Highlights from the Alco Black Beast at the 2018 Garden City Easter Sunday Vintage Car Parade

The Garden City Easter Sunday Vintage Car Parade has been a wonderful Long Island tradition for 63 years. The Alco Black Beast was greeted with the first smiles and thumbs-ups of 2018.

The Alco Black Beast team had a blast!

Howard, you are a master of making people smile and be happy with your cars! Think of how the memories that were made that day will last forever with the people that experienced the Black Beast. I wish I was recovered enough to have attended.

Love it!
Just wondering, can you run it on today’s pump gas?

Howard Kroplick

No problem running on low octane.

That second “Morning” pic, ¾ left rear view, shows to advantage just how far out behind the rear of the car those rear dumb irons extend!  As to the parade, which I used to attend faithfully, especially when my kiddies were little (there were rides ij rumble seats!), who cares about some noisy, smelly old ALC0 when there’s a glorious 1941 Chrysler convertible in front?  :↓·)  Sam, III
