LAKE GEORGE — Lake George is the center of the Northeast’s car universe this year with the Adirondack Nationals Car Show.  

Two thousand cars are on display and countless others have rolled into town — trucks, sedans, muscle cars, classic cars, vintage cars, convertibles and coupes like Kevin Baker’s 1931 Chevy Coupe.  

The Long Island resident said his car took him five years to build. He loves hot rods — “the sound, the smell, the uncomfortableness driving it.”

However, the show is more than just more than just cars. 

“It’s just the atmosphere. You come here to Lake George, the Adirondack Mountains, you’re hanging out, you meet people, hanging out with people, you know car culture,” he said.  

The event draws tens of thousands of people.   

“This is definitely the place to be. I mean a beautiful backdrop, the lake, the hotel, Canada Street,” said Kenny Williams of Adirondack Nationals Car Show.   

The business owners love it — especially because it comes after the summer tourist season. 

“Really helps build Warren County into a year-round destination. It helps us provide year-round jobs, capital for all these properties to be able to upkeep. It’s a game changer,” said Sam Luciano, president of Fort William Henry Hotel and Conference Center.  

This is the 34th year of the show and the 33rd year being held in Lake George. Every year, they donate a portion of the proceeds to charity. 

“We try to do as much as we can for everybody,” Williams said.  

This year, one of the recipients is Kelly’s Angels, a charity founded by NewsChannel 13’s Mark Mulholland. Some volunteers from Kelly’s Angels will be volunteering at the event.
