Lead East Car Show

    This year the Military Transport Association of North Jersey was invited to attend Lead East on Sunday, August 31st. The weather on Sunday was simply gorgeous with clear blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s.  Negotiations between the sponsors of the event and MTA President Randy Emr and club member Keith Adams provided an opportunity for club members and their families to attend the event without an admission fee. Provided they bring their military vehicles to the show.
    Approximately 1600 classic, antique and custom cars congregated at the Hilton Hotel in Parsippany, New Jersey for the annual Lead East Car Show. Lead East, a four-day event, has been nicknamed the “World’s Biggest 50s Party”. Started in 1983 as a car event, it has grown into a giant oldies nostalgia weekend. The word LEAD refers to the material auto body men used in the 40's and 50's to fill seams, and is a vernacular slang term referring to customized cars, which abound at LEAD EAST.
