The Altamont Cruisers cordially invite you to our monthly Cruise-in held on the last Saturday of the month, May thru September from 4pm to 7pm.
Recently, somebody asked “what is a
Cruise-In”? Obviously, everyone isn’t aware of what they are. Back in
the days when we were new to cruising, and cars in general, we would
gather in some parking lot between laps up and down the “strip” and swap
stories about ourselves and our cars, and some of them were even true,
more or less. The cooler guys would pop their hoods to show off their
new chrome valve covers that they had just bought from Grand Auto to
dress up their engines. Our Cruise-Ins are kind of like that, except now
many of us bring our families.
We park our rides, pop some of our hoods, and sit back and listen to the
oldies played by our DJ’s, Mike & Lydia, or we wander around and look at
all of the great cars that show up, and like the old days, it doesn’t
cost anything. And, like the old days we swap stories about ourselves
and our cars, and some of them are more or less true, but like the
stories that fishermen tell, they get embellished over time.
It is also a great place to come for dinner or something to drink; there
are restaurants for every taste. There is plenty of room, and it is easy
to find at the Chardonnay Shopping Center, 4010 East Avenue and we will
have the music going from 4pm until 7pm (we even have a map). A
Cruise-In is more or less like that..
