Listen up, transportation nation! The next few months are going to be a trip, no matter what your preferred mode of hitting the road.
Maspeth World of Wheels
Saturday, June 21, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Knockdown Center, 52-19 Flushing Ave., Ridgewood, Queens
The above video teaser alone is worth the price of admission ($5) to this auto show curated by artists including Grayson Cox, Elizabeth Ferry, Jeff Degolier and Michael Merck, who was last seen producing the Knockdown Center’s flea market. Among the “100 carcentricities” promised are a steamroller, Honda festishists, “scary tow trucks and impressive Lamborghinis,” a Playgirl van and some artists confronting the “automobile as our nation’s long standing symbol of manifest destiny and superfluous ingenuity.” Music by The Dangles and The Golden Grass from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
