Monday's rock here in the summer because they mean one thing: Mark's Classic Cruise Night at Mark's Auto Parts in Granby, CT!!!
Have I ever mentioned that we are crazy for car shows? It all started way back when Chris and I were dating. He used to drag me around to car shows all over CT and really, I am sure I was rolling my eyes all the way through the first one. I mean, I didn't know the difference between a wheel or a tire, much less a big block or a straight 6.
BUT--the 50's music was great, the people were all really friendly, and after a few times, I began to really enjoy the sound of the muscle cars -- that deep, throaty rrrrRRRRRRR . . . and, well, look at me now. I am plum crazy for a '69 Chevelle.
Now, Chris is so excited to impart his passion for muscle cars onto his son. And the movie Cars has certainly given James a good start! Here he has found what he thinks is Doc Hudson from the movie.
And Lizzie . . .
Only at Marks can you see a boatload of new Challengers all lined up in one place. That's NUTS!
Anyone for a little horsepower?
This one was a beauty. As Chris says, you have to respect something that has been around this long and is original. A true survivor.
Here was a car that we thought resembled Ramone . . .
My boy loves the trucks with the big tires! His birthday is coming up soon. Maybe he wants a lift kit!
Oooh, and a real showstopper. I can just see myself pulling into Fat Boy's Drive In in this baby . .
So what can I say? Monday's around here are something to look forward to! If you are a car afficianado, or you just appreciate a little rumble and some Armorall, visit the Mark's Classic Cruise website to learn more. See you at the show!
