|The Wanderers Car Club of New Jersey was started in 1988 by
Michael Cecchini. It was agreed to by the founding members
that the club would exist without formal organization. To this
day, we have no president or officials of any kind. The only
rule is, there are no rules!!
We have one meeting a year in early spring to plan the year's
activities. At this time we ask all members for a renewal of
their membership with a donation of $25.00 to cover the costs
of our monthly newsletter as well as cards and flowers that
we send throughout the year to members for special
occasions (births, deaths, illness, etc). We publish and mail
out a monthly newsletter as well as our website to keep
members informed of upcoming events and what's going on
with everyone in the club.
Of course, our biggest pride and joy's are our old cars, and we
do have some beauties. At car shows (we attend as many as
we can), we ALWAYS take home a few trophies. Many of our
cars have been resurrected from empty, rusting hulks to like
new condition. These cars represent our past, and we believe
that this history should be preserved. They just don't make
cars like these anymore.
|We are a very family-oriented club. We mail out over 300
newsletters every month to current members, and every
month we add new members. Our main objective is to have
fun, and we have been very successful at doing so.
|Our regular activities include Friday and Saturday cruises. Saturday
is our official Wanderers Cruise-In night at The Chatterbox Drive In on
Ross's Corner (the intersection of Route 15 and Route 206) where we
host many visiting car clubs.
We usually end up at The Chatterbox at night no matter where we
go. There is also a yearly picnic, Poker Run, Mystery Cruise,
Pre-Mother's Day brunch, Sunday cruises, Christmas party (wait
there's lots more), and we attend car shows everywhere from New
York to Florida. The car shows we attend are both big and small.
Join us to find out about lot's more.
|We help raise money for charities by displaying our cars at their
events. We visit nursing homes and support other cruise nights and
car clubs in their activities. We keep no money and donate
everything we raise to local charities. We even hold two fundraisers
of our own. We park our cars in the Sussex Acme parking lot ,play
50's music and collect groceries from shoppers for the local Help
Center, which distributes food to over 100 needy families. It's nice to
be able to help others while having fun showing off our cars. What
more could you want and what a great feeling! We are a very active
club. We live up to our name and don't stay too long in one place.
Feel free to join us at any time. We would be happy to see you and
answer any questions you might have about the club or our cars.
The club is a great hobby because you can meet new people and
spend time with the family as well. Welcome to our club.
