NNL East, the world renowned non-competitive model car show held annually in Parsippany, NJ, holds a special place in the hearts of most members of the Town of Newburgh Model Car Club.   Affectionately known as the annual "pilgrimmage to model car mecca", the trip to NNL East every March is as eagerly anticipated by our members as Christmas morning is to children.  The show is expertly run by the Tri-State Model Car Club, and stakes its claim every year as the largest annual gathering of model cars and enthusiasts in the USA (2000+ models in 2009 !)

NNL East is such an important part of our car modeling lives, we thought it made sense to include a page for it on our site.  We've got links to photos from past years, a listing of our club members who've won Peoples's Choice Awards, and some info on next year's show, including a countdown ticker to the big day.


Each year's show has a theme, and although NNL East is a non-competitive show, the Tri-State club sponsors one or more People's Choice awards every year.  Awards are given to the outstanding models that fit the annual theme, as well as plaques for the Best Junior model and Best in Show, based on popular vote by show attendees.  TNMCC members have been fortunate enough to bring home many of these awards over the years, as you can see below.
