April 2011 Platte City Cruise may have been a little down on attendance, but there is some great potential
I guess the issue is that Righteous Rides, the car club that organized this event in the past, decided not to be involved this time. So putting this together seemed to fall on the shoulders of one guy, Larry, who enjoys this event too much to see it go.
Larry might need to work on his pre-promotion efforts, but the cruise still has some good bones to work with. There are several sponsors on board already, including All Star Towing, O'Reilly Auto Parts in Platte City, the Leavenworth Cruisers, Bash Excavating, Knighton's Body Shop, Larry's Automotive and Machine, Platte Valley Construction, and Rusty's Auto Sales.
The new name for this event is the Outta Control Hot Rods & Cruisers Monthly Cruise Athon. And there were still a few nice cars and nice people that made it out. Several of them are familiar sights from this event last year, so it is still benefiting from the strength or past events.
In the meantime, check out the photos of the cool cars and trucks that made it out to Platte City on Saturday. In a way, the lower car count was nice, because everyone seemed more friendly and social with a little less hustle and bustle.
