The weather couldn’t have been better for a car show!  Headed out this morning and met a couple of friends for breakfast and the made the drive over to Vilonia High School parking lot for the car show.  It wasn’t a huge car show, but they had about 40-45 cars registered.

It’s always good to go hangout at the local car shows and fellowship with your friends, and today was one of those days.  Not to mention that most of our local car shows help out local charities.

Thanks to the members of the Vilonia Car Club for hosting us today… they did a great job!

NSRA Appreciation Day – April 1, 2017

Today was the real first event that we got out to.  As some of you may know, I am also the State NSRA Inspector, a job that I really like doing.  It gets me out, gives me the chance to talk to the car owners and look over some of these awesome cars.

This years Appreciation/Safety Day was held at A&J Collision in Conway.  When we asked the owner if he would want to help with this, he jumped at the chance and we really appreciate everything he did for us.

We ended up with just over 60 cars registered and the Arkansas Safety Team inspected about half of them.  Have the majority of the team at the first Appreciation/Safety day of the year was really great.  I don’t think we have had that many of team in the same place like that in a really long time.  I really appreciate all their work today also!

We have one more Appreciation/Safety Day scheduled for April 29 in Jonesboro and I am looking forward at hanging out there too.  In the meantime, gotta make a trip to the Southwest Nationals in OK City this next week.

Friday Night Kruzn – May 2016

Unfortunately we had to hold Friday Night Kruzn a week early in May, but that didn’t keep you from coming out.  We ended up with almost 60 cars in the Village.  That made for a great night, with some awesome cars, and some great friends.

I just want to say thanks for all those that have supported us this past year at Friday Night Kruzn…

Here are some pictures from May’s Friday Night Kruzn!

Friday Night Kruzn – 2016

2016 is here and I hope each of you have a wonderful time through the holidays and was able to spend some quality time with your family and friends.  Now it’s time to gear up for the 2016 car show and cruise night season.  At StillKruzn, we have already started talking about Friday Night Kruzn and looking forward to kicking it off on March 18, 2016 at the Village at Hendrix.  This year, Friday Night Kruzn is being presented by StillKruzn, Pro Auto Collision and Preston Palmer Studios, and sponsored by the Purple Cow – Conway and ZaZa’s.

 

Just a little history on this little event.  It started in October of 2014, I hosted the first event just to test the waters to see if this was even going to fly.  It seemed to have a positive response, so in 2015 we started it as a monthly cruise night with sponsorships from Pro Auto Collision and the Purple Cow.  Later in the year ZaZa’s and Preston Palmer Studios also came on board.  The first night in March of 2015, we have about 20 cars show up.  In October 2015, we had almost 80 cars in attendance and many spectators.  We are the only cruise night that I know of in Arkansas that has live music.

 

We try to offer things that make us a unique cruise night to stand apart from the others.  The atmosphere of Friday Night Kruzn feels like an old town square, and that is what makes it so cool for me.  Just a gathering of friends, a time of fellowship, and that is what it is all about.  I keep saying, that it’s not about the awards, or even the cars (although it is about the cars a little bit), it is about the people, the friends you make over time.

 

That’s about it…. so we are hoping you will come out and join us for Friday Night Kruzn this year.  I am not sure how we will top last years events, but we will do everything that can to do it!  Hope to see you out there!

North Little Rock Car/Air Show – June 27, 2015

I am not playing catch up trying to get this one posted.  Had some issues with getting logged into the website the past couple of days that didn’t help matters much.  Anyways, on June 27, we headed over to the North Little Rock Airport for their Air and Car show hosted by EAA.  This was my first time at an air show, and it was pretty cool to get to see some of the airplanes that these guys build/restore.  You think that our car hobby is expensive, I don’t want to even know what it takes to build/maintain some of these planes.

It was a pretty warm day to be hanging out on the asphalt tarmac of an airport, but there was a pretty good turnout of cars, about 140 if I remember correctly.
