When it comes to finding things to do in the summertime, car shows are definitely at the top of the list for car enthusiasts, collectors and those looking to share their passion of the motor world with friends and family. Luckily, here on Long Island, we are very fortunate to have a plethora of car, truck and motorcycle shows open for locals to frequent when they’re in need of a fueled fix. Best of all, many of these car shows benefit good causes like local animal shelters, veterans organizations and other charitable causes!
