Thank you to all who made the RJC Charities Car Show (proceeds to Darren McCaughey) a success!  Thank you to Bob & Rosie Caramella for putting the event together, and for the Flemington Department Store for hosting the event.

Special thanks to those who brought out their street cars, and those who brought out their race cars for display.  Thank you also to the folks that offered up items for the silent auction, where folks were able to purchase tickets which they could then place next to the items that they hoped they could win.  Some folks went home with some very nice items... and most importantly, all was for a great cause.

Here's a partial "thank you" list to those who provided items for the silent auction:

Cool Vega Wagon - I was told that it's been in the same family since the early 70's...  V8 and roll cage were needed upgrades!

One really cool street rod...
