Wildwood Boardwalk Classic Car Show Photos September 2008: Part 1  

3 comments


I attended the 15th Annual Boardwalk Classic Car Show in Wildwood last week. Great weather and lots of cars. There were hundreds of cars on display on the boardwalk, but there were even more just cruising around all weekend.

The show is limited to 1983 and older, which seems to coincide with New Jersey's definition of an antique: 25 years or older. I believe the Spring show is open to all years, so they offer a chance for everyone to participate.

The best part of the weekend is actually at night. There are hot rods and muscle cars just cruising the streets, trying to sneak in burnouts when the police aren't around. Hanging around on the corner of Ocean Ave. and Rio Grande on Saturday night brings you back about 35 years to the heyday of the muscle car era.

Here are some of my favorites:

1975 or 1976 Chevrolet Laguna S-3. I don't know enough to tell the two years apart. Feel free to comment if you know. Super clean.


1968 Chevrolet Impala. Straight Six.


1977 Pontiac Trans Am. I had a silver one in college. Shoulda kept it.


1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. This one's for 3wide.




1954 Chevy Wagon 2 door. I've never seen a 1954 Chevy wagon, let alone a 2 door. This thing is kewl and rare. You'll never have to worry about seeing another one at the local cruise night.




Vega wagon. Had to include it.


The Mystery Machine. Zoinks! My kids loved this thing.


T-bucket, driver quality, for sale for $7500




















What next?

    I'd probably a "T-Type" or two that I have for that 71 Monte! Maybe even drag the old 69 Project Car out of the garage too!

    Opps... Meant to say:
    I'd probably TRADE a "T-Type" or two that I have for that 71 Monte! Maybe even drag the old 69 Project Car out of the garage too!

    I know they don't have the collectability of a Camaro or a Chevelle, but because of it, you just don't see many nice ones around anymore...

    Hi I was searching for an article and I saw this blog come up. This is very nice, but I just wanted to let you know that the 54 wagon in the pictures is mine. It is actually a 54 Chevy Sedan Delivery, not a wagon. Thank you for the description though I appreciate it!
