Not only do these guys throw a tremendous show, the vehicle selection of the entire show was amazing and they had Wall To Wall beautiful rides, from cars, trucks and bikes.  They also had a really cool Go Kart track right inside the show and seeing those 80 horsepower rockets go around that short track was pretty amazing.  We had some great luck with the Ultimate Camaro, Bringing home Outstanding Display, Outstanding Weekend Driver Custom, And Award Of  Excellence for finishing in the top 12 out of 400 Cars

Wow!! Thats the first thing that pops into my head when i think about this show. The 2011 Northeast Carshow was one to drool over. The Caliber of cars was incredible, the place was jam packed with the most beautiful cars, trucks, Racecars, and even Gokarts. They had several events, Celebrities, models and there was never a dull moment the whole weekend, The live Gokart racing was some Fast Paced indoor fun, and We even Got some Awesome Pictures with Model Krista Elyse with our Ultimate 68 Camaro, and she picked our ride out of 350 Beautiful rides as her personal choice. This is one show we wont miss, Cant wait untill next year!

The car show takes place ONE DAY ONLY, and trophies are awarded. over 225 cars registered for the 2009 one – and it’s probably going to be bigger this time around!

Woodbury Days first welcomed guests in 1978. 25,000-30,000 people will attend the three day event (the car show is only one of these days – there’s plenty for the whole family to do)

Famous Uncle Al’s Hot Dogs & Grille

Famous Uncle Al’s Hot Dogs & Grille

With a car cruise night every Friday, it’s one of our local hangouts that we love. Starts at 5:30 pm and goes to whenever. Pretty famous, too.

Marcus Dairy

Will it or won’t it happen at Marcus Dairy?

Marcus Dairy - cruisin with motorcycles and hot rods.Whether or not there is an ‘official’ car show every year on the premises, motorcycles and cars from hundreds of miles around come to celebrate this local dairy business.

The story goes back a ways. They started in 1913, when it was a bit more rural around Danbury at the time. The restaurant was setup later after the milk processing plant was built. Jack and Pearl ran the dairy and restaurant.

Early in the ’60’s, it started to become the popular riding destination. It’s still thumping today. And, being only about 66 miles away from Manhattan, it’s a worthy drive out of the city.

Sycamore Drive-In

A genuine car-hop service!

We love drive ins….

The Sycamore Drive-In is a genuine drive in with car-hop service (just blink your lights) and window trays for in-car dining. Specialty of the house is a Dagwood burger, which is a patty of griddle-crisped beef topped with cheese and nearly every garnish known to mankind. Sycamore’s root beer, served in frosted mugs, is homemade.

Summer Saturdays from 6-9 p.m. are Cruise Nights at Bethel, Connecticut’s Sycamore Drive-In, with classic cars, a DJ, giveaways, and of course, the Sycamore’s famous French Style Steakburgers and homemade Old-Fashioned Root Beer.
