NY Thirdgen club cruise event Oct 23

A buddy of mine told me about the NY Thirdgen club’s upcoming “power tour” cruise event that is this upcoming Saturday. They have done this in recent years and there are some short YouTube videos if you search NY Thirdgen. They also have a Facebook page but I can’t get much of the details because I don’t have a Facebook account so what I can view is limited. Some friends sent me some screenshots and I think I’m going to try to make it to this event, BUT I will have to leave early. I have a wedding for a family member at 1pm in Roxbury so I have to make sure I get back for that. Therefore I might just go meet up for the 9 am start, so the first segment of the cruise, and then book it home.
- edit. From what it looks like, it’s not just limited to thirdgens or fbody cars either , looks like anyone can attend







Also, Sunday, is the big car show in Linden. I have not been to this one but I have heard good things. Thinking about going to this also .

Put a total of 218 miles on the car during Saturday and Sunday and wish I could have done even more.

Headed out early Saturday morning to drive to the meet-up spot in the Bronx. IT was light rain, and surprisingly a bunch of traffic even well before the GW bridge. Car did just fine, even though I was uneasy with all the hecticity and traffic (I'm not a city person). It rained most of the time at the meet-up spot (Orchard Beach, Bronx NY). Had a good turnout of 3rd gens, but I learned some did not make it as planned. They hungout for a while there, took some photos. I had a wedding to be back at BY 1pm, so I knew I could not attend the whole long cruise with the group. Once they headed out towards the 2nd meet-up spot, I jetted off and took the Mario Cuomo bridge home. Tons of traffic at times, got stuck behind a funeral escort where the troopers shut down the highway and rolled at 20 mph for 3+ miles. On route 80 there was a wreck and NJSP helicopters landed too and shut the whole highway down. Yeeesh. Ended up getting to the wedding 2 minutes late, but all went well. Some photos of the entire event/group can be found on the NYTHIRDGEN facebook page.

The only time I think I might have ever been on this bridge to NYC was probably an elementary school field trip on a school bus, so this was a weird moment for me. I could probably play back the dashcam footage/audio and I know I would be saying Oh F, what the hell is going on, what the hell am I doing" !

Car show in Linden was good. I think 650-700 cars attended. Multiple parking lots were filled. Judging was a joke, as most of the many trophy's went to members of a local car club all wearing the same club jacket and acting like big-shots all day long, later high-fiving each other and holding up their trophy’s like rocky balboa winning the title. Weird The judge who did my row of cars spent maybe 11-12 seconds at my car, and despite the judges sheet asking for scores of the entire areas of the car, he just walked up, grabbed the sheet from my dashboard, and walked past the front of the car, put the sheet on his clipboard and walked to the next car doing the same thing...all the way up the row.. never even putting a pen to paper, never looking inside or around the cars. Odd. Aside from that, there was indeed some good cars but I didn't spend much time taking hundreds of photos. Drove home without an issue and had some fun little highway races with strangers. Stopped by Bruce's speed shop today and got the nitrous bottle filled up since I had not filled it after racing a few weeks ago and also used some nitrous up on the street since then too.







Another 1987 red Iroc was there also:

Nice pics. Looks like a good size turbo in that blue car. I pictured this image when you mentioned the club members celebrating their popularity trophy wins.

hahahah super funny meme, and totally accurate!

Yea, that turbo car is a street car but he was pretty elusive about some of the "important numbers". It did not have a roll-bar or roll-cage either, bit I did notice it had a Dart little-M block and some other big ticket parts.


Something I had no idea about until I was chatting with one of the NY thirdgen members, is that the group does not get along with the overall big community of www.thirdgen.org , and nobody would get into details about this? Mysterious stuff in the thirdgen community I guess!?!?

Debated on attending both of those events. Did stuff around the house instead.
Figured the Linden show would be like that. Heard a bunch of the event in that area are.

PS - You misspelled Tappan Zee. Will say the new bridge is nice. Was on it the other weekend going to a New Canaan C&C. You would have enjoyed that.

yup yup. I still enjoyed the drive and the cool cars at the Linden show, but some aspects of it were a little off-putting

Ha, yes Tappan-Zee . I am so far removed from the "city life" and "politics" that I only knew where I was because of the GPS and the highway signs nearby. Someone else joked with me about this topic, so I guess I should be more aware!
