Equinunk 2015 Car Show - Moves into History

Written by Webmaster on .

The Equinunk Historical Society 16th Annual Car Show passed into history on June 20th at 3:00pm as another huge success getting kudos from everyone who attended. Despite the less than ideal weather, over 120 vehicles made their way to the show.

Taking the People’s Choice Award was Rodney Updegrave, Jr. from Tremont, PA for his 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood, a breathtaking vehicle.

Four Special Recognition Awards were presented to: Joe Kooistra from Honesdale, PA for his 1957 Chevy Belair, an old-school “gasser.”; Don Karcher from Starlight, PA for his 1933 Dodge coupe, a good guy with a very good car; Mike Novatnak from Hawley, PA for his 1962 Chevy Impala convertible, a frame-off restoration with a 409 engine and four-speed; and Joe Griffin from Walton, NY for his 1934 Ford pickup, an immaculate vehicle.

Although this years winners were all popular classic cars and trucks, the show prides itself on it's vehicle diversity (e.g. last years People's Choice Award went to a 2010 Peterbilt 389 “Big Rig”).

The Historical Society would like to thank Mel Freilich and Caren Raphael for hosting the event, Jim Balakian and Lenny Caputi for providing parking on their land, all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event another success, and all the local merchants and patrons who contributed to the event.
