Culver’s Cruise-In Serves Up Fords In Lake Orion, Michigan

Article Header Image

LAKE ORION, Mich. – For enthusiasts, the summer is much more than beaches, sunny skies and ice cream. Car-loving people spend their summer seeking out every cruise-in, meet-up, club gathering and car show, making up just about any excuse they can for the need to take our prized vehicles out for a drive and show them off. While fast-food restaurants all across the country are popular venues for cruise-ins, one such event we know of in Southeastern Michigan has evolved into a pretty big deal. It’s the Tuesday night show suburban Detroiters always try to catch: the Cruise-In at Culver’s restaurant in Lake Orion, Michigan. Blue Boss 302 Mustang 1969

Starting in the last week of April, the weekly Culver’s cruise-in runs until the temperatures begin to drop in mid-October. Show-goers will typically start arriving around 4 p.m. and the cars don’t start rolling out until 8 p.m. The restaurant provides plenty of parking space for the up to 300 cars that attend each week, and often includes on-site DJ, a 50/50 raffle, and weekly prizes, including (of course) Culver’s gift cards. Since this has become a regular cruise-in activity for our roving Ford retiree enthusiast/photographer Bill Cook, he kindly treated us to a taste of some of the Fords he spotted at a recent Tuesday-night cruise in the gallery below:Matte Black Ford BroncoRed Ford GalaxieBlue Ford TorinoRed Ford Terminator Cobra convertibleVarious 1960s Ford Mustangs at showDSG Newedge mustangDark red mercury mauraderFord hot rod with exposed engineBlue Ford parked at CulversSilver 1967 Eleanor replica carGrabber Blue 1970 Mustang mach 1Red 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1Green 1966 MustangRed 1950s ford pickup truck
