One of the best things about living in the “official” car cruise capital of the state I reside in is that during the months of April through October, I can get a close look at thousands of classic automobiles and on occasion, even see exotics and true rarities.

Because on the fourth weekend of each of these seven months of the year, Somernites Cruise takes place.

Unlike many car shows, this one isn’t a contest. There are no trophies or prizes to be had by any of the entrants.

It’s simply a gathering of classic car owners, enthusiasts and thousands of gawkers that come to give the cars a look. And after the show and shine ends, those who’ve brought their cars are encouraged to take part in a little “American Graffiti” style cruising down the main thoroughfare.

Some might argue that those factors alone are prizes themselves.

Nearly a thousand cars turned out at the just concluded cruise from this past weekend. And since the focus of July’s cruise was the Chevrolet Corvette, more than 250 of ‘vettes were on display, with one owner bringing his more than 2,100 miles from California to the cruise in Kentucky.

After the break, check out just a few of those quarter-thousand ‘vettes that lined up this past Saturday.
