For some it seems like there's not much else to do these days with all of our modern entertainments and venues closed down by the pandemic. So, Steve Trimble decided to go old school.
“We’re just dustin’ off the old muscle cars and classic cars," says Trimble, who used to organize Noland Road cruises back in the day.
Now, Trimble and many others have dusted off an age-old tradition and updated it for this new pandemic era, calling out car enthusiasts on Facebook to come join the Quarantined Cruisers of Noland Road.
As it reads in the group's About section: "Bringing back the social life at a distance. Showing off those rides and reliving the good old days. Show these Youngsters how we did it before (the) iPhone."
These Saturday night cruises show that something old can be new again. And cool. Or... fire. Or... whatever the youngsters say now to express awesomeness.
“It’s a rare opportunity for these kids to be able to see all these classic cars and appreciate them," says Trimble. "And to try to find something, you know, that’s not an electronic device to keep them entertained.”
The Noland Road quarantine cruisin' has quickly became quite popular.
Trimble says they're considering finding a larger place to gather in case they grow too large.
So, nothing to do on Saturday night? Why not take in a good ol' fashioned cruise up and down the boulevard.
