FOSTERDALE June 27, 2003 Despite the thunder, lighting and rain last Saturday, Fosterdale Auto Sales presented its second annual Car, Bike and Quad Show.
The show was also supposed to host a City Games event, but the games were rescheduled due to the inclement weather.
Despite the weather, smiles and pride were in abundance at the show.
This is the first of four car show events that we have scheduled for the summer months, said Joe Tinari, owner of Fosterdale Auto Sales. We hold these events to give exposure to the western part of Sullivan County which sometimes gets forgotten. It is a fun, family event and it is free, except for the refreshments.
At this show it gives the young kids a chance to show off their cars, Tinari added. They invest so much time and money into their cars and they like to display and show off their cars. We had other cars that were restored scheduled to come, but a lot of the owners do not like to bring them out in bad weather. We still had a great turnout despite the rain.
Everyone that participated in the show received a dash plaque and trophy.
Tinari is currently planning his second car show for Saturday, July 12.
At the next car show we will be having the import car club, motorcycles and more outdoor city games, he said. We will also be having Phil Kross, who is the night DJ from the radio station K104. The event will run from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the corner in Fosterdale at the Fosterdale Auto Sales lot.
A basketball foul shooting contest is also planned for that day.
The event is open to the public. For more information, please call 932-8538 or visit the Web site www.17bcars.com
Other activities planned for later this summer at Fosterdale Auto Sales are kick the can and yo-yo contests on July 26 and a football throw contest on August 9.
