Burnout Changes Time from 9:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

March came in like a lion, so we're hoping it will go out like a lamb - and give us great weather on March 27.

Burnouts will begin in April - and we've moved the time from 9:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. So mark your calendars!
Be sure to bring some cash to buy 50/50 tickets. We've been giving away hard, cold cash to lucky winners! If you see someone in a bright neon-colored STAFF shirt, ask where you can buy the tickets. Monies raised go to put on future cruise-ins.

Taking the Cruise-in Home With You

It's not necessarily a requirement that Oakboro residents have old cars, but it seems like most do. And they're featured in a new calendar. I really like looking at mine on the wall. When stress hits during the day, I take a gander at Betty and Herman Almond's 56 Chevy and the stress goes away. For an instant, I feel like I'm at the Cruise-in. I envision friends I've met there and the crowds of people who come every month from afar.

That beautiful, bright yellow '56 F-100 Ford pick-up truck that I see every month is the photo for April. It belongs to my friends Jerry and Agnes Crayton. He's the one who actually started this event.

Calendars are $5 apiece and can be purchased during the cruise-in. It's a great way to take a little of it home with you!

March 27 Cruise-in News

Our 2009 Oakboro Cruise-In season has begun and with the weather being in our favor, we expect it to take off as usual on March 27th. This year you can purchase another unique piece of Cruise-In memorabilia. We are offering a calendar complete with picture pages of cars belonging to the folks that have worked to help bring the Cruise-In to the success that it is today. The sale of these calendars and the advertisements in them will help to offset the cost of the Cruise-In.

The cost of this calendar is $5.00. They will be available at several spots on the street at Cruise-In night. You may purchase them at other times at the following Oakboro locations: Rowell’s Screenprinting, Home Savings Bank, Wayside Restaurant, SunTrust Bank, Bank of Stanly and Oakboro Hardware. In Albemarle , you may find them at The Marketplace of Albemarle Antique Mall.

Would you like to feature your favorite antique or classic car in our 2010 calendar? Each 2009 calendar has a insert in it with all the information you will need to do just that. Don’t wait too late, as we have already sold some spots for next year. If you have questions or need a special mailing, please call Becky at 704-485-2065.
