A New Year

Ring in the new with some quality time with your old truck! A great time to tackle a winter project. If you do not have access to your truck, start your parts list for spring!

Disappointed with hines drive today to many new cars
Cops were saying they don't get paid enough to tell
People they can't drive on the cruise. Drive 1/2 of cruise
And left

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.
