Wood Dale 7-25-2013 Cruise Night

This was the first cruise night of Wood Dale’s 2013 season I’ve been able to attend although I did go to an earlier event and that time I arrived just as ‘the heavens opened up’ with a downpour. Tonight the music was provided by Flashback 50s DJ Tony in his ’57 Chevy DJ booth. Click on the Plus sign in ‘Hear some Oldies Now’ in the Sidebar to listen to the kind of music we heard at the show.

Tom drove his numbers matching, restored original 1960 Corvette; the upholstery is just like original. The motor is a 283 with a 2 barrel.

Rich showed his blue 1962 Pontiac Catalina with a 389 and Tri-power (which could’ve been ordered from the factory) the he’d added.

1956 Mercury

I first saw this ’56 Mercury Monclair two door last year at Downers Grove (8-24-2012) and Russ Jr’s family was having a picnic. Russ Sr. was using the flame throwers. The car has a 302 engine with two 4 barrels so more gas can be dumped through the motor for the flames.

1950 Studebaker

I saw this 1950 Studebaker Champion convertible last year. Were is a hardtop, it would’ve been the one that looked the same from the front and the back; you couldn’t tell if it was coming or going.
