RIVER EDGE, N.J. -- The 16th annual River Edge Car Show is coming to Continental Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday July 10.
More than 225 classic cars will be on display, spanning the decades from 1920 through the present. The show is hosted by the River Edge Cultural Center.
One of the featured autos will be a 1990 Volkswagon Cabriolet that has been converted to an electric car. The functioning vehicle was transformed by Ron Grosinger, auto shop teacher at Memorial High School in West New York, with the assistance of some of his students. Capable of traveling up to 40 miles on a full charge, the car can reach speeds of up to 70 mph. Grosinger will be on hand to discuss details of his project.
There also will be DJ music, refreshments, vendors and space for new model display cars. Goody bags, including dash plaques, will be given to all entrants while photographs are snapped at the gala.
Near the end of the free show, about 50 trophies will be awarded in several categories.
Registration forms for vintage car owners and can be downloaded here . Advanced registration received before June 30 is $15. The fee afterward is $20.
