Edison. NJ McDonalds to Howell, NJ Chik-Fil-A
The 2019 NJ Trans Am/All Pontiac Run drew 20 participants, and all but three made the whole trip from Edison to Howell New Jersey Chik-Fil-A, our host and destination for this year’s Run. The weather was as good as one gets in July, with a high near 90 degrees, but fortunately without oppressive humidity, which pleased both the vehicles, and their owners.
While we did hit a small traffic jam getting on to Rt 195 east from the New Jersey Turnpike, as the non-car people fascinated themselves with a roadside Tire change, which backed traffic up from a point just as we got on to Rte. 195 east, back to the NJ Turnpike Toll Plaza. Once past the roadside entertainment for the non-car people, it was smooth sailing all the way to our destination.
The folks at Chik-Fil-A outdid themselves, not only did they throw in a Chunk Chocolate Cookie with each Run participant’s food order, but they even coned off the lower Parking Lot for our participants.
After allowing about an hour for everyone to settle in, eat, and hang out a bit, the winners for “Best Trans Am/Firebird”, and “Best Pontiac” were called. The “Best Trans Am/Firebird” Trophy went to a semi customized 1978 Black and Gold Trans Am, and the “Best Pontiac” Trophy went to a dark Green 1966? G.T.O.
Once the Trophies were awarded there was a FREE Raffle, to distribute some giveaway items to six lucky winners.
With the Trophies awarded, and free Raffle concluded, everyone headed home
See you all again next year.
