Lethbridge Street Wheelers 2012: The Cruise

Hot Rod

Every year in Lethbridge we have the Street Wheelers weekend which is a three day festival for car junkies. People flock into town to help celebrate. It is all kicked off with a Friday night cruise. Years ago it was a wild affair with burn outs and impromptu drag races but these days it is a controlled event with a major street shutdown just for the participants. Show and shines are great but it is fantastic to hear the cars as well as see them in motion.

Pontiac Tempest

A first generation Pontiac Tempest (1961 – 1963) which would have originally had the rope drive rear transaxle. This one looks to be converted to a drag car.

Ford Model A replica

There was a lady with a pink sign at the side asking for a burn out. The girls in the Ford Model A replica gave a toot of their ooga horn and said that was all it had. Not sure what the story on the replica is.
