Automotive perfection in the sun.
Martino Auto Concepts/MAC Auto Couture isn’t your average high-end vehicle repair and customization company. Instead of just making customer’s dreams come true with their large catalog of services, they go above and beyond by bringing the automotive community together for great causes.
Gold Coast Concours/Bimmerstock began as a high-end car show hosted by Martino Auto Concepts/MAC Auto Couture and located in the town square of Glen Cove, NY that brought owners and enthusiasts together to raise money for the Diabetes Research Institute.
Since the first show was held in 2009, millions of dollars have been raised to help search for a cure. Each year, more cars and more attendees come from around the country to the Long Island town for its exciting annual car show. Exhausts crackle in the background, the smell of grilled food and local music fills the air, and all of the high-end exotics and BMWs that you could ever imagine shimmer in the sun.
The 2015 Gold Coast Concours/Bimmerstock was the biggest yet, with the town square filled to capacity as cars extended down each of the main streets and parking lots. Enthusiasts and fans milled through the car-lined streets and brought a wealth of business to the local vendors. Most importantly, they helped to raise over $410,000 for the Diabetes Research Institute as they search for a cure.
Each and every year, Gold Coast Concours/Bimmerstock is filled with your favorite exotics and modified BMWs along with a few rare and vintage automobiles that you’ve only been able to enjoy in pictures. Koenigsegg, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, and others are all out on display. There’s always a character or two walking around and fun to be had; it’s all a part of the special atmosphere and experience.
“I sincerely appreciate everyone’s help in making this year’s event such an amazing success,” said Joe Lapadula. “All who are associated with the event are grateful to our wonderful friends, sponsors, journal supporters and everyone who registered and displayed a vehicle, for being a part of this special day.”
Keep an eye out for the dates of the 2016 Gold Coast Concours/Bimmerstock to be announced in the future. We’d like to extend a special thanks to Event Co-chairs Joe Lapadula and Jon Holzerk of Martino Auto Concepts/MAC Auto Couture for hosting the event. Please be sure to donate to the Diabetes Research Institute as they search for a cure.
