A CUNY seminar website provides historical descriptions of various Queens neighborhoods. VanderbiltCupRaces.com was cited in the review of the Long Island Motor Parkway.



 

The Black Beast was featured on the cover of the September 2010 issue of the ARPO (Associationof Retired Police Officers) Newsletter. The humorous caption reads:"George Maher, ARPO 2nd VP, is taking Steve Zacchia from the Police Museum for a ride in George's new car.

Howard,
I don’t know if it’s too late, but on Sunday, Sept. 19th, there’s the Smithtown Heritage Country Fair held in the historic area of Smithtown, just east of route 111 on Middle Country Road (Route 25).
We expect antique and classic cars, as well as the antique truck club to be in attendance.
Thanks.
