Last Sunday, the Alco Black Beast and 59 other vintage automobiles took the Port Jefferson Hill Climb challenge, a tradition dating back to 1910. Above super photo courtesy of Jeff Payne.

Watch me and  master mechanician Sam Greco in the Black Beast finally conquer the Port Jefferson Hill.

My first time at this event and it was lots of fun. I had total confidence that the Black Beast would make the top of the hill. It was interesting to see the nervous faces on some of the drivers as they started up the hill. Everyone attending had a great time. Nice to see you again Howard and congratulations on getting to the top!
