I'll be the first to admit that I know nothing about cars.

The depth of my knowledge is as follows:

  • Driving a Stick
  • Changing my headlight bulbs
  • Checking the dipstick

But, just because you don't know much about cars doesn't mean you can't appreciate looking at classic cars!

When I first moved to Ocean County, I stumbled upon a really cool classic car show in downtown Toms River that occurs the second Wednesday of each month June through September.

There were a ton of classic cars not only showcased but that were also for sale, so if you're a collector maybe think about swinging by!

To me, classic car shows just scream summer.

If I can go to a car show that also supports a good cause, well that's just icing on the cake.

Mark your calendar for August 20th, because there's a great event making its way to Ocean County.

The 8th Annual Brick PAL Car Show and BBQ

Rev your engines, and bring an appetite because this is going to be a fun day!

If you have a classic car that you're looking to register for shows, this is a great way to get started; it's $15 in advance and $20 day of to register your vehicle, according to Patch.com

Vehicles have to be at least 25 years old, and you can register by emailing an application to I and E insurance at ineagency@gmail.com or by calling 732-295-5584 and asking for Ernest

Be quick though, registration is only open until August 10th and is limited to 120 vehicles.

If you plan on attending, you're in for a treat.

In addition to the classic cars, there will be raffles, BBQ (which is the best type of food), and a bunch more great stuff!

The event runs from 10 am to 2 pm on August 20th, and all proceeds go to benefit the Brick PAL.

What is the Brick PAL?

The Brick Police Athletic League is an organization whose main goal is to provide programs and activities designed to keep kids off the street.

According to Oceanresource.net they organize boxing classes, zumba, science patrol, and a lot more.

Here are a few other Classic Cars that I've run into over the years!
