  • Manasquan NJ Inlet, Car Show

    Went to a car show Tues near the ocean,
    right next to the Manasquan inlet in NJ.

    (Riverside Drive, in this view)!4d-74.033192

    Only about 62 cars, so small by most standards
    around here, but many higher quality cars. One
    of the few shows around that pre-registration is required.
    Anyway, pretty good Bird representation (4 out of 62).

    Woman who owned this blue flair was gauging interest
    for a NJ specific T-bird club. That would be kind of
    cool to invade car shows with 20 or so birds every
    now and again.

    and me

    Some other vehicles I liked.

    and a fire truck I was looking over, mostly the engine.
    Has 3-4 spark plugs per cyl. All but one plug runs off
    two magnetos. But there is one set that runs off a
    separate distributor near rear of engine.

    I asked the owner, why the separate distributor, but he
    did not know. He claims he starts and runs it off all "3 banks".

    He did have the original instruction manuals and I leafed through them
    to find out, the distributor only setup, was
    for emergencies, if you had weak batteries. So we both
    learned something new.

    And finally, after hanging out late, near the ice cream shop, a buddy clicked this night shot right as I was leaving.

    Nice variety of cars, my wife had a black '62 Fairlane a few years back only it was a 4-door - and the steering wheel was on the other side.
