AMITYVILLE - A classic car may help one Suffolk village balance its budget.

A 1929 Packard convertible was given to the Village of Amityville by a resident in 1999.

Since then, the car has been used in parades and village celebrations.

The village says it is trying to close its budget gap without a major tax hike and one option being considered is selling the vintage car.

Newsday says the car could go for at least $69,000.

Amityville is also cutting July 4th fireworks and making the village newsletter web-only to cut costs.
