March Cruise-In - Rain or Shine!

Yep, we're having it - so drive your car here and show it off. Ok, the forecast does have rain in it, but we're hoping it doesn't rain in Oakboro from 3-9 p.m.

Gotta great DJ! Baxter is a super DJ and has fun with the crowd. 50/50 tickets - someone can go home with cash.

You may not know it, but the money we raise at the Oakboro Cruise-In has started going to scholarships to help local kids attend Stanly Community College and learn about automobile technology. Buy a 50/50 ticket and help a kid learn how to fix your car!

Now Car Gal, who puts this Website together, is also working on another cruise-in on Saturday, April 17 in Asheboro. It's a fundraiser with an entry fee of $25. The name of the event is the Cruisin' for Miracles Car Show and Old Time Chili Cookoff. Hey, if you like cooking chili, this might be an event for you, too! Old cars and homemade chili. The Website for the chili cookoff is and that site will take you to the car show - it's actually two events going on at the same time, same place, same day.

Cruise-ins Everywhere

Seems like everyone loves the sexy lines, the curves, the swirls of old cars. I know I do. I was at the stoplight the other day when a precious bright red Corvette pulled up beside me. I don't recall the driver, but I did admire the classy style.

So it's no wonder that towns like Asheboro (April 17) are starting cruise-ins. The one on April 17 will be a fundraiser with Golden Corral for the Children's Miracle Network - and the setting will be alongside the Old Time Chili Cookoff.

I see quite a few of the Asheboro car collectors at the Oakboro show. Small world ...small towns ... pretty cars!
