Hi All
All the local stars were out at one of the grand gala events for the Central Jersey hot rod scene... one of the rare and wonderful Fossil Cruises! Held in Jackson, NJ., in the Jackson High School parking lot, the show was a blast! Over 300 cars were in attendance, and over 50 trophies were awarded from participating local sponsors to the “Best of Show”.  DJ Wolfman Jerry was spinning classic car tunes (including the infamous 8 minute(!) version of “Hot Rod Lincoln”... where there are imitations of over 20 other artists built in the song), and giving a commentary in that lovely scratchy voice that makes him second generation Wolf. A crazy Chinese auction/tricky trade was held as well, featuring lots of killer items such as a minim jukebox alarm clock, gift baskets, and tickets to the Green Flag race car driving experience donated by radio personality and Wall Stadium announcer Jeff Gravatt (yours truly’s father!... ha ha free press). What really made the day, however, was the super-keen contests they had... best chop-top, longest distance driven to the show, best club banner, best flames, and many more. They even had a muffler rapping contest, during which an unfortunate participant blew a transmission seal! But it was all in good fun, hehe.  At the end of the day we were all tired but thoroughly satisfied as we walked away with our real marble-based (!) trophies.  The one negative thing, when I applied my sunscreen, I forgot about my back. Whoops!  Now I’m as red as a lobster, and as sore as one in a pot of boiling water! Ah, c’est la vie.  Well, that’s all for now... but stay tuned for more NJ car shenanigans in the near future (I won’t leave you hanging).  This is Sara Scalper in Central Jersey, over and out!
