Ushering in the latest automotive trends, the 2017 New York International Auto Show showcasef an incredible collection of cutting-edge design and extraordinary innovation. More than four floors of displays from the world’s automakers  featuref the newest vehicles and latest futuristic concept cars. Nearly 1,000 cars and trucks will be on display this year at North America’s first and largest-attended auto show dating back to 1900.
 
In 1900, the New York International Automobile Show became North America’s first automotive exhibition. For over one hundred years, through depression, war, boom-time, oil crisis, recession and growth, it has continued its pioneering tradition of bringing new and innovative ideas to a national and world stage.

In addition to its place as one of the world’s greatest public shows, NYIAS has expanded its range of world-class trade and industry events. No other event brings the business, consumer and lifestyle press, Wall Street’s financial community, the marketing and advertisers of Madison Avenue, and the nation’s largest and most diverse metropolitan population together in such a unique way.
 
This year Saratoga Auto Museum exhibited an array of fabulous vintage automobiles.  During the event I had to opportunity to talk with Art Director/Designer Brandon Salls about the fabulous cars exhibited at this year’s New York International Auto Show.
 
From Manhattan to Buffalo to Saratoga Springs and beyond, many people are surprised to learn that New York State was once home to over 100 different automobile manufacturers.  This year the 2017 New York International Automobile Show organizers are celebrating New York State's automobile heritage with a special exhibition curated by the Saratoga Automobile Museum.  Listed below are just some of the vehicles -- made or raced in New York -- that are on display at this year's Show:

• 1909 Alco-6 Racer (raced)
• 1923 Franklin Series 10B Sedan (made)
• 1947 Playboy Prototype (made)
• 1950 Allard J2 (raced)
• 1956 Midget Racer (raced)

 The Saratoga Automobile Museum was organized in 1999, and opened to the public in 2002. The Museum’s mission is to preserve, interpret and exhibit automobiles and automotive artifacts. The museum celebrates the automobile and educate the general public, students and enthusiasts regarding the role of the automobile in New York State and in the wider world. In addition to technical and design aspects, their educational focus is on the past, present and future social and economic impact of the automobile.

The Museum is located within the 2,500 acre Saratoga Spa State Park, in the heart of historic Saratoga Springs, New York, world famous for its legendary, much honored one-mile thoroughbred track. The museum’s facility is the totally restored and renovated Saratoga Bottling Plant, a beautiful neo-classic structure built in 1934. The Museum is adjacent to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and near the landmark Gideon Putnam Hotel. Within walking distance in the Park are the National Museum of Dance, the Spa Little Theatre and the lavish Hall of Springs banquet facility.

This year the 1969 Boss302 Ford Mustang was exhibited by Rallyrd.com.  CEO and Co-founder Christopher Bruno discussed the pros of owning this fabulous automobile.

1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302

The Cleveland was conceived as Ford’s mainstay midsize V-8 for the 1970s. With relatively minor modifications, the Cleveland heads were tested on a Tunnel Port 302 racing long block and showed great potential. The heads were modestly retooled to work on the 302 block and got a solid lifter valvetrain. The engine, at that time, was given the name Street/Sedan 302. Automatic transmissions needed not apply: This car and engine were meant to homologate a race car, and the latter ran only four-speed manuals.

According to author Donald Farr, in his book Mustang Boss 302, Knudsen decreed that this special Mustang had to be “the best-handling street car available on the American market” — a tall order given its live rear axle and rear leaf springs.

Ride and Handling engineer Matt Donner was tasked with developing the bits required to meet Knudsen’s requirements. Donner’s principal tool was a ’68 Mustang GT notchback coupe fitted with ’69-spec suspension, then heavily upgraded, modified, and tested. That meant stiffer springs, additional shock tower bracing, beefier spindles, purpose-tuned shock absorbers, different anti-roll bars, and F60-15 tires. The weight was brought in line with what was projected for the ’69 body, and a hot rodded V-8 was cobbled together to simulate the Street/Sedan 302’s power curve.

