Long Branch Rev'ed up - Car Show Cruise
Long Branch: The 18th Annual Cruise To The Jersey Shore Car Show began in the wee hours of Sunday morning as a 1930 Model A Ford Coupe Convertible, a 1948 Chrysler Town and Country wood paneled station wagon, and a 1938 Plymouth Sedan – a “Miss Daisy” replica made their way among similar vehicles to the viewing spots along the boardwalk and on the Great Lawn. More than 500 cars were on display for this year’s show, a delight to promoter Barry Stein from the City’s development offices. “We had to turn late comers away for public safety reasons,” Stein explained.
A full compliment of fire equipment was in tow for the show. Check out the photos of LBFD’s 1880 Hose Reel from Atlantic Engine and Truck; the Hand Drawn Hose Reel from Neptune Hose No.1; and the 1880 Self-Acting Engine from Oceanic Engine and Truck.
The RB Express band played their excellent crowd pleaser music to a full complement of fans at the Great Lawn stage. Rooney’s Restaurant was going full speed with his new open porch dining tables filled with happy guests. ...And the beaches were open with families enjoying and celebrating Father’s Day.
