My Ride: Different kind of horsepower on display at Goshen Historic Track

GOSHEN At the Goshen Historic Track, the Orange County Volunteer Fire Police recently hosted their seventh annual Car Show and Food Truck Festival.

Hundreds of people loved seeing the more than 200 automobiles that rang the circuit around lunchtime. The vehicles included unique, vintage, electric, and even custom-built vehicles. Everyone’s attention was drawn to a Tesla pickup vehicle. It had the appearance of something from the Tron movie.

Electric cars are still in their infancy, but they are the ones that are starting to gain popularity and appear in car events. The Historic Track was doing a basket fundraiser to support the track, and there were other merchants as well, such as the Nam Knights who were selling tickets for their motorcycle raffle. DJ Paulie Hot Rod Neimann gave his time to spin the music. Paulie serves on the Orange County Volunteer Fire Police Executive Board as well.

Now, the food trucks definitely attracted one in if the auto show didn’t. It was there, regardless of your taste. I recall this show from its very first season, which was seven years ago. Back then, they needed to have around fifty cars.

Paulie and I used to joke that one day the cars will round the circuit in full. That was May 19, the day of the two rows deep. Visit My Ride of the Hudson Valley on Facebook to view additional images from the presentation.

We can assist you in locating your ideal vehicle.

On Route 17M in New Hampton, there’s a brand-new dealership. About nine months ago, it opened. Even though it’s tiny, it provides a service that none of the other car dealerships on the street do: it can locate the vehicle of your dreams.

Kane and Demitri Pappas are husband and wife, and the owners of The Rad Collection. Demitri has familial ties to Tuxedo because of his roots there. That is what attracted them to establish their company here.

According to Kane, we were impressed by the economic development on Route 17M. It seemed to be a destination for automobile purchases.

Rad Collection stands out due to their focus on automobiles from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. They also stock a few used cars that are more recent. Demitri has always had a fascination with automobiles, particularly those from the 1980s and 1990s, while Kane is from a family that was avid fans of dirt track racing. They have also visited Pocono Raceway a few times and are huge fans of NASCAR. It was the ideal fit.

The Pappas family cut a ribbon to commemorate their grand opening. The Pappas’ vehicles, a 1973 Corvette Stingray, a 1987 Trans AM GTA, and a 1985 Monte Carlo, were on show. The Rad Collection provides individual concierge support. Demitri will come look for you if you tell him what you’re looking for. He conducts evaluations as well.

Kane and Demitri Pappas own RAD Collection in New Hampton.

The Rad Collection has had a fantastic beginning. You might consider bringing one of the cars they had on their lot home. A Jaguar XKR coupe from 2003 caught my attention!
