Speakeasy Motors Open House

Story & Images: Mark V

On October 23, 2021, in Wallkill, New York a very grand and special event took place among countless friends.  It was the annual Open House and 10th Anniversary of Speakeasy Motors! 

As with every Speakeasy Motors Open House, all the proceeds for the day went to Autism Speaks!  This year I am very happy to announce that a new milestone was reached.  At the end of the day, or should we say a very long night $10K was raised for this very special non-profit charitable corporation. 

Donations, donations, donations!  I have never seen such an overwhelming number of prizes to be raffled, I think in total there were 75.  You would think with so many prizes I would have walked away with something, but this day lady luck was not on my side, but it was still a joy to see people win everything from helmets to the customs painted mailbox that I really, really wanted that Evan himself won!  Hey Evan, Christmas is coming you can always re-gift…ha!

Fun was had by all both young and old.  Custom bikes and cars were everywhere as people just showed and parked. It was great to see the kids out in the open air running free and just being kids and getting dirty. 

 It was also great to see such a mix of people who attended the event.  The great thing about the custom car and bike community is that they truly support and leave all the nonsense this world brings at the side of the road.  It was truly a great day! 

The food was great, and the Speakeasy Motors American Whiskey was even better! 

I have been lucky enough to know Evan for almost as long as he has been in business, as far back as his dirty Jersey days.  Ten plus years later with the help of an amazing support system (I love his mom!) this young man has done amazing things, but we will talk about those in an upcoming Cover Story here at Rubber Culture. 

His biggest accomplishment, or should we just say the best thing that has ever happen to Evan is his darling wife, Jaclyn.  This event truly would never happen if it was not for all the behind the scenes work and endless effort that Jackie puts in to make this such an amazing event every year.

If you missed this year, I suggest you keep an eye open for next years grand event!  It’s a can’t miss!

There are too many names thank and mention, you all know who you are and all I can say is well done!
