A Car show is being held tomorrow to honor a 47-year old man who was a long-time classic auto enthusiast. Bill Geller was walking on Route 22 when he was struck and killed by an elderly driver last February. The First Annual Bill Geller Memorial Car Show will be held from 9am to 4pm Sunday at Temple Beth Elohim on Mount Ebo Road North in Brewster.
There will be live bands, food and trophies for winning car show entrants. Restaurant reservations, sports memorabilia, concert tickets and car accessories are among the donated items. Admission is free and all proceeds will benefit the temple.
On February 15th, 2013 Geller drove to the local A&P to pick up dog food in Golden's Bridge New York. He locked his car keys in his car. He called a cab but the cab never came. He decided to walk home. Half way into his walk, an 88 year old retired veteran struck Geller on the passenger side of his car. The graphic designer left a wife and a 14 year old son.
He had restored a '67 orange Karmann Ghia that his family says he was so proud to drive and took such great care of. His son is following his foot steps. Max drew the logo on the Registration flyer. It’s a caricuture of his father's face in the Ghia.
