Cannon Cruisers’ Annual Big Cruise

More than 140 classic cars hit the road for the Cannon Cruisers Annual Big Cruise on July 31.

More than 140 classic cars hit the road for the Cannon Cruisers Annual Big Cruise on July 31.

The Cannon Cruisers’ annual Big Cruise drew more than 140 classic cars to Cannon Falls Friday evening (July 31).  Participants enjoyed perfect weather for the Welch Valley cruise and spectators lined the route as the cars left town (particularly in the parks, downtown and around the Dairy Inn). The Cruise not only gives participants a chance to display their vehicles, it also serves as a fundraising event for the Cannon Falls Community Food Shelf.  Watch this page for an update on funds and food raised during their year Cruise.

At the Big Cruise, there's always someone ready to tell you where to go.

Cannon Cruisers Visit the “Candy Store”

mANKATOLOGOOn June 27th, the Cruisers put the rubber to the road, taking their “classics” out for a truly classic cruise – an approximately 150 miles round trip to Mankato, where club members toured Unique Specialty and Classic Cars (1000 South Victory Drive) and enjoyed dinner at the Wow Zone Family Entertainment Center (2030 Adams Street).

Thanks to Jay and Jeff for the tour.  Clearly, if you are looking for a classic – and are not looking to undertake a frame-off restoration of your own – Unique Classics is worth a stop.

Just a few samples from their current inventory: a 1961 Chevrolet Corvair; 2009 Corvette z51; 1931 Essex Super Six; 1955 Packard Clipper; 1992 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am; 1924 Ford Model T; 1985 Porsche 928A.  Unique buys, sells, trades, and consigns vehicles and also offers service, restoration, and detailing.  Needless to say, club members were like kids in a candy shop.  Following their visit, the touring group went to the Wow Zone Family Entertainment Center for dinner

It was a great day to get out on the road and visit the “car store.” The only hitch was a hiccup with our cruise leader’s GPS.  Hey, with classic cars wouldn’t real maps be more appropriate anyway.

Early version of GPS - hiccup-free.

Never let it be side that the Cruisers are adverse to good food and beverage.

Back to the ’50s Weekend

or “When We Were Young”bbtta

Club members enjoyed the recent (June 19-21) Minnesota Street Rod Association “Back to the ‘50s Weekend” at the State Fair Grounds.  The event was a great success, with nearly 12,000 participants registering their “classics.”  Here you can see the Cannon Cruisers site, near the Horticulture Building.

Bob Bryan made is first trip to the BTT50’s – after 40 years in the process of restoring  his 1934 Ford four-door. In the “It’s a small world” category, a previous owner of the car stopped by to talk with Bob after recognizing his long-gone vehicle.
