The last few Corona Cruises I attended were with the Hatboro Cruisers (check out Facebook). Just met at some larger parking lots for a couple of hours... but any excuse to cruise is a good one.

Up here in Ontario-they have cancelled nearly all car shows-I get a newspaper publication listing all events-even shows in August and September have been cancelled-sure miss the spring swap meets!
Stay Safe!
Keep on Cruising!

The large Iola, WI car show/swap has been cancelled. They hope to have a swap meet only maybe in fall. Other smaller shows have been cancelled too. I guess as the summer moves on things could change for the better or worse. Thank the Lord for cruisin' for sure.

I was practicing: I backed my 70 out of the garage, Parked it in the driveway, Set up my ( new last year) All Alum. folding chair behind the 70, Pulled up the side tray, Then an adult beverage was set into the chairs cup holder, Put on my straw hat, Then sat for a while!
My large collie came to visit ( Her name is " Chevelle "), Gave her a treat, The radio in my garage was blasting oldies & old country ( I have 2 old Kustom BAND) speaker columns mounted between the 2 X 12 in the ceiling, 4-12" in each column, OH YEA, It can get loud.)
Time to go home, Put the chair in the back of the wagon, Drove back into the garage, Then shut down the music and closed the door. Hey it was a nice cruise, My wife said " You are a few fries short of a " Happy Meal "......:laugh:

I'm putting together another "Screw the Quarantine" cruise for next weekend here in PA. About an hour north of Philly.

The first one I did had about 10 cars, the second one had almost 30. My most recent had well over 50 cars and a few cops showed up...all they did was walk through the parking lot looking at the cars.

I live in Bucks County PA. Our DA has specifically stated that he will NOT prosecute anyone over all of this nonsense. I have several buddies who are cops at the state and local level and they've all stated that they have orders to not hassle people.

I've looked several times for the section in our Constitution that says that the government has the right to suspend our freedoms and liberties over a virus and it's simply NOT there.

I'm not going to live in fear. If people are scared....then stay home, but don't expect others to live in fear.

You guys in PA have your heads on straight. I'm thinking about an invitation only show 'n' shine/barbecue on my grounds this summer. Car folks only. And if any Jay Inslee NAZIs show up, they will be escorted off the property.

Bob, I've been doing just like you! Not quite as much fun, but sure saves on gas! My neighbors must like rockabilly music, none have complained... yet.

The Loafers of Hannibal Mo have postponed our May show until September 19th. I hope this covid mess is under control enough by then that car shows can resume. I sure don't want to miss the Midwest Regional at KC in September.

OK so I'm a member of a local Facebook page called the Hatboro Cruisers. It's run by a woman and her husband who are big car enthusiasts. She has a 69 Camaro RS ragtop and he has 2-3 cars. If you "like" their Facebook page, it will keep you updated on all the local cruise nights.

This Sunday the 31st, they are hosting a cruise at the Oaks Diner on Rt 611 in Pipersville PA from 10:00-2:00. It's probably about 5-10 miles north of Doylestown in central Bucks County. The weather for Sunday is sunny and 73 which is downright perfect.

Some of the more notable events following this Sunday's cruise are the Hatboro Cruisers 1st Friday Cruise (June 5th starts at 5:00)which is always the 1st Friday of the month being held in Warrington PA. Saturday the 6th there's a Cars N Coffee at Fabspeed Motorsports in Ft Washington PA from 9:00-12:00. Supposedly there is a Lancaster PA based Cars N Coffee group that is going to attend. Then the following Saturday (June 13) is the cruise at the Wal Mart in Harleysville PA which is HUGE. It brings out over 500 cars if the weather cooperates, and it's always the 2nd Saturday of the month. So far, these events have NOT been cancelled. But for most of us with classic cars, they are weather dependent. The mindset is come if you want and if you don't feel safe, then stay home.

Most car show organizers and race track promoters around here were quick to cancel everything for this year, so it's very likely that nothing will happen this year... :crying:
