Fultondale, AL Cruise-In Review 5/23/20

This event takes place in Fultondale, AL every 4th Saturday of each month. This is the largest monthly meet in all of central Alabama. We have been to this event numerous times in the past but this day was extra special. The state of Alabama recently lifted its COVID-19 gathering restrictions which made this the first official cruise-in of the year. Car enthusiasts of all types finally felt freedom after being in isolation for so long while not being able to enjoy the camaraderie with fellow hobbyists. The turnout was good despite a passing storm that ended the event early.

This cool rig is a 1964 fire truck rat rod. I forgot who manufactured it but I do remember it has the original diesel engine and the frame has been shortened. The engine makes around 230 HP and 800 ft_lbs of torque.

This custom mid-1960s Chevy truck has too many extreme features to list. It is one of those builds that can only be appreciated in person.

This Roush Stage II Mustang along with the Challenger next to it is owned by Jason and Deidra Trammell. Both are sweet cars but the Challenger is a rare 1 of 1 prototype and has sold at Barret- Jackson in the past. Hopefully, one day the Trammell’s will let us shoot their Challenger and share the incredible story behind it.

This 2001 SS Camaro was super clean inside and out. The owner said he has only had it for a short time. I could tell the previous owner babied this car.

There were a couple of cool Shelby Cobra roadsters in attendance. One of them had a late model engine that looked like it makes some serious power.

John Kelly is the owner of this sharp Plymouth Cuda.

You can’t have an official cruise-in unless you have at least one Chevy Bel Air.

I am not sure but I suspect this S-10 may have been lowered.

Here is a couple of classic Mach 1 Mustangs. That body style is nothing short of legendary.

The Birmingham Mopar Owner’s Club always brings a vast number of vehicles when they show up to events.

Daryl Wilkerson is the owner of this cool 1979 Dodge Ramcharger. I actually thought the top was chopped but Daryl informed me that this model had a removable top from 1974-1980.

There were a few nice imports mixed in with the crowd as well.

This custom Lincoln Continental is wicked.

The Limestone County Mustang Club drove all the way down from Huntsville, AL to make the event.

Matthew Nance is the owner of this hella sweet SN95 Mustang. It has a pushrod 5.0 that he is currently modifying. This car sounded really good when he rolled out in it.

A gorgeous first-generation yellow and black Camaro.

We had our personal vehicles at the event as well. Pat Moon was in his 2005 Honda Accord VTEC project car. I was in my 2004 Corvette Z06.
