In September 1970, the Vintage Automobile Club of Ocean County was officially recognized by the New Jersey State Assembly as being a non profit corporation. In September, 1980, the Club held its first annual antique car show and flea market. In keeping with its ideology of community service, this first show and each subsequent show was used to raise money for local charities. From the original 12 members of the Club, the membership has consistently fluctuated from 110 and 130 members. At last count, there are nearly 300 club members including spouses.
In their car show cars are not divided into classes, which allow friends who drive different types of cars to park together. They will even hold spaces for your friends. If you let them know a day in advance, they can also reserve space for your entire club. The owner does not have to be with the car during judging. They do ask that the hood be left open so judges can view under it. Trunks need not be open and convertibles tops need not be in the up position. Windows need not be rolled up. They award over 80 trophies each year and that does not include the trophies for Best Pre War, Best Post War, and Best Work in Progress, Rusty Bucket and Oldest Car. They do not give a Longest Distance Award.
Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey, just as the club would be run as a non profit, educational and community minded entity. They are not simply planning to build an old car parking lot. Their plan is to put together an automotive heritage and preservation program. Plans for the museum include programs to enrich the lives of students of all grade levels. The automobile is an extraordinarily rich object, embracing science, mathematics, history, foreign languages, aesthetics and civil and social issues. Students, scouts, community groups and special audiences are benefit from their programs.
