This final event of The Daytona Dream Cruise 2010 was held at the same location where I had directed the vehicle parking the previous day. The venue was down near the one of the many marinas that populate the mainland side of the Halifax River/Intracoastal Waterway.
I had not even arrived at the event when I spotted this cool old Volkswagen Type II in the parking lot of one of those marinas. Of course, I had to stop and get a few images of it.
So this olelongrooffan (I can’t help myself!) was sitting in the driver’s seat of that ole CJ5 that CptSevere likes so much and this cherry ’61 Cadillac Sedan deVille cruises on by. The elderly driver stops and looks lustfully at my ride. “How much?” he asked. “Bone Stock and Five Grand,” was my reply. “Damn, I’m tempted but I would probably lift it, put a V8 in it and ruin that original CJ5,” he said. And then his better half said, “Let’s go George, you are not getting another Jeep!” And that Jeep went unsold that day.
The 347 badge in the opening image of this post was attached to the side of this 64 Comet.
Yeah Hoons, there was a little bit of everything around these here parts that weekend.
If a 1984 Chrysler minivan makes the cut at Hershey, I guess a mid 80′s Fairmont is welcome at the Dream Cruise.
Sorry for the blurriness of this image, my el cheapo 28 dollar ebay camera doesn’t do close up all that well!
I thought this was a clever touch for a radiator overflow container.
And while I am not a fan of the skull of anything, there, apparently, is a large contingency whole like to adorn their cars with them.
And if there are any Hoons reading this who don’t know who the Smokey on this sticker is, right now you need to open a new browser window and Google ‘Smokey Yunick’ and be prepared to become awestruck! Go on, we’ll be here when you get back.
All four of the items in the above four images were on this rat rod.
And Bill Elliott showed up with his NASCAR championship winning 1985 Thunderbird.
I don’t know for sure if the original Mini came in the the drop top version but this one was pretty sweet.
Well, Hoons, that’s it for the Daytona Dream Cruise 2010. This Sunday I’ll be heading to Winter Park, Florida for the annual Concour’s D’Elegance and will definitely be getting some images of that to share with my fellow Hoons. As a teaser, here is a blogpost about the 2009 Concours.
