Opening Gala 3-8 p.m. at the Herb Singes' Antique Car, Motorcycle and Automobilia Museum in Hillside, NJ, 5 minutes west of Newark Airport and 20 miles / 25 minutes southeast of the meet. Experience this 16,000+ sq. ft. accumulation that has taken two dedicated collectors over 120 cumulative years of collecting to assemble.
Enjoy a full 3 course hot and cold sit down buffet dinner, compliments of JC Taylor Antique Auto Insurance and the Singe family right within the collection. Doors open at 3 p.m. with dinner served starting approximately 5:30 until 7:30 pm. In addition to HCCA members, AACA members will also be in attendance on a pay as you go basis.
*It is anticipated that those HCCA members who attend Friday night's gala will participate in Saturday's car show.
Saturday: Parsippany, NJ
Saturday's Event is an old-time Brass Era Car Show in conjunction with the AACA Eastern Spring National (Meet) at the Hilton Parsippany, 1 Hilton Ct Parsippany NJ 07054
The HCCA Brass Era cars will have our own display area within the AACA show field. No judging of HCCA cars, of course, but lots of socializing, a few "car games" (hopefully) like at the field meets in the first years of our hobby and almost a century's worth of cars from the brass era (HCCA) up through the early 1990's (AACA) to look over and admire. Those HCCA members who wish to have their cars judged by the AACA, should register their vehicle with the AACA meet registrar (deadline May 26, 2019). HCCA members who display their vehicles in the HCCA Brass Era Car Show will receive a complementary picnic lunch, courtesy of the Singe family.
Arrive 7-11 a.m. and stay as long as you desire throughout the afternoon.
Sunday: Southeastern Morris and Northeastern Somerset Counties, NJ
The North Jersey Region will hold its traditional "Run Around the Mountain" one day tour. This 50 - 60 mile tour and adventure throughout the good roads of lovely semi-rural Morris and Somerset Counties will kick off Sunday morning from the Whippany / Parsippany area, in close proximity to the previous days show.
Our tour will be easily mastered by strong 1 & 2 cylinder and all 4 & 6 cylinder brass era vehicles, with stops along the way at two private brass era car collections. A complimentary gourmet barbeque luncheon will be provided to all tourists at the New Jersey Live Steamers, in Basking Ridge, NJ, where we can see and ride on their miniature steam trains and give their engineers rides in our brass era cars. We should return to our jumping off point (and trailers) by mid-afternoon, allowing plenty of time for most participants to return home.
Free, overnight, outdoor, security supervised parking for HCCA member's brass era cars and trailers is available on Friday and Saturday nights adjacent to the Hilton AACA host hotel. AACA members pay $25/night. RV parking (no hookups) is available at the trailer parking area (possible charge). Complementary trailer parking is available to guests of America's Best Value Inn Hotel.
