Long Island Corvette Club Plans Show of Classics

The Long Island Corvette Owners Association will show classic Corvettes on Sunday, July 7, from 11:00 to 4:00 p.m. on the Great Lawn next to the Vanderbilt Mansion.

For more information or to register a car for the show, call Thomas Donato at 516-993-7418. Registration also can be completed in person at the event, from 7:30 to 10:00 a.m.

Visitors interested in attending a car show pay only the general museum admission at the door – $8 for adults, $7 for students with ID and seniors (62 and older), and $5 for children 12 and under. No additional fee is charged for car shows.

(Note: General admission includes estate-grounds access to the Marine Museum, Memorial Wing natural-history and ethnographic-artifact galleries, Nursery Wing, Habitat Room, Egyptian mummy, and Stoll Wing animal-habitat dioramas. For a mansion tour, add $6 per ticket.)

The Vanderbilt Museum has honored William K. Vanderbilt II’s automotive legacy by hosting classic car shows on its grounds for more than three decades.

Vanderbilt, a pioneer race driver who competed in Europe, brought auto racing to the United States. He inaugurated the famous Vanderbilt Cup Races in 1904. That same year, he set a new land-speed record of 92.3 miles per hour in a Mercedes at a course in Florida. He also spurred the development of the American auto industry and built the prototype for the first toll road, the Vanderbilt Motor Parkway on Long Island.
