    Any cruising going on this weekend? I figured with Good Guys in town, it might be a better turn out. I know the pavillions will be packed but I'm sick of sitting in parking lots. Maybe some of the local hot rod shops have something going on.

    I think most will be at Good-Guys this weekend, especially Saturday, Pavillions will be packed. Don't forget we also have NASCAR in town this weekend!

    I almost have my truck back together, I'm trying to make Good-Guys Saturday. I've seen a few members on here try and put together a little gathering/cruise on Central from time to time, I'd be interested in meeting with some you folks down there.

    If I find anything, I'll post up and see if there is any interest. Worst case, I can check out the show.

    Not sure if I want to dust off my little red clown nose and big, floppy clown shoes and participate in this circus.

    Probably I'll just watch from the patio at the George & Dragon.

    I know that its a bit of a free for all, but at least there are people out cruising. You just don't get much of that anymore, its all been shutdown. The nice thing is you can come out, enjoy what you can and leave.

    The nostalgia drags look cool. Have a good time.

    You guys still plan on doing the run on 4/25? I've got the wife talked into driving her '55 on a field trip.

    So how is it going, getting many cruisers coming out, hassles with the law? Small turnouts? big turnouts? What's the scoop guys?

    There has been a varying number of cars... usually a dozen or twenty. There would be more if you guys came over! The official, unofficial meet up is sundown.

    need louvers ?

    No problem with police at all. Matter of fact, they have found the restaurant that we are basing this out of, and about mid evening they are walking around looking at at the cars most weekends. Any where between 15 and 30 cars per weekend. Tiny for around here, when Pavillions out on Scottsdale draws as much as a thousand cars a night, and on the west side of town on the same night they draw 600 or so each week. Now it's time to let those folks know that Central is back!

    Every Saturday night about sunset.

    Words getting out.... had a handful of VW guys tonight in addition to the usual cast of characters. Last weekend a few really, really nice lowriders happened by. Here's a couple of stolen pics....

    I meant to go see if I could find anyone last night, but I was too tired....and I couldn't find this thread when I searched for it. Oh well.

    (up in Phx this weekend playing with my kids)
     
  27. Hey, the Burger Rush joint they were meeting at closed its doors unexpectedly so last night everyone met at the 5&Diner on 16th just north of Camelback until they can find a new spot just because they are hot rod friendly. I didn't make it out until after 8 so I just cruised central a bit. But as of right now that's where you can find them next week, if the location updates I'll come back and post.
