Downers Grove Cruise Night 8-31-2012 Season finale post

What a great event for the season finale! Sad the 2012 season had to end. My main take away is having finally met the Bob, owner of the third blue and white 1955 Buick Century with identical paint schemes to John’s two door ’55 Special and Frank’s ’55 Century Wagon. Here are the ‘three (1955 Buick) amigos’.

Three 1955 Buicks with the same two tone paint scheme.

Friends I saw with familiar cars included John (green 1955 Buick – photo here and page here), Joe (green 1969 Roadrunner – page here), Charlie(1964 Corvair – photo here and page here), Geno (1956 Oldsmobile – photo here and page here), Mike (1965 Impala SS – page here and photo here), Trent (1935 Ford – photo here, here and page here), Glenn (black Ford Coupe street rod with a Chevy 409 – photo here), Phil (2006 Mustang with P-51 license plate – photo here).

Cruisin’ at the Downers season finale

Main Street in Downers Grove is a great place for cruisin’ photos, even though the speeds are modest, and I enjoy night shooting so here is my teaser gallery of photos from the event.
