Sweet Ride

Posted By on Wed, Sep 4, 2013 at 11:37 AM

We love us some vintage here in Humboldt, and nothing says vintage like the rolling roar of a classic car. If you're still jonesing for the smell of diesel after the Fortuna AutoXpo, Cruz'n Eureka is here to help.

This auto-obsessed fundraiser for Boys and Girls Club of the Redwoods hits the road with a poker run from the Eureka Inn to the Fresh Freeze, where everybody's meeting up for the after-party social.

Engines start for the cruise through Old Town at 5:30 p.m. on Friday. No wheels? You can still grease your hair, hang out on the curb with a soda pop and watch the four-wheeled beauties go by.

On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., it's a full-on retro street fair with food vendors, a show and shine (the pinnacle of fancy car ownership — polishing it up and standing around while people circle and admire), raffle and swap meet (another thrill for collectors — the hunting and haggling!).

Have a milkshake, take some photos (go super retro and use an actual camera?) and check out those white walls.
