Classic Car Show Returns to High School on Sunday

SARATOGA SPRINGS – John Grady thinks that people appreciate seeing classic cars as much they enjoy helping out aspiring students.

Grady is the chief organizer of the Saratoga Classic Car Show, which is now in its fourth year.

The retired business teacher also sits on the committee that oversees scholarships awarded to students at Saratoga Springs High School, who are the primary beneficiaries of any proceeds from the event.  

“It’s a way for car enthusiasts to get together for a good cause,” Grady said this week.

Each year, Grady said, the school district’s scholarship fund awards roughly $15,000 to local seniors who are preparing for college and other students. After the awards are determined, the fund needs to be replenished, he added. 

The car show makes use of his extensive experience teaching sports marketing and entrepreneurship as well.

According to Grady, somewhere between 100 and 200 vehicles are expected at this year’s show. It has been scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 6 and will be held at 3 Blue Streak Boulevard on the high school campus. 

There is a $15 registration fee. The promotional flyer indicates that there will be awards given and a Chinese auction, and that food and hot beverages will be served.

DJ Andy Narzynski also will provide musical entertainment.

Want Ad Digest, Mangino Buick GMC, Albany Saratoga Speedway, Michael’s Automotive in Ballston Spa and Versatile Trailer Sales are the listed sponsors of this year’s Saratoga Classic Car Show. 

For more information, call Grady at 518-583-8914.
