Years ago, the Ridgewood Car Show would've been packed with muscle cars. Now you can find some absolutely stunning European classics there.
Last time I attended this event I was a braces faced teen, and American muscle was dominant. This time, I was camera-faced and there was quite marvelous variation, including some sleek European classics.
This Alfa immediately caught my eye. It's basically perfect with the bulging fenders and exposed rivets. It would be hard for me not to play rally driver everywhere I went in that thing.
The interior was so minty. And such tasteful upgrades, someone put a lot of love into this car, and it all looks quite functional. I spent far too much time ogling this beauty.
Such an eclectic gathering, it's a great thing when a van, a Ford GT, and a Porsche 911 can be parked in a row and all admired equally.
The light was also perfect, a bit of evening sun just kissing the well polished curves of so many classic and contemporary machines, alright maybe I was getting a bit too romantic, but damn.
It was also great to see tons of families with kids who were SO EXCITED to check the cars out. Seeing a budding enthusiast's eyes pop at the sight and sound of a Dodge Charger with a supercharger and intakes popping out of the hood makes my day. Holy hell does that look like a tire slayer.
I was really digging the color on this BMW 3.0, and the fact that it was nose to tail with a Testarossa.
And there was an Alfa Montreal.
There was also some weird sort of malaise-muscle, like this Hurst/Olds. It's so terrible, it just might be awesome. I can't quite tell.
And this F-Type, sitting so pretty in the sun. A local dealer showed up with a few new cars, but the show is still predominantly classic.
There's a whole lot more in the full album HERE
