5,000 View Beeline Cruise-In Car Show


An estimated 5,000 people attended the 15th Annual Beeline Cruise-In hosted by the Rim Country Classic Auto Club. Plus, more than 300 cars participated.

"We probably had 1,000 people come through the shop," said Mike Stuart, owner of Gasoline Alley on Main Street.

Most of them bought something too, according to his wife, Debbie.

The big show also helped area hotels and motels. Several were almost filled, primarily due to car show participants.

The spokesman at Days Inn & Suites said his business did not have as many guests this year as it did last year though. "We were at probably 100 percent last year and only between 75 and 80 percent this year."
