The Carbeque


Hey look kids... it's "The Carbeque"

If you're passing through Saratoga on a weekend, here's something you might want to check out. Emil Onzo and his Carbeque have made the Saratoga Auto Museum their weekend "base of operations." The car-be-what? The Carbeque. It's just what it sounds like. A combination car/barbecue.

carbecue2.jpgOnzo, who builds decks when he isn't carbequing, spent 20 years in the automobile business and entered grilling contests in his spare time. A few years ago he combined his passions. He bought a 1984 Corvette, a 1956 Bellaire and a '67 Buick Wildcat, pulled out the engines and replaced them with charcoal barbecue grills.

He tows his carbeques to festivals and special events around the Capital Region and is more than willing to create kits to help other folks convert their old classics.

Onzo's dream "carbecue" car? "A Rolls... definitely a Rolls."


I'll take mine with extra transmission fluid and a side of grease.

I went to polish school, I grew up eating polish food, I even help cook polish food at the biannual polish dinner/ dances and even dressed up like a polish soldier for parades, so l guess I'm polish AND there is nothing better than going to Muza's for the food I grew up that is just as good as moms.
