Just a reminder for everyone within driving distance, Marks Classic Cruise, the biggest weekly Cruise-In here in New England will be running a Camaro/Firebird Theme night this coming Monday, September 12, 2016. All year cars are invited. Rain date is the following Monday night, Sept 19th.
The gates at Marks usually open around 4pm and the event runs until it gets dark. On Mustang night they typically get 250-300 Mustangs, plus another 300-500 other cars. Lets try to top that Mustang number!
Plenty of hot/cold food, ice cream, popcorn, and very often there's live entertainment. If you haven't been to Marks, all the cars are parked on a 5 acre freshly mowed grass field. It's a beautiful setting. Easy to get to, it's right near Bradley International Airport, just a few miles north of Hartford, CT. Use I-91 or I-84 to get to Rt.20. Depending on the weather, some nights 100-1200 rides will show up.
Plan to come out and mix it up with owners from all over New England and the Northeast region. For those who are unfamiliar with Marks, here's a few photos:
Thats an arial shot from Corvette Night... couple hundred Vettes showed up!
Nice arial shot of a packed house night. Probably way over a thousand cars, not counting the spectator parking lot which is adjacent to the show car field.
Last year's Camaro/Firebird Theme Night... Nice Turnout! For you guys with GPS, its 22 Russell Road, East Granby, CT. Always check their Facebook page to make sure the Cruise is on bc wet weather can play havoc with the pasture as far as mowing it. If the field is soaking wet, they'll cancel that night's event.