Guests gathered at the 2016 Bridgehampton Road Rally and Tour d’Hamptons.



Eligible Cars included automobiles built in 1969 and earlier. Newer vintages were considered on a case-by-case basis. This year’s Rally included a judged show, a parade, a historic trivia quest, and a special timed component. The Rally Route was approximately 60 miles and included four stops to collect poker cards, as well as stops at historic trivia sites. The route took about three hours to complete.

To car enthusiasts, cars are a way of life. They love the sight of shining chrome, the sound of a performance engine, the smell of handcrafted leather and wood. Car enthusiasts love the history and evolution of the automobile. They feel the warm glow of nostalgia when seeing cars from their past. They understand the automobile’s social significance and impact on society. They appreciate the technological advancements in performance, speed and aerodynamics. And they marvel at the sheer beauty of a well-designed classic.

Replica of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Car And ETV Car On Exhibit At The New York International Auto Show

Exact Replica of The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Car Exhibited at the NewYork International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Center


 










It was ten days of non-stop excitement, unmatched entertainment with over one thousand unbelievable cars as visitors from around the globe visited the New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Center from March 25th through April 3, 2016.

The 2016 New York International Auto Show showcased an incredible collection of cutting-edge car designs and extraordinary innovation. More than four floors of displays from the world’s automakers featured the newest vehicles and latest futuristic concept cars. Nearly 1,000 cars and trucks were on display at North America’s first and largest-attended auto show, which dates back to 1900.

I had the pleasure of interviewing two fascinating individuals about their unique cars. One was Dave DiEugenio from the Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey about the extraordinary ETV Car and Entertainment Attorney Deborah A. Sable about an exact replica of The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Car.

Members of the Vintage Automobile Club of Ocean County are working to establish New Jersey’s first antique automobile museum. Although there are museums and attractions throughout New Jersey that have a number of antique cars, there isn’t one true antique car museum in the entire state. The Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey’s goal is to provide a facility that will display, preserve and educate the public about the automobile and how it shaped the growth of this country. In the interim, the members of the organization have a “museum on wheels” that visits schools, health care facilities and public functions to provide these opportunities.

For more information please visit their website at http://www.vintageautomuseum.org,

Another remarkable automobile was an exact replica of the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Car that was seen in the 1960’s Film starring Dick Van Dyke. Entertainment Attorney and Activist Deborah A. Sable revealed the story behind why the owner, Mr. Garofolo, hand built this car.

Some people know Long Islander Tony Garofalo as a retired New York City Police Department sergeant. Others know him as a Douglas Elliman real estate agent. Still others know him as the talented John Lennon impersonator/vocalist/guitarist from The Beatles tribute band he founded in 1991, “Strawberry Fields.”

But up until now, only a few insiders knew of Garofalo’s lifelong passion with the movie musical “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” starring Dick Van Dyke, after first seeing the premier of the film in 1968 with his mother, Anna Garofalo, at Radio City Music Hall.

Mr. Garofolo did complete the car which was exhibited at the 2016 New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan. The car was completed on June 30, 2015. The project took over 5 years to complete at a cost of over $100,000. The last finishing touch was installing retractable wings that fold out from under the car using two 12-volt actuators, just like in the film. Tony is continually asked; “does the car fly?” Now he says, “Yes! Ha!!”

Car aficionados attended the 2015 Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance.
 
More than 250 of the world’s finest, rarest and most exciting classic automobiles were on display for the Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance, 30 and 31 May at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park on a verdant peninsula in Greenwich Harbor.
 
 
David E. Davis, Jr., noted automotive journalist and founder of Automobile Magazine, when serving as Chief Judge of the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance observed that, "You see cars at Greenwich that you just don't see anywhere else."
 
The Greenwich Concours d'Elegance, defined as A Festival of Speed and Style, is known as a truly unique event. For openers, it is actually two concours back-to-back, with American cars and motorcycles shown on Saturday, and imported marques shown on Sunday.
 
