As every new year brings excitement, Basil Kazepis, Founder of Westchester Cars & Coffee wants to remind anyone who comes with a car of the basic ground rules as “everything that’s worthwhile has some rules.” He reminds those bringing their cars to the event, “No speeding to and from the event. No aggressive driving into or out of the event. No excessive revving of engines at the event. And please try to be as quiet as possible, there are residents living on the streets leading to the parking lots.” With the ground rules set, the excitement begins as the 2024 season opens.

As the popularity of the Westchester Cars & Coffee has grown, the word of the group has spread throughout the car community, the state and even the nation. The group meetup and numerous events in giving back to the community, caught the eye of Road & Track Magazine. Road & Track is an American automotive enthusiast magazine first published 1947. It is owned by Hearst Magazines and is published six times per year. Road & Track Magazine has a circulation and audience of over 5.5 million people from print, digital and social media. On April 21, 2024, Road & Track Magazine will be coming to Peekskill to cover Westchester Cars & Coffee bringing their editors and staff and possibly a few interesting and very special cars.
