Bishop Arts First Thursday to feature classic car show

As part of its First Thursdays series, the Bishop Arts District will host “Cruise Night” Nov. 4, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., featuring classic cars from the Classic Chassis Car Club.

Merchants say they expect to fill at least two blocks of the urban historic district with lacquered fenders, polished chrome, white-wall tires and leather upholstery.

Classic Chassis Car Club is the organizational sponsor for the event and club members will furnish more than two dozen cars to anchor the it. Members of the general public are also encouraged to bring their special “rides.” In keeping with the club’s membership policy, “Cruise Night” is open to all pedigrees of collectible vehicles, from restored classics to brand-new exotics, from art cars to vintage two-wheelers.

Vehicles will be displayed between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. in reserved parking spaces along Bishop Avenue and Seventh Street. Early arrivals are welcome, and car owners need not remain for the entire duration of the event. There is no entry fee and no competition.
