On Tuesday night I attended a car show put on by the East Coast Car Association at Resorts World Casino here in Queens NY. The show is about 5 miles from our house and it is a weekly show put on by some good people. The club raises money all year long and gives it to the children’s hospital at the end of the year. You may remember I went to the show a few years ago in Forest Park.
They have many cars from all over NY that come in for their shows and the spot at the new casino here is perfect for it as they have a separate parking lot that is a great place to show cars. There are cars from all types and years. Although there were only a few Cadillacs at this show it was great. If you are in the area and you want to come to a car show it is every Tuesday night from 5-9pm. They have a food court in the casino that is a good place to get a bite to eat also.
My camera was not on the right setting and all the pictures came out grainy. I converted them to HDR to spice them up a little. I have been getting into HDR photography and cars come out looking great. Next week the pictures will be better. I taught myself iMovie and put all the pictures in a slideshow video. Let me know if you like this format!
You can also see the pictures in our Flickr account.
I filmed 3 or 4 videos while I was there with my iPad. You can see them on our Cadillac Forum One is of a 1993 Cadillac Allante.
Don Butler Leaving Cadillac
I was really sad to see my friend Don Butler leaving his position of Cadillac vice president of global strategic development. I sat and talked with Don at the NY auto show and we had a really good conversation about Cadillac and where it was heading. We sat and talked about the ATS and XTS for a while. Really enjoyed our conversation. Good luck to him and thank you for all you did with Cadillac.
Back in NYC
For those that have been following my journey with the hurricane damage I am back in NYC and finishing the house. Hard to believe it has been almost 10 months since we lost everything. Your support in emails have helped us get through a tough time. I appreciate that more than you will ever know. I am going to make sure that if something like this happens to anyone in the club we can help. While I have everyones email address I don’t have a home address. That is going to change and will be totally voluntary. I will set up a form and maybe call it VIP members or something.
