March 15th to November 1st 04:30 PM to 09:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Bank Street, Downtown Decatur, AL
Contact: b.a. king



The city has decided to add a cruise in to their 3rd Friday event in down town Decatur. They hope to pattern it after the Gadsden Cruise In. For the time being it will be held on Bank Street just down from the old bank building. When all road work is done on 2nd Ave close to Princess Theater, it may move up there. It will start about 4:30 -5:00 p.m.-ish and go to about 9:00 p.m. Bring the wives as there are antique shops, Civil War museum, Tenn Valley Pecan Co, and more. Restaurants are A Little Slim, Simp Mcgee's, Tim Buck 2 deli shop. They are working on getting more food vendors in for the cruise. If you know of food vendors have them contact me.

The old state bank parking area should be open for photo ops if you so desire. We hope to be able to park in the very middle of the street like Gadsden, but must leave a fire lane. Work with us as this was done on very short notice. Ya'll come. Hope I covered it all.

Is this for classic cars only?

My GF and I just so happen to have both of our GT/CS mustangs ('08 and '09) clean today and we were looking for a place to take a drive.

I was a little confused about this event. I though it was a meet but apparently it was far more organized. And then bummed out when I shined up my car only to see a sign that said "Classics and Antiques only".

Yet somehow this guy got in.

Now on to the real deal.

I'm pretty sure I shot this Mustang at the Hooters show last fall and it still looks good.

This Hotwheels style Mustang was pretty wild. Not exactly my taste but very worth checking out. A ton of time and attention was spent on it.

And finally as I was leaving Decatur I got to see this very pretty ZL1. Only the second one I have seen in person.
