Downriver Cruise next weekend!

Who else is going to be out there? I plan on being there in the afternoon sometime. The road is under construction but its looking good. Not a lot of dirt or anything. I will be there in my silver 1995 and with a buddy's 1976 Chevy Monza.

I hope to see someone out there!

Got there at 11:30, grabbed lunch at Arby's around 1:35, got back to Southgate Lincoln around 2:10, left at 3. The construction on Fort Street didn't help! Didn't see James, the Lincoln Club guys arrived much later and left after a few minutes.

Looking forward to the Michigan Ave and Telegraph Rd Cruises.

The storms in WV and southern OH kept me home.. I had to dispatch hazard crews to WV so we could get the power back on.

I was out there but did not see too many people at the Lincoln dealership. It was hot and the construction kept people at home. I had a great time! Too bad the Southgate cops are such jerks.

What time did you get there? I was out of there at 3. Michigan Ave and Telegraph Rd will be better, the city of Wayne, where Michigan Ave splits, is the center of activity for the Michigan Ave Cruise.

Sorry, but I did not make it out. I was out of town until Friday and just needed a day with the family. Hopefully I can make one of the future cruises.

My wife and I went early, did a couple of laps, spent some time in the parking lot at the Super K-Mart, had lunch at the Busy Bee and headed home. Never did see a significant number of cars actually cruising.

I will be getting ready to leave on vacation on Sunday, so will not have time to participate in the cruise this year. But, hopefully those who can get there will have a great time!

I'll be out there early with my 1992 Cougar: any other cougar drivers going to join in? I might have to crash the Lincoln mark VIII party if no-one else joins...

Well, tomorrow is the big day! I'm going out early to see if I can get a spot in the Kmart Parking-lot, or maybe if I see a gathering of Mark VIIIs over by the Lincoln dealership I'll join them. I have a few Tccoa plaques I made up in my back window, so if anyone sees a green cougar with plaques, its me.

I think I noticed MN12/FN10 chassis there... I did see a sweet sounding Mark VIII there as well. How about anyone else?

I was wondering WHERE he is/was! How's things, Roger?

I was at the cruise yesterday, the Lincoln dealership was blocked off with used cars, dunno why. There is still friggin' construction so I guess they're still milking it! I was with the Lincoln guys at the Dollar General lot on the opposite side, just north of the Ford dealership. For pics check out the thread on Lincolns of Distinction, page 2:

http://lincolnsofdistinction.org/vbu...wnriver-cruise

For a little burnout video of Bill's 97 LSC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UT8gVhy--hk

Taken by our very own Mad1stGen using Bill's camera. I can be heard saying "MAS!!" which means MORE in Spanish.

James - that Mark VIII you heard/saw, what color was it?

The 1st Wayne Road Cruise is in 2 weeks on July 13 on Wayne Rd between Joy Rd and Glenwood Rd in Westland, there is no Michigan Avenue Cruise this year, it's been cancelled, and then there's the Telegraph Rd Cruise on July 27. The Wayne Rd event is actually called "The All American Cruise".

I tried to keep an eye out for anyone from the club, but I didn't see anyone. I was stationed at the Southgate Ford-dealership for a majority of the day, and cruised up and down for about half an hour. I wish I saw someone, it was kind of boring by my self...

I saw a white 1986 Mercury cougar in the cruise, so I honked and gave him a thumbs up.
I saw a Pearl 1995-1997 Pearl Mercury cougar with custom rims and smoked out tail-lights on my way home, who pulled in by Sonic
I also saw a pearl Mark VIII at the Lincoln dealership. He pulled in to take some photos of a Teal ford pinto. He also had what appeared to be his father with him, an older gentleman.

Did I describe anyones car?

That was Bill in the white 97 Mark VIII LSC, he's the one in the video I posted above. We were at the Dollar General lot because the knuckleheads at the Lincoln dealership blocked their used car lot with cars. Plus they're still doing road construction in front of there. There's no way you could have known we were at Dollar General, 3 Lincoln Mark VIIIs and guys from the LOD forum.

Yes, a white Lincolns of Distinction script shirt. I have both white and black that I sleep in! The next cruise is the Wayne Rd cruise and then Telegraph Rd as I indicated above. If you come out to those we should park and watch! And cruise of course!!
