Back in 2004, the Grand Rapids metro area was toying with the idea of having a fifteen mile car cruise down 28th St, basically the West Michigan version of the Woodward Dream Cruise. In 2005, the event became a reality, starting with Saturday only, and growing into a Friday-Saturday event.
We take our cruise-ins pretty seriously in Northern, IN. Here are photos from the last one of 2011 at Hooters in my hometown of Mishawaka. Sadly this was the last one ever at this location. The restaurant has since closed. Hopefully another cruise-in will be set up near-by for 2012.
Route 66 in San Bernardino was the place to be this weekend for the 22nd Annual Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous. It was a perfect 80 degree day for one of the hottest cruisin’ classic car shows in southern California. There were over 1,700 classics, customs, trucks, muscle cars and Mustangs stepping back in time this weekend, September 15 – 18, 2011 cruising the 35 blocks of downtown San Bernardino.
The producers of the film Boys of Bonneville displayed the Salt Flats Racer Meteor III and the owner of the local race track Miller Motorsports Park arranged to have the Ford GT’s visit since they were having a national club event at the track. I had made a new friend there, the director of the film and he invited me to attend the VIP screening along with the Ford GT owners and the “important people” or so they were in their own minds.
I took a cruise with CoolFords racing member Racey Stacey along with her club the SoCal Prober Owners club. This is the 2nd time I have been on this cruise. The first time the route was closed off which had been for several years. This year’s cruise was very exciting as they finally opened a 30 mile stretch of ACH. Basically, you can get up their and come back down without turning around.
