Hopwell Cruise Night thread
« on: April 09, 2010, 11:45:54 AM »
5pm to 9 pm on the main drag (Rt 518) through Hopewell.

They don't close the road, but they do restrict street parking.  I've stopped at this gathering before and it's a nice little, low-key affair with some interesting cars and food vendors.

If the weather cooperates, I imagine Robyn and I will go with the Volvo and the Spit.  My thought would be to park down by the Lotus dealer, which when I was there, seemed to be where the imported cars congregated (for obvious reasons).  There were 3 classic Mini's last time and a Europa.

Europa?  Nice...

OK, will try to keep this date open.

Weather looking great for Friday! I can get there before 5pm and will try to park as close as possible to the Lotus dealer with either Yoda or Queenie.

Hmmmm - it's also the first of the Jackson Outlet center cruise nights.

10min to Jackson, or an hour out to Hopewell?

Kinda depends on what time I get home from work...

Given that there's a better chance of seeing some more European cars in Hopewell, that's where we'll be headed.  :D

It's definitely looking like a great day to cruise over for a bit.  The Volvo is all washed and ready to go.  The Spitfire is still dusted with pollen and will be staying home (although Robyn did drive it to work... and may have driven it out to Lakewood for a Zaino-fix).

With any luck, we'll be there a little before 5pm as well.  I'm getting ready to leave the office for P-boro now.

If the weather is dry, I think we're going to try to make this.  Hopefully I can park down near the Lotus dealer again.  Last time we went, they told us, as we were getting ready to leave, that they had spent much of their evening talking about my car and having to tell people they didn't know if it was for sale because it wasn't one of theirs.  And here when I parked there I was sure the car would be ignored next to all those beautiful old Astons they have there.  LOL.

The ES is freshly Zaino'ed so she should give the Astons a run for their money again. ;)

Cool!  We'll be looking for you.  Park down by the Lotus dealer.  We'll inundate them with Swedes (or at least two Swedes).  ;D
