Event Coverage First cruise - in this year ( photos added )

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Jun 27, 2020.

  1. Yeah John, Tommy & his son Paul are 2 of the original members of the Classic Chevy club that disbanded several years ago but they decided to continue hosting the McDonald's cruise in.

    The owner of McDonald's on I-85 retired and sold it to a guy that said all the cars hurt his business on the night of the monthly cruse-in, Tommy & Paul were surprised with his attitude so they went to McDonald's on the forth Saturday and watch the business, there were 119 cars that stopped and went in.

    On a normal cruise night there were in excess of 250 cars and most people went in and ate, or bought a milk shake or a ice cream.

    Tommy was about to give up after he and the classic chevys hosted the cruise in for 23 years and he finally talked to the city and decided if he could get some sponsorship he would rent the Farmers Market, our club stepped up to be one of the sponsors.

    This was the first time it the farmers market and with the covid deal it turned out pretty good. HRP

    Every time i went to Mcdonalds they were packed and always a line at the counters, the new owner is a fool but good to see Tom is still putting on a show. i talked with frank at lowes and he and ed were going to the farmers market but i do not see there cars.

  3. John, you know I love Ed & Frank and they both have Deuces but their taste in wheels ruin both cars, I took photo's but won't post them here, they also like independent front suspension, not hamb friendly. HRP

    Danny thanks for the pictures. It’s too bad the new McDonalds owners felt that way, but it looks like the farmers market isn’t a bad place either.
     
  5. Thanks for the pic fix!
    We had our first downtown cruise June 12, but didn't go. A friend posted pics on FB.
    Not too many HAMB friendly cars. The stand-out was a nice 40 Standard coupe.
    Maybe July's will be better ( or maybe not with the surge).

  6. I hear you Bill, hopefully things will improve in your area, and as you could see out of all the cars that showed up at the farmers market our style cars were in the minatory.

    The 50 coupe coupe and the fresh 40 sedan were the two standouts to me. HRP

  11. I sure was nice getting out and around people even though the heavy rain cut it short, I guess the rain was my fault, I washed my old beater and with the road construction near our home the sedan looked more like I had been 4 wheeling on the back roads,

    I cleaned the car up again this morning, twice in two days, that's more than the car got washed all of last year.:rolleyes: HRP

  14. I had to cover up a later model car to share this Mercury, 289/ 4 speed car and it belongs to the same man that has the red 32 5 window & the red 34 5 window, HRP

  16. Let me try and save face, when I took the photo it was mere seconds before the bottom fell out, I did noticed Brenda patiently waiting for me to get back to the car when I posted the photo. HRP

    It's the 55 chevy 2 door post sedan. The only one in the series. A great looking car but something about the roof line stood out to me.

    Yes...the trunk looks a little short. Do you know the car?? Maybe it's the paint scheme. Dark roof, lighter lower body. Would like to more pics of it.

    Dropped the lab top and some how posted it unfinished, anyway it was cancelled, last year they had around 1800 cars, that really sucked.

  22. I think the 55 Chevy belongs to Tommy, the guy that host the cruise-in, I will try to find out something about it. HRP

    Danny I did the same thing a couple of weeks when another couple and us went to Central City to a winery for an outing. I took pictures of our cars and didn’t notice that Diane was in front of the cars.

    No photos, went to my first car show this year Saturday, small town, no advertising, 25 cars showed, only HAMB friendly was my Merc, Sunday went to a July 4 Independence Day Celebration, a small town yearly event that always has a car show, farm tractors, craft show, beer tent in evening, music, a typical small town event in Wisconsin all summer, very few this year. We and the organizer's were surprised, 300 car turn out, a lot of beautiful cars, beautiful grounds, this event is on my list for the future. Again no pic's as only a handful of HAMB friendly, but with wheels or some other item that would get the pic's deleted, no sense posting them. It was a great weekend, to be out cruising our beautiful state, (360 mile weekend) enjoyed talking with different car guys and my old Merc won an award again which always makes me happy as I enjoy the recognition for my junk, other side of coin, never go home unhappy when no award as my award was/is attending/enjoying the show, so many cars IMO opinion nicer than mine, I really enjoy our great Hobby/people

  28. It's nice when you get recognition for a nice car or truck, but seriously most of the trophy's are dust catchers. :) HRP

    Agree about dust collector part, (I don't dust them) but they make for nice art in my garage/man cave, MY old racing trophies bring up good memories of hard earned success, never seen any awards of any type for failure or mediocrity. I have been Very fortunate in life to receive many awards/trophies from my racing/car fun, some for my business and with risk of pissing off you and many here that are anti awards with our car hobby, to each their own I say. The very best award/reward I get is nice Fathers day cards, family is what matters, this car stuff is just a hobby, everyone should enjoy it in their own way, key word, ENJOY. Am I the only one that notices a change here on the HAMB, everyone going nuts being locked up? I'm very surprised on your comment on trophies, doesn't seem like you.
