Cruise-In celebrates ‘oldies but goodies’

For those who know a little something about classic cars and oldies-but-goodies music, you know that the 1962 Beach Boys hit “409” describes the Chevrolet 409, first introduced in 1961 and named because of its huge 409 cubic-inch engine. The song “409” describes the coupe version of the car, equipped with the 4-speed, dual quad, posi-traction equipment. It’s reported it could do a 12.22-second quarter mile at 115 miles per hour, going from zero to 60 miles per hour in 4 seconds flat, making the car a big hit among street racers of that time.
