After one of the hottest weekends on record, a cool front finally pushed through last Monday bringing more seasonable temperatures and less humidity. The net result of the weather change was some nice attendance numbers this week at the local cruise-ins
Tuesday Night Cruise-In at the Hilton Polaris
After a slow start, the Tuesday Night Cruise-In at the Hilton Polaris had over 70 cars show up.
The mode of operation for this cruise-ins seems to be for everyone to show up after 6:30 PM. Prior to 6:30 there were maybe 4-5 cars in the parking lot. I think rush hour traffic has something to do with the late start.
Here are some of the cars that made it out to the cruise-in:
The weather this week rallied back from an almost complete washout the week before to be just about as perfect as one can get. Almost all events this weekend enjoyed dry skies and a little lower than normal temperatures and humidity. The only exception was Der Dutchman where a threat of showers on Thursday evening kept a few cars away. I'll talk more about that later.
JACK MAXTON FRIDAY NIGHT CRUISIN'
Despite being postponed a week, the Jack Maxton all Chevy show on Friday still managed to register 205 vehicles. The strong attendance relieved owner Jeff Mauk's fear that word wouldn't get out about the show's postponement.
This month's live entertainment was provided by the Electric Super Friends band. The band sounded good and played lots of familiar songs.The featured Chevys this month were the Chevelle, Camaro, Nova, Monte Carlo and wagon. It seemed like two out of every three cars at the show were Camaros.
