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:
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.
