As the day dawned on a beautiful L.I. summer Sunday, a rumble was heard throughout the Village of this quaint little south shore town, which meant only one thing – the Sayville Summerfest Car Gathering was once again happening along Main Street. By 7am, I was walking down Main Street to find at least 50 or more cars, classics and trucks already setting up their vehicles and displays. With polishing cloths in hand, the owners were happy to (Continue Reading)

In Memory of Sal Castiglione

Article & photos by Cowboy

On a clear, crisp Saturday morning, I found myself covering an assignment, I had never covered before: a farewell convoy for a young trucker named Sal Castiglione. As I walked down the road of an industrial park leading to the Elizabeth Truck Center, I arrived at a sight to behold. Lined down the road for as far as the eye could see were almost 100 Big Rigs already waiting in line to pay tribute to this beloved young man. I had the pleasure of speaking with many of Sal’s family and friends and learned that this was a young man, who was always there when needed, and would travel anywhere at any time to help. It was an honor to speak with so many, who relived the stories they told about their friend. (Continue Reading)

WW II Armor

Article & photos by Cowboy

 

It was a clear Saturday afternoon when I entered the grounds of the Old Bethpage Village Restoration. It was as if I passed through a time warp. I approached the parking area and was greeted by a group of World War II Allied Soldiers, who were manning a check point. They asked me if I was the new photographer and then pointed me in the direction of the encampment at the bottom of the hill. As I entered the area various armored vehicles were being prepared for battle. An M4 Sherman Tank, M16 Quad Halftrack, M3A1 Scout Car with mounted machine gun, and various Troop Carriers were being prepped for an all-out assault on an enemy machine gun nest/bunker in the French countryside.

I was a little worried when I looked out my window on Father’s Day morning and saw a sea of fog, but by the time I arrived at Merrick Train Station for the Annual Car Show/Motorcycle run the weather was starting to clear. I arrived to a line of classic vehicles waiting to get this show on the road. This show, which benefits the Nassau County Sheriff’s Dept. Widows & Children Fund grows in numbers each year. While getting ready to start shooting, I heard a familiar rumble coming from Sunrise Highway, I looked up to see around 65 Motorcycles,(Led by members of the Forsaken Guns M.C.) rolling into the area set aside for motorcycles parking.
