Jackson Outlet Cruise Night: August 29, 2008  


Last night I attended the Jackson Outlet Cruise Night, located at the Jackson Premium Outlets in Jackson, NJ, for the first time this year. With literally hundreds of cars, and plenty of atmosphere, I really enjoyed the event. This event is run by a car club called The Fossils of South Jersey.

At this show you get just what the name of the car club implies. Lots of old cars, some very friendly people, and a few grouchy old men who just want everything to be the way it was when they were growing up. After all, the show is limited to pre-1975 American made cars. How about the guy with the with the bright green T-shirt that reads, "What part of 1974 and older and American made don't your understand?" or something to that effect. Geez.

Anyway, on to the cars. Here are a few that really caught my interest for one reason or another.

1969 or 1970 Shelby GT 500

Not sure of the year, but this was a super clean example. The engine compartment is absolutely beautiful, with what appears to be a mechanical fuel injection system installed.

1932 Ford Coupe

I like the wheels, the paint, just an overall great look. I particularly like the flame job.

1965 or 1966 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport

This car has a great look. Super straight with black paint, slammed to the ground. Wheel choice is just about perfect for my tastes. I spoke briefly with the owner, who told me the car had an Air Ride suspension that allowed him to raise and lower the car at will. The Air Ride systems are expensive, but allow you to have a great handling ride, practical street use, and that slammed look when parked. Kewl.

1932 Ford Roadster

Here's a 32 Roadster with the full fendered look. Clean and classic.

I have a few more, but I'm out of time for now, so I'll create another post for the rest.

What next?
