North Jersey Auto Show

41st Annual North Jersey Auto Show:
Sunday, May 19, 2019

at Bergen Community College in Paramus, NJ
Pre-registration is now open!


The next North Jersey Auto Show is slated for May 19, 2019, at Bergen Community College in Paramus, convenient to Route 4 and 17. We expect hundreds of cars and eighty vendors selling car parts, clothing, collectibles, memorabilia, breakfast, and lunch.

The 2018 show had more trophy classes, and included cars up to the 1993s. The show times were 8 am through 3 pm; please do not come before 8 am! Arrivals after 11 am may not be eligible for selection. We expect to keep the number of classes and the show times.

All pre-registered cars, and the first cars to show up, will get dash plaques; there will also be trivia contests and a DJ playing music.

The show is only open to vehicles from model-year 1994 and earlier. Motorcycles are welcome! There is free pre-registration by mail for 1927 and older cars, and for 1994 cars, since it’s the first year of their classic-car status. (The mail form will be available later on.)

Pre-register online for just $15 per car (before May 1)

Pre-registering will add you to a mailing list for roughly four reminders per year. You can leave this list at any time with a single click, or by writing to us.

Year and brand (e.g., 1910 Brush)
Your car model (e.g., Duster)
Your phone (optional)

We will be adding a downloadable form if you prefer to register by mail, or if you have a pre-1928 car, or if you have a 1994 car (to celebrate the first year of your classic-car status).

The mailing list

If you sign up for the mailing list using this form, we will let you know when pre-registration opens each year. (We send around four or five messages per year and don’t share the list with anyone else, so you won’t get deluged by our emails). We’ll see you there!

We do not share our list, and restrict mailings to six updates per year

About award selection

We do not have formal judging, per se, but selection by volunteers based on the criteria for various memorial awards. In recent years, we have had two awards per major decade and for various types of vehicle to make sure awards went to cars of all years and types — that there was an even distribution of awards representative of the cars entered. We have roughly two hours to select all the cars to receive awards; thoroughly inspecting each car in this limited time is impossible, but the volunteers do their best to be fair. Restored Rusty Relics members are not eligible for any awards.
