Highlights from the Vanderbilt Cup Region-AACA’s Spring Dust-Off to the Waterfront at Roslyn

It was a beautiful Spring day last Sunday as members of the Vanderbilt Cup Region of the AACA and Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society cruised to Waterfront at Roslyn to tour the Black Beast Garage. 

A photo taken by Bruce Adams even ended up on the CBS-Channel 2 weather report.

Love the Black Beast! I got to drive it back in the mid-eighties when I was a Master Craftsman Technician at Harrah’s Auto Collection. We had to exercise it in preparation for an event in Atlanta. It’s a good thing there is now an electric starter installed as I remember that there was no one at the facility that could hand crank it over fast enough to start, we had to pull start it! Also remember an incredible amount of lovely noise and the flames shooting out the exhaust. What an incredible car! Hats off to you for preserving it and keeping it in regular use.
