SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS — One of the first large public events under eased state rules was held flawlessly in Spring Lake Heights Sunday as the Central Jersey based Positive Earth Drivers Club presented its Annual Father’s Day British car show.

With safety and distancing precautions in place, over 50 cars, their owners, friends, families and spectators came out to Joseph E. Robertson Park to rev their engines and show off some beautiful cars in the hot sun. 

The show’s organizer Pat Wignall said the show was going great and the club was very happy with the turnout and all the cars who drove in. 


“It’s a beautiful day, pandemic or no pandemic, we’re all outdoors, we’re obeying the distance and I think everyone is just happy to have a beautiful day,” said Ms. Wignall. 

With the sun shining, the classic and modern British cars of all makes, models and colors brought out quite a crowd coming and going throughout the day. 

According to Ms. Wignall this is the first time in quite a while the whole club has come out to show their cars. She said it was great to see everyone out despite the masks and distancing.

“The cars are spaced ten feet apart, everybody is being respectful that I see, masks or no masks, everyone is giving their space,” she said.
