Microcars in Boonton, New Jersey (August 9, 2008)

The following is a note sent in by Rob Maselko -- giving us a "heads-up" on an upcoming car show in New Jersey. Microcars are welcome, and made a good showing at last year's show:

Last year a group of us attended the Boonton, New Jersey "Main Street" car show, and were surprised to find ourselves in the middle of an excellent show. Starting at 4PM, they close off Main Street to normal traffic, and open it for show cars. In case you haven't been there, downtown Boonton is full of wonderful quaint old shops and a variety of restaurants. Most of the buildings date back to the turn of the last century or before. The setting is perfect for viewing old cars, and the variety and quality that show up is impressive.

The 6 microcars in attendance last year were a big hit. The show organizers gave us prime parking, front and center, across from the judges' reviewing stand. Attendees get coupons for the local restaurants, so after taking-in cars for a while, you can enjoy a fine meal before the awards are announced.

I'm planning to show the Trojan 200 bubblecar there for the first time in 8 years (this gives me a deadline to repair it by), and I'm hoping you will join me! See attached flyer for details and registration information.

On One Cylinder,
