East End Winery Tour November 2014

by Roger on Dec.05, 2014, under Club News

Bill Writes:
Sunday, November 16th marked the annual return of a favorite Empire Car Club event: the Long Island Winery Cruise. Now enjoying its fifth year, this East End driving event is always reliably popular with the membership for two reasons. For one, it is the last “driving destination” event of the year, providing a great reason for our members to drive their classic cars one last time before we hibernate our vehicles for the long winter. Secondly, who can resist joining their fellow club members for a scenic drive through winding East End roads and stopping off for a winery visit, a hearty lunch and always a perfect spot (or maybe two) for a fabulous photo featuring both car and owner. The 2014 edition of the LI Winery Cruise offered all these features and more.

Then and Now: Barney Motor Car Company 17th and 6th

by Roger on Nov.22, 2014, under Then and Now

Steve Writes:
Brick’s Gulf Station and Barney Motor Car Corp. were on the corner of 17th Street and Sixth Avenue. The 4 story building with the Barney sign painted on it is still there (Liquor sign) and the dome, just visible above it sits atop St. Francis Xavier Church on 16th Street. The most intriguing sign, however, is the “BARNEY/TUCKER” sign on the one-story showroom facing 6th Avenue. Unfortunately an inconsiderate pedestrian is blocking the view of the car poking its nose toward the sidewalk. Was it a Tucker? Will we ever know? I like the 1948 view better – look at all them Buicks!! Cheers, Steve

LCCI Empire Region Receives an All Star Award From LIGLFF

by Roger on Nov.20, 2014, under Club News

Bill Writes:
Recently, Empire Car Club was the recipient of the prestigious All Star Award at the 17th Annual Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (LIGLFF).

Each year, the LIGLFF organization bestows this honor upon a Long Island community group that continuously supports awareness and acceptance of the LGBT community and has devoted time and experience to the success of the Long Island Gay & Lesbian Film Festival throughout the year. In August of 2013 and 2014, Empire Car Club has served as co-sponsor of LIGLFF’s summer program, Men’s Shorts Movie Night.

Many of us have attended this fun evening where we display our classic cars outside Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, LI – the host theater that sponsors all the LIGLFF programs. Such events allow us to give back to the community while providing exposure to moviegoers who may not be familiar with our organization and it has served as a clever way to recruit new club members. All of us within the membership of Empire Car Club are thrilled and honored to accept our very first Long Island LGBT community award.
