This was the 12th annual Orchard Beach Car Show, dedicated to raising money for the NYPD 9-11 Widows and Orphans fund. The turnout, despite $4.00/gal and higher gasoline prices, was robust to say the least, with a mix of customs, stock antique, modern iron, and good contingent of Motorcycles. In addition to the vehicles on display, as has been the case since the inception of this Show, there were a number of celebrities on hand from the sports world, movies, and TV.
Despite threatening clouds, the in the series of five Metuchen NJ Downtown Cruise Nights took place. The turnout was good, with a variety of classics and Hotrods lining Main St from Penn Ave, down to within a block of Middlesex Ave.
