Car Cruizen!

How does a thrill ride tour through the Blue Ridge Parkway sound with 11 other classic cars?

Sign me up!

There were 12 classics cruising for the day enjoying the excitement of the roaring engine and scenic view of the Parkway. The day started at 8:30 am and ended near 9:00 pm.

The cruising tour took the eager group of enthusiast through the wining and hilly road of Rt. 268 to the Overlook on Rt. 321, which was a remarkable view of the mountain terrain spanning for miles. The day continued with a stop in Blowing Rock for lunch. While the mini parade of 12 classics was leaving the small town visitors were taking photos and lining the street to catch a glimpse. On the way south, traveling on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we stopped at the Linville Falls where the stream of classic cars were getting more attention from visitors than the falls themselves.

The tour continued to Doug Herbert's Performance Parts store. This was a special stop since Mr. Doug Herbert gave a personal tour of his shop, and told the emotional story behind B.R.A.K.E.S, which in a non-profit organization dedicated to the continued hands on education of driving safety for youths. Please visit for more information.

This was a great tour with fellow enthusiast enjoying the beauty of North Carolina! A cruise with fellow enthusiast is a great way to exercise your classic while enjoying the benefits of the hobby. I encourage you to cruise!

See you on the road!
