As stated numerous times, the focus of this website is Central Ohio car events. But since I’m down in Florida for the winter, I thought I’d share my first Florida cruise-in with everyone and spark a little excitement for the upcoming car show season.
Now before you call me names or curse at me for escaping Ohio’s winter weather, the high temperature in Central Florida on Saturday was a balmy 52 degrees. It was cold enough to warrant wearing a winter coat. Ugh!
The cruise-in I attended is a monthly event held on the second Saturday of each month. It’s hosted by the East Coast Cruisers Club and takes place in the historical downtown area of New Smyrna Beach. A six block section of Canal Street is blocked off for the event which goes from 4 PM to 8 PM. Because of the cold temperatures and early sunset, many of the cars starting leaving around 6 PM.
The event attracted a nice mix of classic and modern muscle cars. I estimate there was well over 100 cars on display during the time I was there. No one manufacturer was favored over another. There was also a nice crowd of spectators. Given the cold temperatures (for Florida that is), the turnout was impressive.
Here’s a sampling of cars that participated in Saturday’s event. If you want to see more photos from the cruise-in, click the link immediately following the photos. Enjoy!
