“Black Beast” Roars at Oyster Bay Cruise Night

The "Black Beast" went cruising last night in Oyster Bay. It was particularly great fun to drive the Alco up and down Audrey Avenue. Here are some highlights from another marvelous Oyster Bay Cruise Night:


Last night's cruise was well-attended with over 200 cars and more than 1,000 spectators...a great time was had by all.


The "Black Beast" was once again a crowd pleaser.


The "Black Beast" always brings a smile to both young and old.


Howard Kroplick discussed the car with Alex Puhls, the chief mechanic for Billly Joel's vintage motorcycle collection.


The crowd heard the "Beast" roar several times during the night.
