Queens was noted for it’s great farmland, but as transportation of farm goods increased, farms decreased. The Queens’ County farmhouse is the last remaining working farm house in the area. It has barns, livestock, and grows vegetables and plants in Floral Park. On Sunday, April 29th it hosted the 34th Annual AACA-Greater New York Region meet and antique car show. The weather was picture perfect and even though there were many car show nearby, this meet attendees amounted to close to 170 magnificent autos of yesteryear. This club devotes itself to preserving classic and antique cars. Everything from Model T’s and A’s to Studebakers to even a Daily News REO truck was observed. These members are very initiated to keeping with very high AACA standards. Attendance exceeded their expectations and I was so fascinated over the many young people so interested in viewing and learning about these inventive treasures of other by gone eras.
