Mario's Oyster Bay Car Show June 18th 2024

1947 Ford "Back To The Future" Movie

Our fourth of the season Oyster Bay Cruise Night was held Tuesday night June 18th in our wonderful town. Main Street was closed to traffic and the Classic Cars were all lined up for everyone to enjoy.

The small shops were all open along Main Street for souvenirs, food and drinks. Everyone had a great time, young and old.

The Rock Band was playing those Oldies but Goodies to the delight of the spectators and owners.

It was another fun-filled very warm evening with lots of classic cars and great music. Enjoy, Mario

I see the 36 Plymouth and it reminds me of the car Humphrey Bogart drove in the movie: The Big Sleep. He drove a 1938 Plymouth P6 Deluxe Business Coupe.

Thank you Rob. I like putting some history in my Pages along with the pictures.

Stay cool during this heat wave. At least you don't get the humidity in AZ like we do in NY. Regards, Mario
