Classic Auto Productions has announced that September 20 and 21,1986, will be the dates for 'Middletown '86', their second annual show. The event, held at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Middletown, New York, will feature a variety of attractions.

Exhibits at the show will include steam and gas engines with related equipment; antique tractors; antique autos; street rods; custom cars; auto engine related flea market; car (for sale) corral; arts and crafts; and several special entertainment attractions.

Last year's 'Middletown '85' event included approximately 30 steam and gas exhibitors, 250 auto exhibits, 100 vendor spaces, and 30 cars for sale. These exhibits along with a clog-dancing demonstration on Sunday, drew an estimated crowd of 7,000 spectators.

Additional attractions are now being planned in order to make this year's show an even more exciting event than last year.

The combination of site (Orange County Fairgrounds home of New York's second largest fair) and location (close to the New York metropolitan area, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and southern New England) make the show easily accessible to a tremendous number of engine enthusiasts in the East.
