Friday, January 28, 2011: A 1906 Brochure for the American Mercedes

Wednesday, January 26, 2011: The Mystery 1952 Vanderbilt Cup


Earl Gandel: "In 1978, we (Bridgehampton Racing Group) determined that "The Vanderbilt Cup" was not copyrighted or owned by any entity we could discover, so co-opted the name as "The Vanderbilt Cup Challenge" for an annual joint SCCA/EMRA event, on the date of the previously run CAN/AM races, run through 1969. Where better than on Long Island to perpetuate the name?"

Wednesday, February 2, 2011: A Favorite Website: Long Island Ruins & Remnants


Joey Tabaco:"As preteen kids, we called it the "old motor road", a great playground for us with our bicycles. The closest portion of it was north of LIJ and Hillside Hosp, and a no mans land south between what the was I sort of remember the Deepdale Golf Course, now the North Shore Towers. West it ran into 73 Av in Glen Oaks, across the Queens Farm onto Creedmoor and into Alley Pond all the way to Cunningham west of Francis Lewis across the LIE overpass to Kissena Park into Flushing Meadows. East was a bridge across the GCP/Northern State that we played on, across Lakeville Rd into the Great Neck South campus. As we got older, we ventured further east on it, all the way to where I live now in Lake Ronkonkoma. There was a lot more of it then than now from what I can remember from 50 years ago smile

Sunday, November 15, 2009: Opportunity to Provide Input on the Motor Parkway Trail


Ann: "Hi Howard! I am very impressed with the many people who want to preserve the land of the LIMP. We desperately need the opportunity to preserve our local history and the benefits of trails is an added bonus. A great way to involve the people from the surrounding towns to come together and work for the good of this project."
