October 10, 2021 (postponed from May)
at Bergen Community College (BCC) in Paramus, NJ
The North Jersey Auto Show, presented by the Restored Rusty Relics, reached 440 show cars and over 50 vendors at our last show; the swap meet included car parts, clothing, memorabilia, and food. See our writeup of the 2019 show. New: See who has pre-registered! (May be up to two weeks out of date.)
This is a classic car show, only open to vehicles from model-year 1996 and earlier. Motorcycles, trucks, imports, and emergency vehicles are welcome! There are trivia contests and music; and selected vehicles will get class trophies.*
Pre-registration is over, but you can still register your car under “late online registration,” which will end on the morning of October 8. The main difference is that with pre-registration, you will have a pre-preprinted card for your car; be confirmed on this site (see the bottom of the page); and be guaranteed a dash plaque.
The cost for showing a classic car, truck, or motorcycle on the day of the show is $25, exact change or pre-written check preferred. Late on-line registration, up to October 8, is available for $22. Late registration does not guarantee a dash plaque or come with pre-filled window cards, and may not be displayed on this page. You can only late-register online, but it is still faster, cheaper, and more convenient!
Vendors, see below.
Proceeds benefit local charities and keep the show going.
2021 Confirmed Show Sponsors
2020-2021 Trivia Contest Sponsors
Our car show is at 400 Paramus Road; enter Bergen Community College and bear right at the entrance, following our signs. Spectators can visit for $5 per person — with a maximum $10 per carload (no buses or large vans). Proceeds benefit local charities and keep the show going. The show runs from 8 am to around 3:40 pm.
Get show updates with the mailing list: If you sign up, we will let you know when pre-registration opens each year and send a reminder just before it closes. We only send around four to seven messages per year, and we don’t share or sell addresses. (We no longer have a physical mailing list, so this is the only way for us to reach you.)
All vendors had to pre-register by September 22! As of September 21, 38 vendors had pre-registered, so we should have a good flea market/swap meet!
Reminders for vendors:
- Flea market spaces are around 20’ x 20’ (they are defined as two parking-lot spaces).
- Spaces must be cleaned up completely no later than 3:40 pm on the show day.
In 2019 we brought back the “trophy parade,” where spectators watch people drive across the show field to pick up their trophies. (It was also the first time at BCC that we separated the show field into classes.) This year we will likely gather at the far end of section "C" since PSE&G is using our normal gathering place. Those chosen for awards will get a slip of paper under their wiper or on their seat.
Selected cars and their owners gather before lining up for the parade
Lining up: around forty cars, one at a time
* This event is not judged; awards are given based on factors such as unique features, condition, restoration or ownership stories, rarity, etc. Winners cannot be owned by Restored Rusty Relics members; and we try not to select winners from the past two North Jersey Auto Shows.
Car show rules
In addition to the vendor rules above
- Canopy poles must be weighted down (sorry, no stakes, even on the grass).
- No smoking—it’s a College and county rule.
- Proof of liability insurance must be supplied upon request.
- We are not responsible for show cancellation or postponements due to acts of God (e.g. natural disasters), epidemics, pandemics, or closures or cancellations mandated by the county, state, or college. We will do the best we can to reschedule or move the event in these cases. We may, at our discretion, issue full or partial refunds, or apply pre-registration payments to the next show if this is the case.
- Parking is on paved areas only, no exceptions!
- No fires anywhere on show grounds
- Day-of-show registration: 8am - noon (or until sold out, whichever is sooner)
- Proof of car liability insurance must be supplied upon request
- Main gate spectator admission: 8am - 2:00pm
- No motorized vehicles, bicycles, scooters, skateboards, etc.
- The property must be entirely clear by 3:40pm
38 vendors have signed up as of September 19, not counting three sponsors.
This list only contains pre-registrations, not late online registrations. It will be updated again by September 25 with mailed pre-registrations.
