Albany Rods & Kustoms

Albany Rods & Kustoms, or ARK for short is a car club based in Albany, NY with members from all over the Upstate NY area. ARK was founded in 1983, in 1985 ARK hosted their first event, "the Highland Farms Car Show" in Altamont NY, in 1986. It started "The Mom and Apple Pie Car Show". These first shows were small and drew less than 100 cars. In 1988, ARK held a "by invitation" show called the Adirondack Nationals at the Sheraton Inn of Glens Falls, NY. There were 268 cars. The following year, the show was moved to its present location on the grounds of the Fort William Henry Resort in Lake George, NY. The event just keeps getting bigger and better. We now average 1500 cars...
