Do you attend cruises/car shows?

14 posts in this topic

I've posted the various cruise nights & car shows that I try to attend in the greater Chicagoland area (& other areas of the country) every year. While I know summer is over & winter is right around the corner, I'm curious as to what weekly cruise nights & scheduled car shows you frequent during the year ... & will be preparing for / looking forward to in 2006....

About 15 miles north of me up in Merrimack NH is a huge Budwiser Brewery. They have a "Buick only" shjow every year but in reality it's unofficially a B-O-P event. I attended in 1999 but have not been back since. Gotta stop making excuses and get up there. Other than that there's a few olds School Burger Joints, Ice Cream Stands and empty parking lots that fill up wiht classic care once a week or month here in Mass. And of course there's the Summer Nationals in Worcester every year. HUGE event. People come from all over the country. That's the event wiht the oldest and biggest Burnout Contest. :)

Not much around here that I know of.... Just the yearly Laural Festival in which Main Street is entirely closed for a car show which turns into a cruise at the end of it.

I attends a massive number of shows throughout the year. My favorites are always the All Camaro/Chevy show put on by PNWCC (my club) and Hot August Nights. Anyone up in the Washington State area can always check out the PNWCC events calendar. Listed are not only our shows but a bunch of others. www.pnwcc.com

ABSOLUTELY! I'd live there if I could. Around here we don't have much anymore, I dunno why as we used to have one on every corner. But I love getting the cars out and going to them when I know of one. But when I move to Charlotte during school it should be even better. Seems like there's always something going on in that area. This past weekend I went to the cruise on the "Dale Trail" in Kannapolis (named after Dale Earnhardt--his home town) and loved every mintue of it... Those people are my people... EVERYONE seems to have a car or know a lot about them (I guess since the town was so NASCAR oriented) Too bad my Camaros wont be making the move with me :( Im saw one of the coolest rides I've ever encountered and have pix on my phone. It was an all original 1952 Packard ambulance. The lights and siren still worked and it was a little rusty, but VERY cool. Still had the Packard straight eight in it. Oh and cavigirl found a 70's (Not sure what year she said exactly) BOSS 429 Mustang that she said is pretty rare. (She's the Mustang expert, I'm the Camaro guy) It was ultra cool and looked excellent parked next to what I assumed was the same owners, same color (black) 2005 Mustang GT.

Minnetonka is about 65 miles or about an hour away on I-94 and Elk River is about 45 miles away or about an an hour away on I-94? Why?

Oh... I think its in June or July. I think the end of June, actually, because I remember it interfering with school since we ran late last year. I think, anyways. I can't quite remember.

I missed it this past year b/d my mom was in the hospital having knee surgery. I'll be back for next year though. I usually go the Friday or Saturday before it closes. Come to think of it, this past year was a bust for me...I didn't make a single show or cruise night.

I'm just going for school, semester by semester. So, technically I'm not moving there just yet. Better to leave the Camaro's safe at home. But home's only 2 hours away :)

I hate big crowds so crusies are good for me. I like Auto shows were you walk around the car and look at the engine. Also talk to the owner. Or act like the owner...... lol

Do you frequent many of the Detroit area cruises at all?

Perhaps next time I'm in the Detroit area, we could meet up ... some friends of mine from the FGMC live up near you, I believe....
