Class of 2005-Sneak Preview #5!

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

 

After weeks of hard work behind the scenes (and one week of teasing here on this site), today is the big day-the official launch of our first book, “Class of 2009”!

For anyone who can make it through the snow (yes, it is currently snowing in Winnipeg as I write this) the launch party is at the Pony Corral restaurant’s downtown location, with the doors opening at 7pm.  You can buy a book and get it signed all night, not to mention getting the chance to draw for one of our exclusive line of Hot Wheels toys.  These little cars aren’t available in stores, and we’re sure not selling’em-you have to come down, buy a book, and take your chance at winning one.  And if you don’t win?  Well, you’ll be stuck with a book full of pictures like this:

Helene Kuhl's little red 1st-generation CorvetteHelene Kuhl’s little red 1st-generation Corvette at Altona MB’s “Car Show in the Park”

'63 Split-Window CorvetteAn original ’63 split-window Corvette.  It would be the only year for extravagances such as the faux-hood vents and split rear window.

'64 Corvette engineThe impeccably-clean 327-cubic inch small-block V8 engine from a ’64 Corvette.

24 hours of LeMans & 50th Anniversary C5's

A 24 hours of LeMans special edition and a 50th Anniversary special edition C5 Corvette pose for pictures behind the Manitoba legislature buildings.

Ford F700This Ford F-700 was once a derelict, abandoned Manitoba Hydro work truck. Now it’s the biggest thing at cruise night…

International Pickup TruckNow a small part of a smaller part of the big Italian company that owns Ferarri, International was once a proud builder of pickup trucks like Wayne Linkon’s guitar hauler.

Early 40's Chevy truckThe 1940’s saw the Chevrolet truck division get their longest option list yet-three choices of engine, and two transmissions.

Cruise Night Comes to an EndWhen the sun starts to dip, it’s time to wrap up another Sunday’s cruising and head home.

That’s it for today, but don’t forget to come down to the Pony Corral tonight at 7pm.  Even if you don’t pick up a copy of the book, it’s a great opportunity to meet other gearheads, and have a good time at a great restaurant.  And if you do plan on picking up another copy, it’s probably the most “glamorous” way to get yourself a signed copy of the book!

Haven’t had enough?  Check out our Facebook page to catch up on some of the great show coverage, and see what other readers are driving.  And if you want to be the first to catch our updates, come stalk follow us on twitter:  twitter.com/cruisefever.  Until next time, please cruise responsibly!
