Cruisin’ for a Cure 2015
A small group of COTV members spent a very warm Saturday supporting a great cause, finding a cure for prostate cancer, and looking at up to 3,500 hot rods, custom muscle cars, classic cars, trucks, Corvettes and other “specialty” vehicles. (The beauty of a “specialty” vehicle is often in the eyes of the owner alone, as can be seen by some of the photos.)
Leonard Buote and his son-in-law Tony were first to the OC Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa in the black beauty, followed by Rob and Daryl Weber in blue, then Doug Glenore in silver and Steve Glenore in white. The many volunteers, among them Allen Morris, the Regional Exec for the NCCC, guided us to the Corvette parking area so we were all together with a fairly large group from a variety of clubs. We were all in place by 6 or 6:30 and then set out to find coffee for those who needed some caffeine. Shortly after we arrived, we were joined by Doug Barnett, a former COTV member, who parked next to Steve Glenore and proceeded to clean his red addition to the color spectrum to within an inch of its life.
For most of us, this was a chance to see a huge variety of cars rather than to compete for awards. Rob saw some other Willys in the Meguiar’s exhibit, which displayed what a LOT of money can buy and build. We also talked to a man who has TWO blowers mounted side by side, and thus he won the “WHO’S GOT THE BIG ONE” trophy.
After breakfast burritos in the early morning and a lot of walking, the Glenores and Webers headed out at about 1pm into the traffic on the 55, 91 and 15 freeways and the 100+ degree heat of the Inland Empire. We had thought it was hot in Costa Mesa, but the ZR-1 read 108 degrees, so maybe it was really only warm. We will be signing up for next year again, so look on the COTV Calendar to set aside the date on your own calendar to go Cruisin’ for a Cure, September 24, 2016.
