Twelve hundred cars converged on Middletown on Wednesday, June 15th. It was a gearheads’ dream, and Dave and I were not going to miss the fun. Registration for the cruise started at 4:00 pm, and was open to pre-1986 vehicles, and special interest vehicles with prior approval. Main Street, which has staked a claim to being the widest Main Street in the USA, was packed. Once all the parking spaces were filled, two rows of cars were added along the yellow lines in the middle of the street.
It was good to see Chris and a few of the guys from CTShift.net, who we had originally met at the C3 Car Show back in May. We really appreciated their offer of assistance with aerial shots from on top of an off-road vehicle.
Another familiar face among the hundreds of cruise visitors was Cruisin Photography Digital Auto Art owner Kevin Goodell, who had his superb Grabber Orange Shelby GT Mustang on show.
Among our favorites were a red Porsche 356; a black Ford three-window coupe, looking good with chrome hubcaps, whitewall tires and Moon stickers; and a black-and-flames Ford T-Bucket with a supercharged engine.
We left as the light faded. It was good timing as not long after we hit Route 9, heavy rain fell on Main Street to bring a premature end to the proceedings.
