Last Friday my son texted me asking if we wanted to go to the Kruising Knights Car Show. I said, “Sure let’s do it.” So I washed my Camaro Friday after work, and put a much needed coat of wax on her. My car is not a show car, but it looks good and I love driving it.
Saturday morning my wife and I met our son and daughter-in-law and headed to Central Square, NY. It was a beautiful day for a car show; a little chilly, but very enjoyable. Cruz and Janelle drive their Monte Carlo.
We had no idea what kind of show we were heading to and how many cars would be there. Boy were we surprised. After getting sent the wrong way from our GPS, we found the show by following a nice pink ‘32 Coupe that drove by at an intersection.
The show is held in a small park just outside of town. When we arrived the park was 3/4 full of shiny cars and trucks. We pulled up to the event tent and paid our $5 per car admission. They handed us a bag full of cool things from a flashlight to a nice drink koozie from NAPA. There was also a small program giving us the history of the show.
This was the 11th year for the Kruising Knights Car Club Show. Along with the Kruising Knights, the local Lions Club helps put on this great show.
It was refreshing seeing cars that I have never seen before. Nice quality iron graced the well groomed grounds. We met some very nice people throughout the day and invited them to come to the 7 Valley Street Rods Show on August 20th. A few of them said that they have always wanted to go to that show, so let’s hope they take the drive south.
The Lions Club did a fantastic job with food and drinks. We grabbed a bite to eat and sat under the pavilion while the music played in the background. All kinds of cars were on hand, from antiques, street rods, muscle cars, as well as some brand new cars. There was something for everyone to enjoy.
This was a great find as far as car shows go. Nice job to everybody that helped put this show on. Nice cars and nice people make for a very nice show.
