Cruise Night 2017, by Wellinski

Photos by Bob Wellinski (click to enlarge)

It was one of those special summer nights when the setting sun bathed the landscape — and also in this case, the gleaming classic vehicles — in a golden hue. Enjoy Bob’s shots of sweet rides as they cruised the drag on Lincolnway Saturday evening, June 10. (And note that in some, his long, tall shadow is part of the portrait!)

    Great shots! Thank you.
    I miss those days of cruising the drag in the 70’s.
    Great muscle cars , great rock – n – roll music, and just a great era.

    Cars were great but the people that were in charge left something to be desired.

      Considering it was their first time doing this. I think it went pretty good. Yes I cruised it ,like I have every year for the past 6 years. And yes it could have ran a little smoother , but give them a chance. I really enjoyed seeing some new faces and cars.

      Darryl,
      There must be something positive about cruise night with such a great turn out.
      As far as your comment about “wealthy older white men” and “old cars”, you are way off base.
      It may appear that the majority of the owners are older, because most of the time it takes this long for a guy or gal to be able to afford a classic car. They are usually busy in life working, supporting a family, and sending their kids to college. With the current reality and classic car auction shows on television, the prices have skyrocketed.
      It’s unfortunate for the Young folks today that may never be able to afford one.
      Everyone has their favorite cars. Myself it’s anything from the 1970’s on back.
      You may like these modern day rice burners with a coffee can muffler that I see everywhere. Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift cars of today are not what must adults prefer. They are nothing but cheaply made plastic cars that usually just make a lot of noise but don’t go anywhere.
      Classic cars and vintage auto signs and memorabilia are better than a 401k in today’s world.
      You like what you like and folks at the cruise night like classic cars and trucks.
      If you don’t want to see old men in old cars than don’t go.

    Hi Darryl
    Who started cruise night 35+years ago.????
    Young gear heads with little 💰 and an unfinished car.
    A lot of years later,very hard work,their own very hard work,weeks and years of saving money to finish their ride.
    The day arrives,the year is here for that now much older gear head.
    The Project finally sees a warm summer night on the drag!!!!
    Maybe cruise night 2017?? Maybe just some warm summer night being
    That young gear head again????? Maybe.
