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."

My husband and I took a couples massage class a few years ago around Valentines Day at Om Shanti Healing Arts. Not sure if it's offered year round but worth an ask.
