PILESGROVE, NJ, April 30th- The Salem County Vocational Technical High School (SCVTS) held its 2nd annual Classic Car Show yesterday on the school’s front lawns from 10 am until 3 pm.  Dozens of proud owners signed up to show off, and their vintage vehicles attracted many mesmerized viewers.

There were Corvettes, Chargers, Cadillacs, and everything in between. 189 people displayed their sets of wheels at the show and over 250 people came to observe.  The show was a great triumph for SCVTS profit wise, and all of the proceeds went towards the career and technical shop education classes.

“The car show was a good way to bring the people of Salem County together, for a good cause: the students,” said Dr. Meggin Wentzell, SCVTS’ assistant principal.

18 trophies were awarded yesterday to lucky car owners, ranging from “Most Unique” to “Best in Show.”

The event not only exhibited vehicles, but also offered $5 haircuts by the school’s cosmetology department and building tours by the school’s ROTC academy.  There were vendors, yard sales, fundraisers, and even a Chinese auction as well.

Due to the event’s success, SCVTS is already planning on holding a 3rd annual Classic Car Show this time next year.  

“The car show is working its way towards being a yearly tradition,” said Wentzell.
