1984 Trenton State Computer Festival in New Jersey, this is back in the day.

Trenton Computer Festival
The first personal computer show in the U.S. It was started in 1976 by Professor Sol Libes and Dr. Allen Katz, and its two principal organizers were Trenton State College (now named The College of New Jersey) and the Amateur Computer Group of New Jersey (ACGNJ). Expecting only a few hundred people, TCF drew several thousand attendees from all over the country, inspiring the creation of the West Coast Computer Faire shortly thereafter.

Notice the wooden bumper on the station wagon, It was broken off on the right side, from a woman that totaled her car betting she could pass a truck on the ice before crashing into the back of me. This was in New Jersey, I Much prefer EarThQuAkeS to snow and ice.
