Well, the Fair Haven Fire Department grounds were flush with oldies on Sunday — cars, trucks and some old-timers themselves.
The Fair Haven Fire Department Fire Police & Auxiliary Car Show made its 18th appearance on the firehouse grounds on Sunday.
In the hopes of having a bit more sun to shine on the day, organizers shifted it to the rain date from the originally planned Saturday event.
There was a big showing and turnout.
Take a look (and please forgive the blurriness of some of the photos. The photographer was a bit out of focus herself with a fall cold.) But, don’t forget to enlarge! Enjoy!

It’s a time for trophies and oldies. This weekend marks the 18th annual Fair Haven Fire Department Fire Police & Auxiliary Car Show.
Rumson-Fair Haven area folks are falling for the spirit of the fall season like kids to a pile of leaves. And the weekend leaves no option but to partake in or at least toss around some activity options. There are many.
Here’s what’s going on in the area this weekend:
In the interest of giving equal time to the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) girls of the football season, the Retro Pic of the Day zooms in on the cheerleaders of the past.
This above photo features the varsity cheerleaders of RFH in 1975-76.
Notice how the captains of the squad’s letters are RF only and they’re in white. Hmmm.
And then there were those catchy cheers with all that stomping, pom-pomming, clapping and megaphones. Aaaaaand “Hey, purple! Hey white! You look so good to meeeeee … Hey, hey, hey purple, hey white …” Who remembers one? Don’t be shy now!
Recognize these girls?
What do you miss about the role of the cheerleader in the past versus the present? What do you like better now about the cheering squads and what is now a dance team?
The Hunt. The Hunt. It was the annual October social gathering of the century in Monmouth County — from 1932 until 1996.
The Hunt, really the Haskell Hunt or Monmouth County Hunt Race Meet. It was where all good Rumson-Fair Haven area hob-knobbers, uppercrusters and hill voyeurs of the famously elite lifestyle gathered on the Amory Haskell Estate in Middletown, pretended to watch horses race and chase a fox, clinked crystal champagne flutes, donned designer duds, and sometimes did a little tipsy debutante tumble in the mud — all in good company. And there were many cheers to the festivity of it all!
Memorial services are set to begin on Friday for well-known Rumsonite, real estate agent and avid volunteer Janet “Jan” Esposito Kaiser, who passed away on Oct. 10.
It’s unseasonably warm. The Navesink River is drenched in sun. And the seagulls are soaking what may just be the last summery fall day all up.
