Durand Mi big summer times fest around railroading in this little town every year.
They also hold a couple car shows every year, spring dust off and the end of summer one in September.
Now they are attempting to get a evening cruise going. Last night was the first one I was told. then later told no it is a mid week car show. What ever they want to call it it was a enjoyable time, not to hot and a nice breeze blowing.

What they did fail to do is factor in all the evening cruise nights for Wednesday in the 100 miles surrounding area.
Turn out was near 50 cars. A well established evening cruise night was less than 25 miles away, another about 50 miles out also.

The town depot.



A caboose in the park they are developing.

I like the color.




This Chevy is for sale.




Ed's beautiful 65 Chevy, I like his Buick Grand Sport much better.




All I know it is some sort of Chevy and the owner was not around.




Yes at one time many of the town folks made a living off thre rail road. There is still a rail from Detroit going to Grand Rapids, From Flint going to Chicago One more that goes north.

I had a 64 Riviera Gran Sport with the Wildcat 465. Buick cheated trying to make their engines sound bigger, by badgeing them with the foot pounds of torque they produce, in stead of the CI. The Wildcat 465 was really a 425 Nail Head. Mine was all factory original with 2 four barrels, finned aluminium "Buick" valve covers, chrome air cleaner, duel exhaust, and posi. I loved the Skylark body, but in 64 the biggest engine was a single 4 barrel 400. The Riviera was a bigger car but with 390 HP would still run 14 second quarter mile times. that was one of the few cars that I've owned that I miss. It's also one of the few non Mopar cars that I miss. That and my 39 Ford coupe. but you can't keep them all.

Thanks for the pics, love a sunny day and shiney cars.

Thanks for the vid. I always planned to take my Cuda coast to coast when I get it back on the road. Don't know if I'll ever make it. By the time the car is done, I won't be able to push in the clutch.
