The 10th Annual David Hill Memorial Locust Grove Car Show was held on Sunday, July 12, 2015 on the beautiful grounds of Locust Grove, home of the Samuel Morse Historic Site in Poughkeepsie, New York.
More than 270 vintage cars – American, foreign, classics, sports cars, hot rods and racers – registered for the event.
I was asked to be a volunteer and chose the 2nd shift, 11:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Had intended to arrive early, visit with my friends who were showing cars, check out the other cars and take photos. Well, you guessed it, I got there just in time for my shift.
Managed to take some photos during my break and intended to take more later, but never got around to doing so. I was also tired as it was a hot and somewhat humid day.
Here are a few photos of some of the cars:
That’s it folks! See a car you would like to own?
Even though it was a hot and somewhat humid day, people of all ages just kept coming. An older gentleman, who had owned a few vintage cars during his younger years, came for a trip down memory lane, he bounced through the estate gate happy as a lark.

Starting this year and going forward the show will be known as the David Hill Memorial Locust Grove Car Show in honor of David Hill who past away early this year.
During his life time David Hill generously contributed to the car community and local causes and was instrumental in getting Locust Grove to host the show 10 years ago.

What a fun event to volunteer at! The cars are impeccable! Love the Mustang. Probably not as old as some of the others.
I had a fun time, Wish I had taken more photos.
My husband, who never shows much interest in what I’m doing on my computer, just glanced over and said, ‘Where are those cars?’ He sure would love a day or two to wander around imagining the joy of owning one of these. What an incredible collection xx
It was an incredible collection, too bad I did not take more photos. I think both your husband and your son would have a grand time checking out all those vintage cars.
My husband would have loved to attend this event. Did you get a chance to drive any of the cars? Nice collection!
Got to touch the exterior but no driving not even sitting.
I love all the red ones. 🙂
Well, you can only choose one. 🙂
What a lovely day you had Norma, those classic cars are beautiful. JT owned an Austin Healey that was painted like that red and white corvette; it was so long in the front that I couldn’t reach the pedals! Then he also had an Alfa Romeo Spider that was all red! I think JT would have enjoyed this show. Glad the weather cooperated.
It was a lovely weekend as the balloon festival was scheduled for the same weekend. Here is the link in case you missed my post https://gardentowok.wordpress.com/2015/07/11/25th-hudson-valley-hot-air-balloon-festival/
The car show is a yearly event you could time your NYC visit to coincide with the car show. Both Metro North and Amrtak will bring you to the Poughkeepsie train station.
