Where The Cars Are: Meschutt Beach

(My article at about Meschutt Beach in Hampton Bays and the classic car enthusiasts who gather there.)

Want to know where the girls are? Sometimes they're on Jobs Lane in Southampton shopping. Sometimes they're having lunch in East Hampton at Cittanuova. And sometimes they're on Meschutt Beach, next to an open hood showing off the engine of a muscle car.

The first time I ever went to spend a Friday night at Meschutt Beach on the canal in Hampton Bays was about three years ago. The beach on the Great Peconic Bay was still packed with families, the Beach Hut was almost standing room only, and the rumble of the engines from what seemed like a hundred classic cars was mixed with the familiar salt air. It was an endless parade of cars from every era, enough to make even the most hardened gear-head salivate, that passed by throughout the evening.
