This is becoming one of the biggest events for antique cars in the USA.The event plays out much like a week long Mardi Gras parade would now today is day one of the event this year and they were hoping to get 10K per-registered much less those that just show up!The roads and sides of the streets are still bare some but by Tuesday it will be full.The pics I have tonight is just to convey the atmosphere of the event I also have the local sponsors website. 

Welcome to America’s Largest Block Party.  Cruisin’ The Coast® began in 1996 as a festival to celebrate antique, classic and hot rod vehicles, nostalgic music and related events.  374 vehicles registered that first year and in 2017 we had 8,308 registered vehicles.  Car enthusiasts from 40 states plus Canada, Germany and Puerto Rico arrive on the Mississippi Gulf Coast once a year to showcase their rides and to cruise our beautiful 30-mile stretch of beach-side highway with designated stops in Bay St. Louis, Biloxi, D’Iberville, Gulfport, Pass Christian, Ocean Springs and Pascagoula. Each venue is set up as a mini festival with a stage for live bands, reserved parking for registered cruisers, spectator parking, and vendors for food and event merchandise. Registered cruisers will receive an ID card in their registration packets to exhibit  all week in their car’s front window; this ID allows entry into the venues where reserved parking is available. A program with maps will also be part of the registration packet so cruisers can plan their individual schedules as this is an open cruise – events are scheduled and you decide which ones you are interested in attending.  Our week long event includes cruise-ins, a Salute To Our Veterans event, car auction, swap meet, car corral, and a parade. Spectators are welcome and will find that our cruisers love to talk “old cars.”

Today was wild so Many Cars unreal.The video is from one of the guys at work but it's Jimmy Johnson's road racer that he won the Pocono Race with and you are hearing the Hendrick Engine.The car idles @3000rpm and jerks like a MF all it wants to do is run he barely gave it the gas at the turn it started sliding and moving out.:D

:rofl:I’m sure that thing was plated and insured for that little drive on the road.  
 

Afterthought.  If they had caused an accident, lawyers job would be easy.  Go after everyone that has a sticker on the car.
