I live on a gravel (mud) road. I hope to be on Hines, depending on when this road dries up.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

I have been thinking about checking out the Tuesday Culvers Lake Orion cruise, but haven't made it there yet. Now knowing there are so many trucks that show up, I will definitely check it out. (especially looking forward to seeing the Cameos if they show up again)

I attended the Hines Cruise as well (just as a spectator) I think this is a great event! Vehicles parked to checked out, but also cruising around to hear the engines rumble. Saw a few 54' Chevy trucks.

I cruised it with my 39. Had a lot of fun. I think it is better than the Woodward Dream Cruise. Definitely more relaxing.

I totally agree. Woodward is amazing in it's own right, but the great thing about Hines is that it is closed to through traffic. I am hoping to have my 54' Chevy truck ready for next year's cruise.

Did you make it to the "Detroit Automotive Swap Meet" at Suburban Showplace?
I have never been, and just curious what kind of show it is, and what the turn out was?

I went, first time. There were a lot of vendors and a huge crowd. I did not see anything there I couldn't live without. $5 just to park and $10 to get in. At least it was something to do that day. I've been to the Jackson, Kalamazoo, Monroe and Fowlerville events. Those I enjoyed.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like I didn't miss much, and probably don't have to put it on the calendar for next year...
I have been to the Jackson, Monroe, and Fowlerville meets before, but never to Kalamazoo....might have to check it out...

Going to "Cruisin Hines" next Sunday August 25th in Westland, MI. It is a great show/cruise with tons of vehicles on display/cruisin.
Hope to see some other Bolters there.
Let me know if anyone is going.

I'll be going to the Hines Cruise, weather permitting. Have been to 3 or 4 Hines Cruises in the past. GREAT TIME!!!! I'd rather cruise Hines than go to the Woodward Dream Cruise. I've attended the Woodward Dream Cruise for the past 15 years, not so this year. Out of every 10 vehicles cruising Woodward, 9 of them will be spectators in modern vehicles. The only vehicles allowed at the Hines Cruise are the ones that are 25 years or older and you don't have to pay to park. I'll be there with my 39 Chevy Stake Truck, green with black fenders.

I hear you. Supposed to be only 25 years and older vehicles, but saw many "newer" vehicles.
My 54' truck isn't road worthy yet, so I had the 83' Monte Carlo. Parked and walked a lot.

I was there too! I did not see many newer cars, unless you consider vehicles from the 80's up to 94 as "newer". They are 25 years and older. My 95 Ford Ranger beater would qualify next year and I don't think of it as a classic for sure. It still beats the Woodward Dream Cruise, which has become totally unbearable.

Interesting. I know he said that some of the newer vehicles "sneak in", and that they do not let them in.....but I saw several of the newer vehicles with the yellow tag you get when you pay the $5 to get in, so I know they were let in...anyways...
Regardless, I still think it is a great show overall, and a lot more enjoyable than the Woodward Dream Cruise.

Hoping to make it to a couple shows this weekend as well.
Saturday: looking at either the Downtown Durand, MI show or the Dixieland Flea Market Show
Sunday: Romeo, MI show during the day and parade/cruise downtown Romeo at night.

The unauthorized late model vehicles on a closed cruise course is a problem all organizers face. Our closed course Route 66 cruise in early June of each year is a prime example. There are approximately 25 intersections to be blocked off. That means all hands on deck at the PD and Sheriffs Office. They all get paid to make sure no one without the proper placard gets in the closed loop. Over the years there have been fights, tickets and folks going to jail for entering against orders. The problem lies in the fact that the entire route has residences along it. How can they tell people “You can’t go home for 3 hours” without making some mad. Most people know the date and make sure they are home before starting time but some just have to push the envelope. The Club here is very strict on the 25 year rule but occasionally someone will fool them and get a placard anyway. Sorry your experience was not a good one.

Hi Bill, Rockford is too far for my truck if driven and I don't have a trailer for it. I have to stay pretty close to home with it 'cause top end is 45 MPH.

My grandkids have been asking when the truck is gonna be done so they are really excited to go to their local show. I am also ready to get it on the road and see how it feels and drives. It is a 500 miles one way but will be worth it to see their faces when they get a ride.

I haven't been to this show before, but looking forward to checking out some great trucks.
Hopefully some other Stovebolters will be in attendance?
