There's a new cruise in town! Iola, Wis., the home of Old Cars Weekly, is about 13 miles from Waupaca, Wis. For over 10 years, the Burger King fast food joint in Waupaca has been where many of the OCW staffers (and former staffers) cruise to on Wednesday nights. Although publishing deadlines and travel schedules sometimes make it impossible to go to the cruise, there are many Wednesday nights when Angelo Van Bogart, Ken Buttolph, Keith Mathiowetz or myself show up at the Burger King.
This summer, the Culver's Restaurant in Waupaca, which is not far from the Burger King, has started a Thursday night cruise. This is not a competition -- it's more like a "double your pleasure" thing.
Next Wednesday and Thursday many car collectors will be coming to this area for the Iola Old Car Show. So I wanted to let all of you know that you're welcome to stop by either or both of these cruises. Both take place on Waupaca's West Fulton Street, very near the northernmost Highway 10 exit in Waupaca. It's the Burger King on Wednesday night and Culver's on Thursday.
We'll be looking for you! Bring your old car and come say hello!
