Swanky, Rare Automobile Show Coming to Colts Neck this Saturday
It's called 'Concours d'Elegance' and there are only 5 or 6 shows of its kind in America each year, so we are lucky to have it here this Saturday!
Grab your family and come to Bucks Mill Park (125 Bucks Mill Road, Colts Neck) this Saturday, Sept. 29th, for a unique automobile show and parade the likes of which you won't find anywhere else in our area. entry is $10 per person, children 12 & under are free. The event opens at 10 am and the parade will take place at 2:30 pm. The field closes at 4 pm.
This auto show features pristine vintage autos of bygone eras from the private collections of some pretty awesome people who are willing to share their automobiles in public for you to see.
This is a super cool event and unlike the 'regular' car shows you usually see.
Ralph Marano has been a dedicated collector and contributor to the classic car hobby for the last 40 years. He has been collecting mostly Packards for over 30 years. No car in his collection was mass produced and several are limited to small production. He also has the only collection of every Packard Prototype except one, because that one is on display in the Studebaker Museum.
His Darrin collection is unique as Ralph owns one of every year from 1937-1942 including Dutch Darrin's Darrin. Although Packards are truly Ralph's first love, he also has several other marques such as Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg, Ford Hot Rods, Mercury and some unusual Cadillacs, which are one-offs.
If you appreciate the finer things in life, check out this unique experience to attend a "Concours D'Elegance." Concours D' Elegance translated from french literally means a competition of elegance. This unique event attracts collectors of pristine automobiles from far and wide.
After a public showing and judging inspections, the Concours Grand Finale takes place, where the winning automobiles are paraded down "Victory Lane" to the applause of spectators.
A fun day for the whole family and an experience not to be missed. In addition to enjoying the classic motorcars on display, guests can visit onsite food trucks and other vendors.
