To make sure everyone in the area knows Doc’s Rod Shop presents Gasoline Alley and Artie’s Party, are inside the Horticulture Building, a vintage funny car known as the Frantic Ford, will be parked in front of the building and started three times daily, 15 minutes prior to the beginning of each auction.

“Gasoline Alley is a great addition to Artie's Party, so anything we can add to the mix to get more people into the building who will purchase auction items is worthwhile,” said Art Schilling, director of the annual Artie’s Party. Artie’s Party is the fund-raising event that features over 50 pinstripe and airbrush artists who create works of art for auction during the Syracuse Nationals. Artie also added, "One hundred percent of the proceeds from the auctions will go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central New York.

Schilling, owner of East Coast Artie’s of Surf Side Beach, SC, is a long-time race aficionado, who in his younger years drove a top-fuel dragster, and funny car. Artie said the idea of bringing old race cars to one spot for visitors to enjoy, has been a great addition to Artie's Party.

Gasoline Alley brings together at least 40 nostalgic race cars including dragsters, gassers, super stocks, funny cars, oval track, and sports cars. In 2015, Artie enlisted “Dino” Lawrence to coordinate the Nostalgia Race Car Exhibit. Dino is a lettering artist & pinstriper, and like Artie, has a long history of motorsports experience. Dino was the track announcer at the old Dover Drag Strip, and operated a 50’s style cruise night in Bethel, C.T. He currently is the owner of Carolina Signworks in Rockingham, N.C., and directs the annual Dover Drag Strip Nostalgia Drags at Lebanon Valley Dragway.

"Gasoline Alley presented by Doc’s Rod Shop" will be located on the eastern end of the Horticulture Building, next to Artie's Party. Below are just a few of the cars planned to be on display for 2016!
