is the first time I’ve ever own,” Montouri said.  “I never win anything, I’m in shock!”

Montouri added that he loves coming every year, not just for the cars, but also because he gets to see many people he knows since he used to be a Summit resident.

The proud winner said he didn’t do anything differently this year he “just spent a lot of time detailing and cleaning it”.

Summit residents Tom Pryma and his son, Jack, were first time car show attendees and participants.  They won second place in Class 4 (cars between 1963-1969) with their 1967 Austin Healey. 

“It was so much fun, I’m going to put the trophy in my room,” Jack said. 

His father added that they woke up at 6AM to polish their award-winning car.  “We will definitely attend next year,” Pryma said.

Major sponsors of the car show included Maplecrest Auto Group, Smythe Volvo, Hilltop Community Bank and Investors Bank.
