Last Saturday I headed up to Bacchus Marsh to capture all the cruising action with the Marsh Rodders! The local club were going to head up to the small country town of Ballan for a bite to eat first before joining two more clubs already cruising down in their direction! Read More →
Cruising into Queenscliff on Friday afternoon, one got the sense that this was going to be one of those weekends to remember going by the amount of cool rods, customs and classics cruising around! As I pulled into the sports oval, I was greeted by the colourful sight of mish-mashed rows of old school cool mixed with street elite! This was definitely the start of another huge annual Geelong Street Rodders’ Queenscliff Rod Run! with over 600 entries booked in, it could be nothing less than spectacular!
Beer and a barbie traditionally fires up the weekend as it makes for a great opportunity to meet and greet while also collecting your goodies bag from the temporary event central.
Pack the family into the rod, custom or classic and go for a cruise around the coast! Even better when you’re cruising in amongst a veritable smorgasbord of cool rods and rides which is why the Geelong Street Rodders’ annual Koastal Kruise grows in statue each year!
Rod runs are a great opportunity to pack up the family and friends, fire up the the rods and rides, hitch the teardrop van if ya got one and go explore a country town somewhere while surrounding yourself with like-minded people.
The Queenscliff rod run, organised by the Geelong Street Rodders has been a mainstay on the Victorian automotive social calendar for many years now bringing valuable tourist dollars and attention to the small coastal fishing borough of Queenscliff.
Once again a huge turnout of cool Aussie and American rides took part in the Geelong Australia Day cruise! It has become a traditional way for automotive enthusiasts alike in Geelong and the surrounding districts to celebrate our official national day of Australia.
Last Friday night in Geelong welcomed the first of hopefully many Meet & Greet car nights in our picturesque little town. I’ve been told by one of the organisers, Pozo who, along with the help of his saintly partner, Mel that it will be a regular event to be held in a different location each time. This’ll keep it fresh and interesting as the scenery changes with the seasonal weather.
The city of Detroit has had its fair share of kicks brought on by the fallout of the GFC yet in true style that typifies a hard knock city with a motoring history, has managed to pick itself up, dust itself off and host one of the biggest automotive celebrations on the planet!
On the third Saturday of August, more than 30,000 muscle cars, hot rods, custom and collector vehicles came together to take part in what is considered the world’s biggest cruise, The Woodward Dream Cruise. Covering the 31 mile stretch of eight lane highway from Motor city to Pontiac, Woodward boulevard sees car enthusiasts from all over the United States, Canada and internationally come together to recreate what used to take place here in its heyday, cruising the strip! As part of this cruise, The Ford Motor Company have joined forces with the suburb of Ferndale located at the 9 mile marker for the fifteenth annual Mustang Alley. Read More →
On a recent trip to the States, Detroit was one of the places on our itinerary. Upon arriving in Detroit, we had one thing on our mind, to check out this Woodward dream cruise we had heard so much about. Officially not starting till Saturday, we headed to the eight lanes wide boulevard running between Motor city and Pontiac on Tuesday to find people already cruising the strip although small in numbers at this time. By Thursday, the numbers had grown considerably as automotive enthusiasts from across the country and around the world converged on this landmark strip of highway. Read More →
Cruisin nights has hit Melbourne in a big way and leading the way is a Melbourne based club calling themselves Melbourne Old School Cruisers! Utilising the viral ability of Facebook, this classic automotive based club has been able to put on huge cruise nights simply by using Facebook as their way of spreading the word. These cruises gather in large commercial car parks around Melbourne although the club is finding it harder and harder to locate parking lots big enough to cater for their ever popular events. The last one held at Chadstone Shopping complex in Melbourne’s east boasted an impressive gathering of over 3,000 cars! Read More →
One of the many ways to celebrate Australia Day in Geelong was to get your ride out and go for a cruise! This time, over one hundred tough and cool rides gathered at the Cotton On carpark in Seperation st, North Geelong before heading down the coast to the St. Leonards Hotel for a bite to eat, a cool drink and a catch up with friends. The cruise passed through the quiet country town of Drysdale which didn’t know what hit them as classics and modified rides headed through the main street before turning off in one of two directions towards the destination point.