Additionally, the location is like no other, a lush, verdant peninsula at the head of Greenwich Harbor, surrounded by water on three sides. It is the only concours with a railroad station a block away (with regular service from New York City), and an I-95 exit ramp right at the Concours entrance. Greenwich Avenue, with its luxury stores and restaurants, is walking distance away.
 

This year the only Ferrari P3/4 race car ever built, was driven to the event by its owner, this year’s  Grand Marshal, Jim Glickenhaus.
 
James Glickenhaus is an American investment professional at Glickenhaus & Co., the finance firm started by his father, Seth Glickenhaus. He was formerly a movie director before entering the finance world.
 
Glickenhaus wrote, directed and produced a number of films in the 1980s and 1990s including the film The Exterminator and the Jackie Chan vehicle The Protector. Glickenhaus is also an avid collector of former racing vehicles, especially Ferraris. His coachbuilt Ferrari P4/5 is one of the most famous automobiles in the world. 
James Glickenhaus continues to build, race and collect exotic cars.
Rare vintage automobiles is his passion.
 
 
His films include:
 
    Bad Biology (2008) (actor)
    Timemaster (1995) (director, writer)
    Tough and Deadly (1995) (executive producer)
    Ring of Steel (1994) (executive producer)
    Slaughter of the Innocents (1993) (director, writer)

Renowned Car Collector, Racer and Builder Jim Glickenhaus to Drive World’s Only Ferrari P3/4 to 2015 Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance


Hello Darlings, Welcome Back to
Cognac's Corner Magazine





















































Renowned Car Collector, Racer and Builder Jim Glickenhaus to Drive World’s Only Ferrari P3/4 to 2015 Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance 











 More than 250 of the world’s finest, rarest and most exciting classic automobiles will be on display for the Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance, 30 and 31 May at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park on a verdant peninsula in Greenwich Harbor. One of those, the only Ferrari P3/4 race car ever built, will be driven to the event by its owner, this year’s  Grand Marshal, Jim Glickenhaus.

Glickenhaus is a long time supporter of the event and renowned among automotive connoisseurs -- especially Ferrari collectors -- for restoring, preserving, driving and now building some of the world’s rarest sports and racing cars. He will drive, not trailer, the 1967 Ferrari P3/4 – surely one of the world’s most valuable Ferrari racecars -- from his home in nearby Rye, NY to the Concours grounds. His very special Ferrari, chassis No. 0846, won the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona and raced at that year’s Targa Florio and Le Mans.

Celebrating its 20th year, the Greenwich Concours also honors its tradition of gathering the most discerning automobile collectors and enthusiasts. One of those,  Wayne Carini, will serve as Chief Judge for the 2015 event. A leading car restorer, Carini is of course known by many as the host of Velocity “Chasing Classic Cars” TV show and a master at locating rare “barn finds.” 

Unique among classic automobile events, the Greenwich Concours has always presented two separate concours fields over a weekend: On Saturday, the Greenwich Concours Americana features American cars, and Sunday’s Greenwich Concours International is exclusively for imported sports, competition and touring cars. Each day features some 125 cars and awards trophies for Best-of-Show, Peoples’ Choice and various classes. 

Two new sponsors join the Greenwich Concours this year, financial powerhouse Charles Schwab and GH Mumm, the official champagne of F1 racing. Spectators might want to “ask Chuck” to advise on the best way to allocate finances for a collector car they dream of. The presence of GH Mumm speaks to the elegance of the Concours. Fittingly, Jean De Castelnau, the GH Mumm Champagne Ambassador, will present the trophy each day for “Most Elegant Car.”

The History of the Automobile, Comes to Life Over Two Days
The Greenwich Concours offers spectators an amazing cross-section of auto history. Any spectators driving to the event in a Tesla should definitely have a look at one of its progenitors, one of the oldest electric cars in the world, an 1896 Roberts. Like the Tesla, it’s American. It runs on 12 six-volt batteries and will be on the field on Saturday.

