After our big event on Saturday Night at the Dromana Drive In, the March Cruise Night came around very quickly! We did manage to get reorganized and set up in time although all the LGC members were moving a little slower than normal. We did however see another great range of cars cruise in as the pictures below show. We also managed to find a couple a LGC Cruisers lucky enough to win an annual subscription to Australian Street Rodding [thanks to Graffiti Publications] and a LGC Race Parka. Didn’t have any difficulty finding three entrants to collect AC Delco car care packs in the nights entrant’s draw as well. Thanks also to Johhny Z’s for adding some of their T shirts to the prize packs. Last ‘daylight saving’ cruise night next month. Don’t miss it.
Where do you start reporting an event that has so many great aspects that any review will end up reading like a novel! So in an attempt to keep things simple, here’s an attempt to cover what happened.
A cool change after a couple of days of hot weather resulted in some cool cars cruisin to Mornington’s Lifestyle Centre for another Peninsula Cruise Night.
John Coogan picked up the wash bucket filled with ICE care car products supplied by Turtle Wax by being selected as the night’s best presented car. His black ZC Fairlane sparkled from top to bottom. Congratulations John.
Our thanks to all those who supported our fund raising effort by donating $10 to receive a LG C ‘Back to the Drive In’ T shirt. We sold 80 shirts and will be making a donation of $800 to the ASRF’s ‘Rodders helping Rodders Fund’ as a result.
Our thanks to Rohan & Leanne Hutson for their contribution to Let’s Go Cruisin’ since its inception. They initiated the popular Mid Winter Cruise, were key supporters of Santa Cruz becoming the successful event it has and are sponsors of LGC through their business, The Radiator Workshop in Mornington. Pressures from running a business and a young family has required them to scale back their involvement in LGC. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing them at future LGC events.
Great day, max numbers of cars great weather, lots of public about as good as we could hope for.
With just about perfect weather, our January Cruise Night attracted nearly 500 cars, in fact we were busy finding parking spots for entrants cruisin’ in from around 6pm on.
The countdown to Santa Cruz 2010 was interesting as the LGC all checked the latest weather forecasts for the Tuesday. But by 5 o’clock cars were rolling in.
Melbourne is experiencing some of it’s wettest weather for years and unfortunately the Rod & Custom Picnic and Pegasus Swap were victims of this but we got lucky with hardly a drop of rain all day. And a big day it was with many cruisers arriving early for the Cup Carnival.
First cruise night held in daylight saving months for this summer, a clear sunny afternoon, the Sober Mule’s roast beef rolls and the promise of lots of chrome bumper cars all added up to another enjoyable gathering of car enthusiasts at the Peninsula Lifestyle Centre.
