Classic car cruises are summer fun for just about everyone

The first thing that Ed Murrow noticed as he cruised his 1932 Ford coupe up into the back of his VFW lot was just how many people of all different ages, personalities, and persuasions had turned out to get a look at some classic automobiles.
Telling reporters that he first bought the 1932 Coupe at a racetrack in Cleveland (where was used as a beater car) and has been restoring it ever sense, the conversation continued to move back to just how many people turn out for these classic car cruises on a regular summer night.
While we all have gotten hung up on the craze of instant communication, digital technology, and being able to jump into almost anything online that we are interested in, we almost always forget about just how real and these kinds of experiences can be. Nothing screams summer more than a classic car cruise – and it has a way to not only connect automobile owners of each and every era, but also regular folks just coming by to check out the show.
The next time that you see a flyer for a classic car cruise in your neighborhood, make sure that you swing on by and have a look around the parking lot – the odds are fantastic that you’ll see the same things Ed Murrow saw: a community getting back together again.
