Cruisin' Boca Style!

Fabulous cars, beautiful people, sunshine and blue skies, and even money raised to benefit TriCounty Humane Society…this was the scene at Cruz-N-America’s Open Car Show, held at Royal Palm Place in downtown Boca Raton, FL on Sunday, May 1st.  Hundreds of spectators admired the show-stopping collectible cars, featuring exquisite engineering, gleaming chrome, and meticulous attention to detail…just think of everything from convertibles to dragsters, hot rods to low riders, stocks to customs and all of them hot!

There were so many gorgeous cars, and some of our favorites included a 1974 Silver Pantera, chromed out to the max, a 2007 Black Roush Mustang (actually signed by Jack Roush and one of only 7 black ones produced that year), the famous red and white Starsky & Hutch car, and a blue and orange Mosler that looked positively wicked.

The winner of “Best In Show” was a magnificent 1939 Orange Lincoln Zephyr Coupe.  Talk about finely polished, glamorous and low to the ground!  When it was introduced in 1939, the engine was known to be 267 cubic inches V12 and delivered 110hp power. The altered grills and prominent lights, along with the fog lighting, made it attractive to the customers; the rear end of the car was slanting downwards, and also possessed a huge trunk along with the flowing lines…check out how the rear wheels are enclosed in the skirts.

Watch for more news, as word has it that they are going to be having other car events at Royal Palm Place the second Sunday of each month…in the meantime, we hope you enjoy these photos from the show!
