About three weeks ago we got invited to a cruise-in that has been taking place regularly on Thursday evenings between five and seven at the local Cabelas parking lot . As it's only a couple miles from home I had to check it out .
Been there three weeks in a row now and it has not been disappointing at all.
Met some cool old duffers like these two rough looking cats Dan with the 64 Impala and Mike with the 64 Galaxie convertible.
The event was started this spring by car geek and all around good kid Derick Rabida seen here in the "topless" shirt with the little purple Nissan truck.
Mostly a boy racer and tuner thing until us Gray-beards started showing up recently .
You never know what will turn up
Bear's mint 57
Or some fool in an old Volvo
A kid with a right hand drive Toyota with tuner V8 engine
. . . or a Japanese import Honda Kei-Car
Also right hand drive
With its Japanese inspection sticker
Dan's 64 Impala
An immaculate AMC 72? Javelin
A 71 Celica
With a monster clutch eating Lexus V8 engine crammed in it
A hard top sixty something Galaxie
A well preserved 89 Nissan 240SX
With a mint interior
To a 77 Oldsmobile with the choked down F heads and monstrous Holleys just for show
Or whatever this sled is
With a giant five liter Ford V8
With an interesting interior
My friend Scott's pristine 53 Customline Ford
A superbly restored candy red 66 Charger
That tempts even the most non-Mopar schlep like me . . .
. . . with its classic sweeping lines
. . . and iconic interior
Modern cars don't have nothing on this
Sad to think already today these are just a nostalgic memory
A baby yellow sixty something . . .
The "Ladies Man" pimp-mobile with purple under-lighting . . .
. . . decorated with drapes and crystal tumblers for his Courvoisier
And an 83? Celica Supra with a recent buff job
Even the Harley Drawn Hot-Dog cart was there to feed the hungry last night.
