Just as the flowers and trees emerge from their wintry sleep, springtime also brings out those shiny classic and antique cars and trucks as nearly each weekend of the month boasts some sort of show or cruise-in or any old excuse to get those hot rods and show cars out of the garage.
We visited with the Cruisers Club of Cedar Hill at their monthly car show at Sabor a la Mexicana restaurant parking lot in Duncanville and even entered our review car of the week into the show.
The Cruisers hold their regular shows on the second Saturday of each month. The Midlothian Classic Wheels club holds its show on the fourth Saturday. Uptown Village in Cedar Hill is now hosting a cruise-in (kinda like a car show but less formal) every third Saturday through fall. Next show is this Saturday, April 19, 4-8 p.m., in the parking lot adjacent to the Pleasant Run entrance to Uptown Village.
The next Cruisers Club event is a benefit show April 19, 1-5 p.m., at 821 Cockrell Hill Road in Ovilla. This annual show benefits the Ovilla Police and Fire Departments. The club’s website is http://www.thecruisersclub.com.
The next Midlothian Classic Wheels event is their annual Walk for a Cure car and bike show, April 26, 5-9 p.m. at the Midlothian Wal-Mart. All proceeds from this show go to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The club’s website is http://www.midlothianclassicwheels.com.
A couple of new shows coming to the Best Southwest area are sponsored by CarsRoadshow.com. They will host a pair of shows coming up in Cedar Hill. The first is at Pizza Inn, 108 W. Beltline, Sunday April 27, 4-8 p.m. The second show is set for Saturday, May 3, 4-8 p.m. at the Buffalo Wild Wings at 430 E. Pleasant Run Road.
