First Reformed Church of Lincoln Park’s Annual Car Show is Major Success

On Saturday September 28th, The First Reformed Church of Lincoln Park held its 9th annual Vintage Car and Motorcycle Show Fellowship & Fundraiser event. A robust basket-auction takes place right before the trophies are handed out, and this year 95 baskets were raffled off and 22 Trophies awarded. Breakfast and Lunch are sold on premises, and DJ Nick at Night entertained the crowd and helped with all the announcements. Door prizes are awarded every 30 minutes and keeps the day lively.

The First Reformed Church is now in its 102nd year at this location on Chapel Hill Road, and the Consistory and Congregation are grateful to the neighbors and townspeople and car-show crowd who turn out every year to help. So many local businesses provide trophy sponsorship or make general donations, this event turns out to be the Church’s second biggest fundraiser each year. Sixty-five cars and motorcycles turned out on a spectacular sunny Fall day, and with the Lincoln Park Day festival just blocks away, plenty of foot traffic also was seen.

Vehicles from the 1930s to the 1990s participated and the variety was breathtaking. From 2 seat Thunderbirds to GTOs to Corvettes were seen along with vintage pickup trucks and bikes. A lovely Red & White Crown Victoria took home honors for Best-in-Show. The church thanks all the volunteers and all the car owners who participated, we are already looking forward to our 10th, next year.
