Automobiles, motorcycles and bicycles were on display this past weekend at Syracuse Motorama, the largest indoor custom and classic car show in New York.

Around 130 well-maintained, elegantly crafted cars lined a barn at the New York State Fairgrounds this weekend, each with its own sign boasting the automobiles' make, model and history. Car owners hovered near their prized automobiles, eager to tell visitors about their lifelong passion for cars. Occasional bursts of laughter could be heard over the live music from a rock and roll band.

To the uninitiated, simply driving a car on a lake--never mind racing--is an exercise in the willful suspension of disbelief.

On a January day, the temperature on Lake Honeoye was in the teens, and there was a stiff breeze coming off the lake. The ice measured 11 inches average thickness, one inch below the 12 inches required for an official event.   But several members of the Central New York Ice Racing Association members decided to take their chances and show up at the usual time to turn some laps.
