Jaguars Visit the Black Beast

Over forty members of the Jaguar Drivers Club of Long Island and the MG Club took a cruise last Sunday to the Black Beast Garage at Waterfront at Roslyn. A wonderful time was had by all.

25 vintage cars joined the cruise on a beautiful Sunday.

Everyone enjoyed hearing the Black Beast roar.

$150 was raised for Child Abuse Prevention Services resulting in many rides in the Black Beast.

After visiting the garage, George V. sent this photo of his 1925 Long Island Motor Parkway license plate framed with the cover of one of my favorite books.

Mike Carroll:
Thanks very much for your hospitality yesterday.  When you asked if some of our members would enjoy a ride I did not imagine that everyone who wanted one would be able to enjoy the experience.  I have attached a few pictures that you might be able to use in your website.
From Howard Kroplick:

Thanks, Mike!

(once my everyday car - ca. 1954-56)!
