Great Neck AutoFest Sets Record for Black Beast Drivers & Mechanicians

Last Sunday's Great Neck AutoFest/Festival was a great success. Thousands came out to enjoy 50 vintage cars, music, carnival rides, a petting zoo and food. A total of 205 people sat in the Alco-6 Racer, setting an all-time record for Black Beast drivers and mechanicians at a single event.


The Black Beast did a few laps on Middleneck Road before and after the Autofest.
