The 41st annual North Jersey Auto Show took place on May 19, 2019 at Bergen Community College in Paramus, near Routes 4 and 17. We had over 400 cars, along with so many vendors selling car parts, clothing, collectibles, memorabilia, and food that we ran out of space, even after designating an overflow area.



This year was the first time since leaving Upper Saddle River that we were able to do a “trophy parade,” where spectators got to watch people drive across the show field to pick up their trophies, in the cars that merited the awards. (It was also the first time at BCC that we separated the show field into classes.)

About award selection

We do not have formal judging, per se; volunteers select cars to win trophies 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.
