"Remember the Alamo" Car Cruise 2008

Approaching the downtown area from the east for the car cruise
The Four Corners downtown marked the beginning of the "Remember the Alamo" Car Cruise, sponsored by the Downtown Business Association. A police car blocks the special cruising lane. The cruise was held on July 26 and lasted all afternoon and evening.

The car cruise "lanes"
We're now heading west on Chicago St. (U.S. 12) - the cruise begins! Here you can see the special lanes - the middle lanes are for regular traffic, and the outer lanes are for classic cars.

Cruise lane entrance
Every parking spot downtown was filled by a classic car - perfect for walking the sidewalks and admiring them. In this picture you can also see the special entrance to the classic car cruising lane.

Side streets utilized
Classic cars also could be found on the closed-off side streets.

Classic cars lined up along the street
The cruise continues! (By the way, I took these photos from the passenger side of my car while my wife drove, in case you're wondering about my safety.)

More classic cars lined up on the west side of downtown
Still more cars...
