Welcome to the New VanderbiltCupRaces.com! Warren H: “CONGRATULATIONS… IT LOOKS GREAT!!! I particularly like the “very modern’ look of the site and how well it’s organized. ” Long Island Motor Parkway Bridge Series:#16 New Hyde Park Road Motor Parkway Bridge in Searingtown Mitch K: "These photos once again raise the question of whether the LIMP originally crossed UNDER NHP Road - changing to OVER NHP Road when Moses built the LIMP bridges over NSP. " Howard Kroplick: "Not sure why the building of the Northern State Parkway would impact the new Hyde Park Road Bridge. Clearly, the photos indicate there was a Motor Parkway bridge that went over NHP Road. However, I do not have any images that documents the bridge prior to 1932. Can any LIMPers help?" From the Malcolm Collum Collection: More Classic Images of “Old 16” John Mingst: "If memory serves me right, Old 16 was also the grand marshal car for the opening of the Bridgehampton race track in 1957. Making it the first car down the new east end track. " Roger P: “Many thanks for those terrific pictures of Old #16 and the video with Paul Newman. What a treat!”

Howard,

I just want to mention that on Sunday, Feb. 12, the Vanderbilt Cup Region, AACA will be holding its annual indoor flea market at the Brush Barn in Smithtown from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M.  It’s just east of Route 111 on Route 25.
