WESTFIELD, NJ—On Saturday, April 27, the Westfield Classic Car Auction and Car/Motorcycle Show, presented by iBid Motors and Trinity Solar, will take place at the Westfield Armory, 550 Rahway Avenue. In addition to a chance to see hot rods, classic muscle cars, exotics and motorcycles, the family-friendly event will include entertainment by local DJ Hot Rod Mike, safety demonstrations and performances by Tony the Dancing Cop, a bounce castle for kids and a number of vendors.

For baseball fans, John Rocker will be on hand for photo ops and to sign copies of his new book, “Scars & Strikes.” Famous cars--including the General Lee from Dukes of Hazard and a replica of the Batmobile--will be on display, as well.  Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Money from the auction and show will benefit The Sandy Ground Project and The Paul Jackson Fund. The Central Jersey Blood Center will host a blood drive there, as well, and for every pint of blood donated they will give $5 to the Sandy Ground Project on behalf of iBid Motors.

Purchase a “family pack” in advance at www.wheelsandwishes.com and The Paul Jackson Fund will receive a portion of the sale. The pack includes four general admission tickets for $25, plus four hot dogs and four soft drinks.

A two-for-one coupon (buy one adult entry, get a second free) is also available on the website. Tickets will be available at the door. Children under 12 will be admitted for free with an adult.

Inside the armory, cars and motorcycles of all types will be up for auction. Anyone interested in buying a vehicle is encouraged to register to be a bidder prior to Saturday at ibidauctionslive.com. Proxibid, an online auction portal, will host the online bidding portion of the auction on their website, where a live stream of the event will be viewable to buyers anywhere in the world.
