Well, our official name is "The Fossils of South Jersey, Inc.". The club was founded in the early 80's by eight fellows attending a car show in a group. When asked the name of their club, one of them responded by saying "we're not a club, just a bunch of old Fossils' and that was the beginning of what is now one of the most admired and respected clubs in New Jersey. We are registered as a non-profit organization with the local, state and federal governments. We donate thousands of dollars each year to many charities, deserving projects and programs, such as: a scholarship at the vocational school system preferably to go to a student of the automotive trade; municipal and county food banks; Reindancer Therapudic Riding Academy, Toys for Tots, The Providance House just name a few.
The Fossils are a family oriented club. Our memberships are families...husband, wife and children living at home. All members have an equal voice in all club matters. We have only two formal club meetings a year. The monthly club business is overseen by a board of trustees.
What do we do as a club?
April starts our Cruise Nights, held on the last Friday of each month through November with rain dates announced as needed at Jackson Outlet Mall on Route 537. The third Sunday of May is our annual Car Show, held at Jackson Memorial High School, Jackson, NJ.
How does one become a Fossil one might ask? By asking a club member to direct you to a trustee of the club \ for an application and filling it out is a good start. You MUST have an American made vehicle that is QQ eligible and be willing to be active in the club. If you can't be willing to show up and help, then Don't Bother Asking! If we don't get active members, we can't be an active club. Please be patient...we have a limited membership.
Thanks to all the car enthusiasts that came out to the Jackson Outlets on June 10th. It was a beautiful night for a cruise and all had fun. Click here for some the pictures that were taken during the night.
