2016: The Ninth Annual NJ Allpar Show and Meet

row of cars

Teterboro Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram hosted our ninth annual New Jersey show-and-meet on September 17, 2016. Exactly sixty cars showed up, a new record for the show. They ranged from a new Hellcat Challenger to a 1939 Chrysler Royal, and included a fine 1952 Power Wagon, 1957 Belvedere, and Teterboro owner Sal Ancito’s pristine 1959 Fury convertible.

We had a cookout, some giveaways, a 50/50 raffle for the National Military Family Association (with $45 going to the NMFA), and Pete Doll acted as the DJ, with numerous trivia questions, each of which came with a prize to the first correct answer. The show was sponsored by the National Chrysler Products Club (Skylands Region).

Everyone who registered got a ticket for the giveaways — a $25 gift certificate from Rock Auto, a limited-edition Dodge M4S poster, a case of 5W20 synthetic oil, and three Allpar mugs. Those who got the trivia questions right were awarded an Allpar mug or a Jegs’ hat.


This was one of the best run Allpar shows, and for that we have to thank the volunteers and the dealership. First, the volunteers:


No car show is complete without cars, and I really have to thank all the people who cleaned, polished, and drove their cars in. We had a very good selection this year, with muscle, vintage, classic, and modern cars and trucks all shown, from 1939 Chrysler Royal to 2016 Challenger Hellcat. I wished we had more trophies to give out, because there were cars (and owners) I really thought deserved recognition, including that green Challenger shown above.

A quick word of explanation: the webmaster’s choice was made based on a small group of finalists provided by the judges, and relied heavily on the owner’s story as well as the car itself. The Voter’s Choice award was given first, and the judges chose trophy winners afterwards. Cars entered by the judges, volunteer, and dealership staff were not eligible.


The show ran surprisingly smoothly, even though the dealership was open for business that day (which attracted some spectators). Mechanics entered a Jeep Wrangler and a pristine Plymouth Fury; the dealership manager entered co-owner Sal Ancito’s 1959 Plymouth Fury. The dealership did a fine job of clearing out over 60 cars from their lot to make room, leaving a completely empty space for the show cars.
