Otis Nice Posted May 2, 2020 Report Share Posted May 2, 2020 I dunno if anyone will be interested or not but I thought I'd share. I made a couple posts in the "what did you see today thread" about this event last month but it appears this is going to become a "thing" and seeing a CBro or 2 post on the FB group page now, the page itself grow to 3k members in about a month, the posts from folks getting all kinds of rides from lowriders, hotrods, classics, modern muscle, lifted Jeeps, bikes, etc, ready to go, and what not I thought maybe some other folks here might be interested. A little over a month ago a fella decided to start up "take back the strip". For those of you that weren't privy to cruising the meh town of Cville from the 90's-TF&TF era it use to be a BIG thing every weekend night. Lot of cruisers, folks parked up and down the strip, etc. Well, he wanted to see that again amidst the shutdown and what not so he made an event on FB, it spread like wildfire, and went down in an amazing fashion. The turn out was more than he or anyone else expected. It was insane...in a good way. All types of vehicles, folks hanging out along the strip in their cars, the bed of trucks, etc, and families just enjoying the show. No incidents. No fuss. No problems. The police and city were on board and although aware they weren't expecting the turnout and even with the occasional tool acting a fool they let things ride and everyone had a great time. It's happening again tomorrow (or today, 5/2/2020) from 6pm to 10pm...ish. On the page you can see the suggested route. It quickly became a great thing as local businesses and food trucks are opening up, a food drive is being done, and what not. I think it's great that after 1 event they've looked at ways to use it to help others. So, that's it. Come out in the trailer queen (if street legal obv), the DD, the fun car, the classic, the show car, on the bike, whatever. Last month I saw an OG TV series Batmobile even. I think this will be happening on the regular from this point forward but time will tell. Just wanted to offer something for like-minded car folks looking to cruise (slowly. Like....REALLY slowly) and see some different rides and enjoy being out and about. Pics from the first event. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
