My photos for this event are now at this web page and I only have one more event to edit to complete my 2012 season!
Dennis the ‘Big Bopper DJ’ emceed and the Claremont Drive band performed oldies music. Great night and a mostly full parking lot for the next to last Cozzi Cruise night of the season. It seemed like Mustang night … they were everywhere. This is a link to my teaser gallery and my music section is here.
I met Dick and his 1947 Buick Special at Downers Grove earlier this year (perhaps 10 Aug). It ‘sports’ a ‘straight eight’. The car is almost ‘all original’ except for the reupholstered front seat and radial white wall tires.
Carl is a very familiar face with his blue 1969 Mustang but I just got a chance to introduce myself. He’s had this vehicle since 1975. The motor is a 347 with a 4 barrel carburetor. He has driven the car 5,000 miles a year. Although it’s a street car, he has drag raced the car and his best time was 12.2 at 112 mph. (see more)
Tom brought his Coronado Red his 1961 Pontiac Bonneville convertible with factory Tri-power and bucket seats (rare). I’d first met him at Westchester and saw a very close match to this car at Riverside on Sunday. George’s ’60 Coronado Red Bonneville (in my Riverside teaser gallery) had a four barrel carburetor; George was surprised that I knew the color. We concluded there are three of these vehicles in the area. Unfortunately for me, Tom left before I could employ my tripod on some night shots of his vehicle.
