This year marked the 10th year of the Orchard Beach (Bronx, NY) Car Show. The Show is put on as a fundraiser for the NYPD’s 9-11 Widows and Orphans Fund, and each year features a memorial Motorcycle Run, special celebrity guests, and literally thousands of vehicles. Among the celebrity guests this year were former Heavyweight champion Jake LaMotta, Larry Storch (Most notably known for his role as Corporal Agarn in the TV comedy F-Troop), Tom Wopat (Dukes of Hazzard), and the Christine Car Club. The latter of the special celebrity guests, the Christine Car Club, was commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Movie Christine, and had several of the original cast present at their display area. I managed to stop by and talk to Larry Storch, who was a nice a person as anyone would want to meet, talking to me like an old friend, and I also stopped by Tom Wopat’ s Booth, and had a couple of photos taken with him by his General Lee. The folks at the Christine Car Club were a fairly nice bunch, and I, and one of the Christine owners talked about our old Mopars, his Christine movie car, and my 1960 Plymouth Savoy.
The Orchard Beach Show is not only put on for as worthy cause, but it is just generally a fun Show to attend, and I hope I can do so again next year.
