Cruising with the WHDOW and JCSMA crews.

After what seems like a long winter and a spring that just won’t quite come I made it to my first car event today. I didn’t get to partake in the whole cruise, but fortunately I was able meet up with the crew at one of the stops which luckily was just down the road from the IG world head quarters. It seems like it’s been forever since I saw my friends at the White Hall Drag O Way and Jersey County Street machine Association and was it nice to get out and see them again. Oh yeah, and their cars.

2014 Pike County Muscle Car Tour

Car shows are fun and it’s certainly a great place to take the family and see some great pieces of automotive engineering. I’m glad they exists because it’s important to have these shiny pristine examples for the world to see. However I’d trade ten car shows for one day of cruising. Today was that day. The day started off very wet and while some spirits were dampened and some owners decided to keep their cars in the garage a small but mighty crew turned out to hit the open road in the name of American muscle.

I would get the luxury of riding shot gun in one bad ass fifth gen Camaro that I’ve showed you before here on IG. The pilot on our rocket ship Brenton and I have more in common then just a love for cars. Both of us are also bass guitarist and farmers. Needless today there was no lack of good conversation in our car. Mainly though it was about cars and I was fortunate enough to spend the day in his 500+hp rocket ship. LS3 powered, cammed, and a mean exhaust meant when we rolled into a little town everyone took notice.

The late summer and early fall are ripe with car shows and cruises and I will try and hit as many as I can. First up is the Got Faith show in Jerseyville, Illinois. It’s a great little show for a really great cause. Feeding the hungry. In fact I can’t think of a more worthy cause for a car show. If you’ve missed it in the past why not check out some of our coverage. Got Faith Car Show.

One last post from the Rod Rod: Wentzville Cruise Night.

We will return for the last time to Wentzville Cruise Night. The Rod Run held biannually was a great event with a lot of variety. Since I’ve to quote a good friend of mine “done mopar to death” I thought I’d take a look at some other brands at the cruise in.

Fords were of course out in force. Aren’t they always? From T buckets to the latest and greatest. Ford is not all that was at cruise in though.
