Highlights, Smiles & Thumbs Ups from the Hurricane Sandy Benefit Car Show

Despite the 40 degree and breezy weather, over 800 vintage and collectible cars warmed Commack last Sunday for the Hurricane Sandy Benefit Car Show. Hats off to Leo Cerruti of the New York Autofest and the sponsors for organizing this wonderful benefit in only 18 days!

Congratulations on the BEST CAR IN SHOW Howard. There is no way you can ever not win at a car show with THE BLACK BEAST, it’s the most original and oldest car there and always a crowd pleaser, especially the kids, you letting them sit in it and taking their pictures, that’s great. Most of the cars you took pictures of I saw, but some I didn’t see, they most have left before I got there. As I said last time you take great pictures, thanks, In the meanwhile I’ll be watching for more updates

Thank you Howard for bringing the ALCO. I was especially proud to present you with both a Spectator’s Choice plaque and then the Best in Show. As always you are a great crowd pleaser and your presence helped us to raise a lot of money, food, clothing, and school supplies for Hurricane Sandy victims.

I look forward to having you at more of our shows next season.
