Emerald Coast Cruizin Event Schedule and Giveaway

by November 6, 2012 • 31 comments

This year’s Emerald Coast Cruizin event is moving, but you can still expect the same huge turnout of awesome hot rods, rat rods and classics.  In years past they’ve had thousands of chromed out, polished show-stoppers and this year their new gulf-front venue will make it all the more fun.

Driving around the beach you can already see a sampling of some of the fun cars that will be here this weekend, and vendors will start rolling in today.  Below is a full schedule of events for this weekend.

We will be in the area Thursday and look forward to attending the Emerald Coast Cruizin event like we did last year. The timing is great, once again. We have a classic car we show up here in the Chicago area each summer and I just attended my first Mecum Auction ten days ago, so Emerald Coast Cruizin will be a nice adjunct.

I would love to win the free tickets and wear the ORIGINAL sweat top purchased at the Sandpiper for the first Cruizin event. Our relatives have come from Scotland to be part of the fun, my brother in law purchased his first classic Jaguar this year and i know that they would really appreciate being part of this event which would be a great 40 wedding anniversary treat for them.

Theres nothing better than spending the day with your son at a cruise in – talking about life cars, trucks, and what it was like you were a kid – awesome, awesomw bonding time and experience. I encourage everyone out there if you dont have a son (or daughter) find a child and broaden there horizons.


24 travie nail November 7, 2012 at 11:22 am

with a couple of free tickets, we could afford to bring the whole family, with 5 of us its not easy sometimes, I know you guys no what I mean lol – thanks for a great show!
