Default Toronto Cruse Night

Weekly "Cruses" are very popular through out North America and some will draw between 50 to 200 cars. In the Toronto area there are about 8 each week with a great cross section of cars and bikes.

These are photos that I took last summer at a regular Wednesday Cruise in a small town about 30 miles from Toronto. Saw some interesting cars, met some interesting people and had a great meal.

I drove my friends Bentley and had a great time. We had to leave early as he wanted to go to a country auction close by where he finds all kinds of interesting "Stuff". Someone stole his Flying Bentley rad ornament so he fitted up a "Ferrari" one.

The 29 Model A ford was particularly well restored.

Did your friend manage to get the Flying Bentley Ornament for his car or is he still looking for it ?

Excellent pictures John
Good to see the vintage car line up nicely restored, I guess there are many lovers for them in Canada as well
