The Story

The Artie’s Party Cruiser is a one of a kind 1964 Pontiac Safari Wagon. A truly remarkable kustom creation! All proceeds to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central New York.

This project came about when George and Mary Munsterman from First Class Productions offered me this ’64 Pontiac Station Wagon to ‘clean up’ and stripe then auction for Artie’s Party. Unfortunately, they are not able to hold the auction at the 2018 Syracuse Nationals as previously planned. 

Consequently, we have partnered up with the good folks at The Saratoga Springs Auto Museum, and will auction the car at their prestigious auction September 21st & 22nd. With 100% of the proceeds still going to Ronald McDonald House of Central NY.

This auction is one of the finest on the east coast with over 300 cars consigned. Check out their website at saratogaautoauction.org for information about attending and bidding. They have various ways to bid if you cannot attend.

This also gives us the opportunity to show the car at various shows throughout the summer! 

Syracuse Nationals, Syracuse, NY: July 20th – 22nd.
Dead Man’s Curve, Mahwah, NJ: August, 30th – Sept, 2nd
Adirondacks Nationals, Lake George, NY: Sept, 6th – 9th
Concours d’ Elegance, Lake George, NY: Sept, 14th – 16th
Saratoga Automotive Museum, Saratoga Springs, NY: Sept, 17th – Auction

Joe Quitoni and the crew, of Joe Que’s Auto Body along with a lot of friends, have been hard ar work getting the car prepared for the auction.

We have had such great response from people and companies that want to be involved, that the project has taken on a life of its own! Without the generosity of George and Mary Munsterman, this project would have never happened! I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
