Cruisin' club for all makes & models

I received a call from blackie66 today about trying to get another cruisin' club started for all makes and models. For us in the Decatur-Hartselle area, we did have one for many years (Just Krusin of North Alabama), which has slowly disappeared. The monthly cruises on the back roads of Alabama, Tennessee, etc. were great. As well as cruisin to events and cruise-ins together.

Is there any interest in getting another one started?

We have looked at the past calendars, and when there are several events on a Saturday within short driving distrances, it is fun to meet up, cruise together and hit one in the morning that starts at 8 or 9am, one in the afternoon for the ones that do not get over until 3 or 4pm, and then the evening cruise-in at 6pm.

These are the times when we look for the events that have the special lower entry fees for non-judged, or just wanting to park our special rides inside the event, but not wanting anything else.

Any input? Thoughts?

Thanks, Marsha

I think this is already happening so a certain extent as like-minded people exchange numbers and stay in touch other ways. Small groups of friends that attend events together and enjoy cruising together. The Central Alabama Rodder's Society based out of Jasper, Alabama is one of the few groups still left that still has organized cruises.

I'd be up for supporting a Huntsville Car Scene.com group that would like to meet and head to several events each weekend. I think it would be pretty cool. Everyone pick a place to meet and a general route of what events to check out on a given weekend. Sounds like fun to me.

Yes, I know there are clubs like the Vette & Miata clubs that have their monthly or quarterly cruises. And the small groups of friends that cruise together, which we have here in Decatur. But blackie66 is looking for a club near him, like the previous Just Kruzin and the Crossroads Cruisers out of Snead, that are open to all special rides and that get together and cruise the back roads every so often for fun and enjoyment, as well as meet up and cruise to the events together. In past cruises with these 2 clubs, could have up to 50 rides, all different years, makes & models - no two the same. Impressive traveling down the road.

So if there is something like this in the Huntsville area, need to let blackie66 know. Thanks

There's a lot of people that wake before 8am, especially on Saturdays since the site gets slammed from 6am to 9am. Lots of people out and about early in the morning!

Unfortunately, there's nothing like this in the local area besides the Knucleheads and the Alabama Gang of the Hot Rod Power Tour last year.

Why do you need a club to do this? Just post up in general talk about cruising and see what happens from there. The mini truck clubs are always holding cruises to shows whether it's 30 miles or 3000. They've gone from SoCal to Central Mississippi for years and years now. Just takes a bit of motivation to ask and advertise.

Yes, I needed to re-phrase that. Instead of the word club, should have stated group. Just Kruisin was more of a group that just liked to get together often and cruise around the back scenic roads. Usually once a month picked a meeting place and took off from there for the day. Stopping at places of interest and then to eat together. Had a relaxing and good time. Not necessarily an organized club. But everyone was connected through their emails and/or phone calls, and web page. And anyone with a special ride was always welcome to join any of the cruises. They could have a '30s coupe cruisin right along with a '70s muscle car, and all in between.

This is what blackie66 is most likely looking for.

We know there are those out there that do get together, but sometimes the information and details do not get out to all that may be interested.

And that's why I created this site--to help get this information out there. But like Grant said, people have to get it out there for it to be noticed. You can only do so much with your personal friend network on fb.

Yes, you are, Samir. Thanks.

So with that said, if anyone has any plans for cruisin for the day, and especially will welcome ALL years, makes & models, please do list - get the information out there. There are ones out there that are looking for those get togethers and cruises.

Sometimes I definitely need to hear this. Thank you. And feel free to post in this thread--it's what I use as my motivation when I feel blue:

I don't think he meant it like that at all. I think your idea has a lot of merit for sure. I think the definitely of 'club' is what's a bit confusing here. 'Club' to us youngins means something with dues, meetings, etc. But to a lot of the classic cruisers, it's just a group of people hanging out together.

I think Grant was referring to the former definition rather than the latter. Just a misunderstanding. It happens from time-to-time when you put enthusiasts from 5 generations on one forum.

First turn off your caps lock. Second I don't see how GrantH was talking down to you at all.

This post was only meant to get word out to other car enthursiants and cruisers to get together, to do more cruisin together. Whether it is for a day long cruise on the back roads, an afternoon short cruise, to/from an event or to/from an evening cruise-in. For all years, makes & models. Whenever there is an event, if someone that is going would take charge and post a meeting place for others prior to and cruise together to that event. It is great cruisin up to an event with 25+ classic cars & trucks and seeing the looks of the event personnel and participants already there. I miss doing this more often. We have had some great times and look forward to more.

This is so fun--like the time we all went to the drive-in.

But it's pretty easy to organize if it's going to an event. Like Grant said, just get in an event thread and pick a place that everyone meets up at before heading to the event.

It used to bother me, but then I remembered that I used to do it too back in the day. I actually hate typing in upper and lower case. I grew up on DOS.
