The Rod Run didn’t officially start until Friday, but there were already a lot of cars in town when we arrived on Thursday, and after getting some dinner at Big Daddy’s Pizzeria, we cruised along the Parkway a few times.
It was a beautiful evening, and we were enjoying our cruise with the top down on the Jeep, especially Bryce, our chauffer.
The Parkway was already getting crowded,
but nothing like later in the weekend!
The parking lots were starting to fill up, too,
but some of the cars were cruising while they still could!
The guys did some more cruising on Friday after dinner, but I didn’t go with them, and Saturday was our “Car Day” . . . all day!
We lucked out and found a shady parking spot at a bank at the far end of the Parkway, and from there we walked . . . and walked!
There were so many cars to look at . . . and most of them had “For Sale” signs or prices in their windows.
Bryce still likes his Bugs, but is starting to feel a need for speed, too!
I like the pretty colors and unique vehicles . . . like this one!
There were lots of pretty cars!
Some of them are just so cute – old station wagons,
and Hippie Busses!
There were several Jeeps – this was probably the prettiest one,
and this was probably the oldest!
We walked along the Parkway on one side of the road until we reached the point where the guys had walked to the night before, then we crossed the road and walked back the other way. we stopped at Baskin-Robbins for some ice cream, where we got the skimpiest cones we’ve ever had!
There were lines of cars in every parking lot,
and some of the hotels gave their guests premium space along their driveways and on the lawns.
Nicolas could have walked and looked at cars forever . . . but I was done! I left them to continue walking, while I went back to the Jeep to sit in the shade and read a book on my phone.
A few more of their favorites . . .
It was an absolutely beautiful day, and the guys were in their glory with all that shiny metal around!
