CRUISIN': Things getting busy as summer approaches
In May 10 issue, Russell County News
By Ron Cowell, Columnist


The summer has been off to
a good start with all the Car
Clubs active and the Cruise Ins
and Shows underway. On
Thursday May 1st The
Outsiders had their first Cruise
In. The club was just newly
formed in the fall of 2007 but is
well on their way.

The Cruise In
was held at Lake
& Shake and
Town & Country
Realty.

There were cars
there from The Ol
Boys Toys, Lake
C u m b e r l a n d
Classic Cars and others. All
that attended had a good time.
If you missed out on this one
dont worry, The Outsiders will
have a Cruise In at that same
location the 1st Thursday of
each month from 6:00 PM till
when ever.

There was 50s, 60s and 70s
music provided by a DJ.
There were prizes given away
for the right answer to the
Trivia questions asked on the
Old Music and TV of the past.
It turned out to be fun time
for all who attended.

The first weekend of each
month will give you plenty to
do if you like the old cars.
Besides The Outsiders Cruise
in on Thursdays nights The
Old Boys Toys will have a
Block Party the first Friday of
each month at Sonic in the
Key Village Shopping Center.

This will get underway at
6:00PM till ?????? And dont
forget the Ol Boys Toys Car
Show the third Saturday of
each month through
September. These are held at
the K Mart Parking lot. There
are trophies given away for
the top car in each class.
If you are ready for a little
g e t

their 22nd annual car
show, Saturday and Sunday,
May 17th and 18th.

This all takes place in the
downtown area of Henderson
Kentucky.

There is usually anywhere
from 300 to 500 cars attending
this show.

You will see all original,
street rods, rat rods, cars and

On Saturday Night there is a
BIG Sock Hop where the owners
of the Cars and spectators
all gather and listen to the
oldies of the past and talk cars.

who hear a song that brings
back a memory and youll see
dancing in the Streets.

Then on Saturday the actual

are T Shirts for the first 100
people registered plus dash
plaques and Goodie Bags for
the first 200 registered.

There are food venders there
with all kinds of good food.
The aroma of Rexs BBQ fills
the air with a fragrance that
will make you hungry even if
you are not. There are vendors
there for car parts, T Shirts and
more.
