Going to a car cruise can be a lot of fun. Owning a collector car is definitely fun. Meeting great people is the best and that is just what car people are, the best. The Murfreesboro Hot Rod Club has some great people in it and visitors from all over Middle Tennessee come out to the cruise every Friday night during cruise season.
On May 7, 2010 no one had more fun than our group of car guys who usually all park together, share food and stories. This night was very special because husband Bill Wassel, with the help of George Houk and a bunch of other car guys, presented Bill’s wife, Bettie, with a restored 1968 Cougar just like they purchase new in 1968.
This group of friends worked for over a year putting the car together and it was done just in time for the big reveal at the first cruise of the year. Take a look at this video to see all the fun and tears.
