An Introduction – Car Cruises
Welcome to our first post! We were inspired to create a blog all about classic car cruises not only because of our enthusiasm for great classic cars and their history, but also because of the sheer number of car cruises that occur across America each year.
Car cruises often bring out some of the best things in American culture-a sense of community, the camaraderie of a common interest, and memories that transcend generations.It’s almost hard to believe that only a few generations ago, the thought of a car cruise was inconceivable, as cars themselves were only just beginning to be produced.
Go ahead, picture it: grandparents take their young grandchildren to pass by the cars from their own youth, stopping every so often to tell a story about their first date at the drive-in theater in the old blue DeSoto. After a while, they stop and snack on a grilled hot dog and cotton candy from a street vendor who set up shop just for the occasion. Quaint, isn’t it? Often these memories will be among the most cherished for the child and grandparents alike.
Here, you will find information, stories, and memories about car cruises from across the United States. There are car cruises year-round, so whether you are planning a road trip and would like to stop and see a car show, or you own a classic car you would like to display, there will be plenty of opportunities to do so! We hope you will share your own car cruise memories and let us know when the next one is planned in your area so we can write about that, too. We do our best to find out about as many as we can, but sometimes, there are just too many for us to hear about!
Please feel free to give us feedback by posting your comments or questions in the comment section below. Enjoy reading and check back often to see if there will be a car show near you soon!
