FISKER "KARMA"

As I was in Lake Placid NY a few weeks back, I had the pleasure of sitting in a FISKER "KARMA" plug-in hybrid!  With a base price starting at $100k, this vehicle  is nothing short of luxurious!

Farewell Porsche, Hello Nascar!

It was an exciting morning as I pulled up to the Museum to see the transport trailers lined up and ready for unloading.  However it wasn't the trailers that were exciting me, it was the race cars within that had our hearts racing! 

But when I walked inside, I was struck with a bit of grief as the final Porsche was being pushed ever so carefully out the garage door.  The Porsche's welcomed me to this wonderful place several months ago, and I have to admit I was sad to see them go.  The floor was now empty, the banners and flair had all been taken down, and our canvas was clean and ready for some color! 

One by one the NASCAR race cars made their way.  It was somewhat strange to have these powerfully loud vehicles silently rolled in!  They are massive machines, built with a meticulous understanding and attention to detail for the many laws of science.  The evolution of these cars and the NASCAR sport is laid out right in front of you as you walk through our exhibit.  I am proud to have lent my two hands, along side the many others, who made "Moonshine to Millionaires" come to life!

Autoshow Weekend - Recap

As I sit here and run the amazing events of this past weekend through my mind, I wonder where I should even begin...so I've decided to take it from the start!

The weekend kicked off Friday morning as I arrived to the Museum to see one of the finest displays of auto craftsmanship, design and engineering that I've ever seen, as the Invitational cars lined up for their drive to Lake George.

Wayne Carini held the floor that night as he spoke to an eager and engaged audience on topics of auto restoration along with auto education.  I even saw Wayne Saturday morning mingling with the vendors on the field!  Mother Nature set the stage by providing the most optimum weather for the weekend.  After seeing the cars illuminated by florescent lights here in the museum for the past few months, it was truly breathtaking to see the sparkle and shine that only the sun's rays can provide.  As the Euroshow cars began to line the field, it was clear that we were in for a real treat.

Saturday night's gala was a evening for the history books!  The company, the food, the entertainment and the auctions were just over the top.  Thank you to everyone who attended and helped raise money for the "Make a Wish Foundation" and SAMS Garage.

Sunday started off with a healthy dose of SPF sunscreen as we prepared for the Autoshow and the Invitational.  I had the honor of spending the morning with 15 young car enthusiasts for the Haggerty Youth Judging.  Five invitational Cars were chosen for us to judge, as we had the pleasure of meeting the owners of each vehicle and learning the history and engineering behind their prize possessions.  We all learned and had a terrific time.  Special thanks to Cris from Haggerty for such a great program.

The tally's were counted and the awards were given, and one by one we all watched as the cars left the field.  Overwhelmed by the excitement and exhaustion of the weekend, the only thing that ran through my mind was...I CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!
