16th Annual East Coast Boardwalk National Car Show Wildwood – New Jersey – May 8-11, 2008

The 16th Annual East Coast Boardwalk National Car Show is May 8-11, 2008. If you looking to stay the weekend you better get on the horn with the hotels cause this is looking to be a good sized event. Word on the street is hat you can expect to see more imports and trucks this year due to loosening of the rules.

Looking for hotels?  Then go here for more info.

Now we do have this on good authority, if your planning to hit the streets and act like a squirrel, you will be caught, ticketed and you might even loose your car. Remember the rule, be cool! Wildwood is letting a great event happen and there has to be some respect shown for the town and police. You know its only the non event participating idiots that think Atlantic & Pacific are a race track.

After speaking to the event people there is a good feeling that the recent gas prices should hurt this event, so fill up the Duce or the 57 Chevy with some 94 Sunoco and come on down to one of the best darned car shows in the tri state area!

Also dont forget to plan ahead for the 15th Annual East Coast Boardwalk Classic Car Show on September 18-21, 2008. Great news is that the Classic Auction will return in the fall so bring the checkbook and tell the wife your fishing cause theres a Tri-Power 67 Vette waiting for you.
