                                                  The 2014 Pumpkin Run

       After the previous week rainout, the 19th Annual Pumpkin Run kicked off this past Saturday in perfect form. A little on the chilly side in the morning, but it warmed up later on to make it near perfect weather for the event. 

          The turnout for the PR was even greater than last year in all categories. The volunteer PR staff was again very helpful as they always are, which made the event run even smoother yet. The most noticeable improvements made this year were more available parking and more bathroom facilities. 

         It's difficult for us to determine the exact number of street rods and restored classic cars, but there were quite a few. In the stock car category there were a lot of new cars on display, due in part because the South Jersey Stock Car Reunion has now joined up as part of the PRun, which is, in our opinion, quite an asset in helping to preserve the memories of the history of stock car racing from the early years, and so we say "Thanks to all of you people who take the time to bring your cars to this great event each year. You're greatly appreciated"!

         Below you will see some of the pix of the PRun, especially for those of you who weren't able to attend. Some of the pix are from the previous week, taken before the rainout call on Saturday. We will do this article in two parts, with the continuation of this part coming next week. Take time to enjoy and read the captions below many of the pix. Thanks.
