oyster bay concours d'excellence show
huge success

We worked very hard preparing for the first annual Oyster Bay Concours d'Excellence car show on July 9 and the work paid off. Held with the cooperation and for the benefit of the Oyster Bay Main Street Association, funds raised will be used for the beautification of Oyster Bay as well as assisting in the Association's very successful efforts to attract business into the town. The show featured the most exceptional vehicles on Long Island as well as some very special exhibition vehicles such as Howard Kroplick’s 1958 Tucker. If you are a Facebook user you may have seen our live broadcasts from the show interviewing many of the vehicle owners. The scores are posted, just click on the “show results” button on the right. We’ll post some of the videos and pictures from the show in the next few days.

All you need to do is email us a list of those members who have paid and wish to pre-register and we’ll add them to the list. On show day the club president, or an appointed officer, can give us their club member’s payments when you check in. Simple! There is no need for member’s to individually pre-register! It couldn’t get any more simple or convenient.

From the Long Island Press:
"Long Islanders have voted New York AutoFest as the best place to see classic, collectible cars on Long Island. Not only is a chance to check out hot rods and souped-up dreamers, but to mingle with like minded folks who appreciate the beauty and immortality possessed by these timeless beasts. Factor in that each event raises money for charity - offering presenters and visitors alike the ability to turn their love of wheels into a source of happiness for so many who do without - and you've got a Bethpage Best of L.I. winner on multiple fronts!"

  • Pre-registration is reduced to $15 for non New York AutoFest Club members.
  • Pre-registration is reduced to $13 for New York AutoFest Club members, $15 at the gate day of show
  • Members of car clubs registered with New York AutoFest can either pay $15 at the gate or $15 with our online pre-registration. Previously you could not pre-register at the reduced club price.
  • As always, pre-registration guarantees you a dash plaque at shows where dash plaques are distributed and at shows where goody bags are distributed you are guaranteed a goody bag.

flags for classrooms

New York AutoFest is proud to announce we have provided 77 classrooms in both public and private schools with the symbol of our country, the American flag. It came to our attention that  the American flag is not displayed in many classrooms on Long Island. There is no excuse for this in a time when our brave service men and women are laying their lives on the line so that we may have the freedom to fly the flag.


Proceeds from our car shows funded this program. Schools can apply for the flags and New York AutoFest supplies the classroom flags along with a plaque and mounting hardware to schools that are approved under the new program.

In addition to funds raised from our shows we will be soliciting corporate and individual sponsorships to help with the demand. Please contact us for further information or check here.
