Cruise-a-Palooza was held at Seekonk Speedway, Route 6, Seekonk, Mass. My wife and I decided it would be fun to take a ride out to check out the cars. We did not get up early so we thought we would just go and look. That did not happen. We arrived at the speedway around 1:00P.M or so. We pulled into the parking lot to park, when the people parking the visitors came to us and asked if we would please show our SSR. They told us to pull into the show parking area, almost like it wasn't an option not to.

We ended up in a row of some of the most classic of all vehicles. Next to us where 1958 & 1960, and 197? Corvettes, a 60's Chevy Impala, and so many other beautiful machines I can't even begin to explain.

Once we parked it became obvious that touring the site for us was NOT going to happen. The crowds came. It was like there where no other cars in the lot. The person owning the 70 something Vette was visibly irritated by lack of attention to his wonderful car. After about 2 hours or so the Impala, 1958 corvette, and the 70 something vette all moved or left.

Speaking with the owner of the 1960 corvette, he said he could not get over the attention our SSR was getting and that we were very easily the show favorite.

I HAD A PERFECT DAY to say the least.

I couldn't wait to get home to share this day with you all.

Not everyone gives it that much attention. I was at a corvette show this weekend and the SSR was hardly noticed, even by me as I sat in a virtual sea of over one hundred corvettes! These guys put a lot into their cars. ONe guy actually took his entire car apart and chromed every piece of it and ghost flamed purple flames on all the engine parts and the outside of the vehicle. The engine was gorgeous and an obvious best in show. I had a ball!

Locked Out

There are some Hot Rod Events that don't allow SSR's, due to the age of the car or truck. Just like the NHRA Museum Twilght Cruise in Pomona, 1970 or older are only allow to park in front of the Museum.:nono
Too bad, just find somewhere else to go cruising.:cool
