Classic cars draw huge crowd for Cruz-In

South Boston News / October 14, 2019
The sounds of music and roaring engines could be heard up and down Main Street in downtown South Boston Saturday as a big crowd turned out for the Downtown South Boston Cruz-In.

Guests enjoyed the spectacle of 250 antique vehicles, hot rods, muscle cars and other classic machines that lined the downtown streets. The third annual event, presented by title sponsor URW Community Federal Credit Union along with Old Dominion Electric Cooperative and numerous door prize sponsors, ran from 3-6 p.m.

With near-ideal fall weather, hundreds of car enthusiasts — both those who brought their vehicles to show off, and many more who checked out the display — had a great time in town, said Destination Downtown South Boston Executive Director Tamyra Vest.

“We were lucky to have gorgeous weather and had a fabulous event. Friends and families enjoyed walking around looking at the amazing showcase of the best classic cars in the region,” she said.

Vest added that she talked to participants from Oxford, Gretna, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Powhatan, Clarksville, Brookneal, Danville and Roxboro who brought cars, trucks, motorcycles and even a powerboat to display in the Cruz-In.

She expressed appreciation for the support of the volunteers from the Old School Car Club and the Tinkers Car Club as well as the many businesses that donated the 102 door prizes for the event.
