During the warmer months, Panther Mountain Inn on Route 9 in Chestertown, NY (exit 25 off I-87) hosts a monthly classic car hop where all are welcome to attend this free event and vote on their top 3 winners. The results are tallied and the 3 winners presented with trophies right before they do a cruise of all the vehicles from the show, through town.
Generally the event starts at 6p, the final votes are in by 7p, trophies are awarded about 7:15 and the cruise takes place shortly after 7:30p. All cars all welcome to compete, paying a small fee to enter a vehicle into the show. Last year we even had a few late model cars. This was the 1st car show of the season, and had only about ten cars entered, so odds are great to win in these shows. If you have a beauty of a vehicle to show off, why not come to the next one?
Three trophies were awarded in the following order:
1st place-Red Ford Falcon (1965/67 I believe) owned by Marty
2nd place-Silver SS Chevelle owned by Palmer
3rd place-Maroon Malibu owned by the Brennans (this was their 1st time ever entering their car in a show, anywhere, and I think they were a bit shell shocked to win :)
I also photographed the vehicles (from every angle, each one) and will post a link to the album once it is uploaded.
