From a small group of car enthusiasts with a shared passion for hot rods, muscle cars, and American Steel, the Adirondack Nationals has blossomed into an iconic event that captures the essence of the automobile culture. This event, which had its humble beginnings as the Albany Rod’s and Kustoms (ARK) show in the early 1980s, has since evolved into one of the largest muscle car shows on the eastern seaboard.
