Class of 2009-Sneak Peek #4

**UPDATE** Our fearless retailer, McNally Robinson, is now stocking “Class of 2009” in their online store.  Click here to order your copy today!

It’s not just older cars that get their day in our book, “Class of 2009.”  With the number of motorcycles and recent-model cars running around, it’s hard to imagine any attempt to document the cruising scene without covering these two genres:

Evel Dave Radey's Harley Davidson“Evel Dave” Radey not only rides an Evel Kneivel-themed Harley, he also has the matching Stars & Stripes leather riding suit.

Pinstriped Harley DavidsonIt’s not just cars that are benefitting from the old-skool movement; bikes like this Harley take on a new kind of beauty in flat black and pinstripes.

Rolly's Volks-Suzu-WagenRolly’s, ummmm, “creation” is the bastard love child of a Volkswagen, a Suzuki Katana, and a beer keg.  It was so popular at Sturgis that he had to run every time he parked it, so as not to get mobbed constantly.

Uncle D's AirbrushingThis is just one sample of the awesome work by Uncle D’s Airbrushing.  The local artist is well-known for his crazy medieval fantasy-inspired murals.

2009 Dodge ChallengerThis pre-production model 2009 Dodge Challenger was driven coast-to-coast at least twice to promote A&W’s “Cruisin’ the Dub” cruise nights.  Roger Barnes (centre) was the car’s caretaker for last summer, giving him the coolest babysitting gig of the year.

Mercury Topaz Hot RodIs this Mercury Topaz a hot rod?  Most surveys point to yes…

Supercharged Impala SSThis mid-’90s Impala SS was a stunning version of its ugly-duckling Chevy Caprice cousin.  Sadly, when the Impala SS was brought back earlier in this decade, there was no available LT-1 V8 engine option, like the one in this supercharged beauty.

Pony Corral Cruise NightsThat’s it for today, but there’s lots more to be had in the book, “Class of 2009.”  You can now pick it up at McNally Robinson, you can win it by listening to Power 97.5 fm, or you can do it the glamorous way-come out to the Pony Corral tomorrow night and get your copy from me personally at the official book launch, at the Pony Corral restaurant’s downtown location, 444 St. Mary Avenue, Winnipeg MB.  Not only can you get your book signed, but you’ll have a chance to win one of our limited-edition exclusive “Class Of 2009”-branded Hot Wheels.  These special miniatures will never be available in stores, and I’m not selling them-therefore, the only way to get’em is to win’em.  And the only way to win’em is to buy a copy of Class of 2009!