Along with well known classics including Auburn, Cadillac, Cord, Duesenberg, Hudson, Packard, Corvette, Alfa-Romeo, Bentley, Ferrari, Delahaye, Aston Martin, Maserati, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Rolls-Royce, Greenwich always presents rarities you might not see elsewhere. This year’s event is no exception, with examples running the gamut from an Amphicar, a mix of car and boat, to a Russian ZiL, a Cold War-era limousine used by top Soviet leaders. And, if you’ve never seen a Brazilian sports car, be sure to check out the 1980 Puma GTS Spider.

The Ferrari bloodline is always well represented at Greenwich. In addition to the P3/4, this year’s Concours offers a 1959 250 GT, 1964 250 GT Lusso, a 1967 275 GTB/4, 1972 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder and a 1983 512BBi. 

Muscle car fans can expect to see their share of rarities, including a 1964 Studebaker Avanti R2, a 1969 Yenko Chevelle and a 1969 Shelby GT500.

Local American auto history is also presented at Greenwich. This year, an 1899 Locomobile Model 1 is entered; Locomobiles were made in Watertown, Mass. until 1900 and then Bridgeport, CT until the company’s demise in 1929.

Modern sports, luxury and exotic cars are shown on the field, with brand new versions displayed on the field periphery by the event’s prestigious sponsors: BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac, Land Rover and Volvo. Some of the sponsors’ cars will be available for spectators to test-drive.

Another sponsor, who has been with the event all 20 years, Greenwich-based Miller Motorcars, showcases the newest models from Ferrari, McLaren, Pagani, Bugatti, Rolls-Royce and Bentley. With their help there will be a special super car circle headlined by a stunning Pagani Huayra. 

Million-Dollar Classics for Sale at Bonhams Auction
One of the most talked-about attractions at the Greenwich Concours, a kind of bonus show, is the Bonhams Auction of rare and important collector cars and automobilia held on Sunday. This year’s top attraction is a 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Stelvio convertible with coachwork by Gangloff. It’s estimated sale price is $900,000-$1.1 million. Spectators can view the consigned vehicles on Saturday, included with Concours admission. 

There are usually 90-100 classic automobiles to see in the auction tent, many of them rarely seen models from private collections. (Admittance to the auction tent on Sunday requires purchase of a catalog by bidders and spectators.)

Classic Racing YachtsSailing enthusiasts also find something to see at the Greenwich Concours. Berthed across from the Concours grounds in Greenwich Harbor, the ex-America’s Cup 12-meter yachts America II, Freedom and Lionheart will be on view for spectators. 

AmeriCares 
Americares, ranked as one of the most efficient charitable organizations in the country, is the charitable beneficiary of the Greenwich Concours. Since 1982, 
AmeriCares has delivered more than $12 billion in aid to help people in 164 countries. The organization responds quickly to humanitarian emergencies, for example sending medical personnel and supplies to Nepal within 48 hours after the worst earthquake there in 80 years. Closer to home, AmeriCares was on the scene with aid during Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

A must-see event for car enthusiasts of all stripes, the Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance is listed in the North American edition of “1,000 Places to See Before You Die.”

Cars displayed included a wide range from classic Model Ts from 1905 to a 1912 hook and ladder fire truck to jazzy Thunderbirds from the 1950s. These perfectly preserved examples represent the pride and hard work of auto collectors and enthusiasts who share an interest in our rich automobile heritage.

Sunday, 1 June 2014, Bonhams Greenwich Concours D'Elegance Auction was held in Greenwich, CT. Although this auction is not Bonham's most unique, it is regarded as an event that hold dearest and quaint to all car enthusiast on the car aficionado's calendar.
This year's auction featured 405 lots—from memorabilia to stunningly restored sportscars, motorcycles, speedboats and even vintage fire engines. "We do all eras," Evan Ide, Senior Motorcar Specialist for Bonhams revealed. "This year we cover from 1905 to the 1990s. A full spread."
 
At the event I had the chance to chat with Artist and designer Paul Chenard and Race car Driver and avid Car Collector Nick Grewal who resides in England.
