The Ferrari Club of America, Naples Chapter, has invited the Saratoga Automobile Museum to partner with them and St. Matthew’s House to host this premier motorcar auction as part of The Naples Automotive Experience. Dan has been an integral part of running his family-owned and operated automotive dealership and repair shop located in Fulton County for more than 30 years. He became the Museum’s Deputy Auction Director last March, and Auction Director last September.
Dustin Lanterman, Communications Director for the Saratoga Automobile Museum sat down (virtually) with Brian Brodeur to discuss the Fourth Annual Saratoga Motorcar Auction and some of the star consignments on TapIntoTV.
Carly Connors on Cars Yeah!
Carly Connors is the Executive Director at the Saratoga Automobile Museum. The Museum’s mission is to preserve, interpret and exhibit automobiles and automotive artifacts. They celebrate the automobile and educate the general public, students and enthusiasts regarding the role of the automobile in New York State and in the wider world. In addition to technical and design aspects, our educational focus is on the past, present and future social and economic impact of the automobile.
Carly joined the Board of the Museum and stepped in to help while they looked for a new Director. Turns out, they had their new Director already and it was Carly. So far she’s served in her role longer than any other Director in the Museum’s history. Carly also sits on the Board of the Northeast Audi Club serving as their President and Treasurer.
