Great Neck Record ” Plaza Autofest/Street Festival Oct.11”

The August 13th issue of the Great Neck Record featured an article on the October 11, 2009 Plaza AutoFest/Street Festival.

Famed car, the 1909 Alco Racer, also known "La Bete Noir" or the "Black Beast", will be featured at the 25th Annual Street Festival to be held on Sunday, October 11 from noon to 5 p.m. The Alco is well known for its win at the Vanderbilt Cup Races over the Long Island Motor Parkway in both 1909 and 1910.

Jay Corn, Great Neck Plaza Business Improvement District (BID) vice president and Autofest committee chairperson is excited about this wonderful addition to the festival. "The Great Neck Plaza BID is proud to have such an iconic car headlining our Autofest this year. Participation is always great in these events and I am sure all participating car enthusiasts will appreciate this exotic addition. Current owner, Howard Kroplick has kept this vehicle in immaculate condition, showing off the car in many events througout Long Island."
