CRUISIN': Cruise-In season worth looking forward to
In Mar. 8 issue, Russell County News
By Ron Cowell, Columnist


March is here and we are only a month away from Car Shows, Cruise Ins and all the fun of Summer. This is the time of year everyone is getting the dust off their Classic Car and starting to put that Summer time shine on it.

The Somernites Cruise will be starting up in Somerset in April. Anyone who has not had the pleasure of seeing this event needs to get to Somerset this year and check out all of the Classic Cars and Hot Rods in this show. The whole town of Somerset is Full of Old Cars cruising up and down the highways.

Somernites Cruise is the Largest monthly car even in Kentucky and is held every Fourth Friday and Saturday, April through October, rain or shine! The best part about Somernites Cruise it is free for all of those who bring their cars and free for all spectators.

Cruise weekends offer lots of family oriented activities and events on both days and many cruisers are now choosing to arrive on Friday in order to better enjoy all the fun and excitement! There is a Friday night block party in the Wal Mart parking lot and a fun run on Saturday morning.

This is no little event, Somernites Cruise usually has eleven hundred classic cars and truck on display. All of these cars cruising up and down the roadways in Historic Somerset.

If you have never attended a Somernites Cruise you will need to make plans on being there, and dont forget to take your camera.

If you are working on a vehicle and you need a special part for your Classic Car there will be a Swap Meet in Louisville on March 8th from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM and also on

March 9th from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. It will be held at the State Fair and Expo Center. Admission to this even is $10.00. If you would like a little more information on this event call 502-619-2916.

Besides Car Shows, Cruise Ins and Swap Meets the local clubs have been busy Rockin & Rolling to the Oldies of the 50s and 60s. The "OUTSIDERS" Car Club attended a Concert at Georgetown Collage this past month featuring Joey Dee and the Starliters whos biggest hit was The Peppermint Twist. Then a couple weeks later they went to the Norton Centre for the Arts in Danville to see The Coasters, Drifters and the Platters. Even through the winter months there is plenty to keep busy and have fun.

In April the Shows and Cruise Ins all get underway. We will be telling you about some of these as they get closer.
