The Lamplighter Shines



If you happened to have been driving up Route 22 last Thursday, May 16th, headed toward Delmont, you may have noticed all the hub-bub in the parking lot of the Lamplighter. The lot was filled with cars and cruisers. Not just a few and not just the regulars. The occasion was the first trophy cruise of the 2013 season at the Lamplighter. If you are a child of the muscle car era, you had a chance to see some classics from the 50's through the 70's. Mustangs and Vettes led the pack with a good showing of both. It was interes 0020e ting to see the older models lined up next to some of the newer ones. If you like hot rods, "Oh What a Night", Good and Plenty of eye candy. It made it difficult to pick a favorite, which of course was the objective of the the voting. The trophy of event was directed by Jeff Allen of WLSW, the M.C. and D.J. , quite a man of letters, the icon from Music Power 104. As he played the oldies the cruisers enjoyed a beautiful evening poking their heads under hoods, comparing notes, and telling tales of the good old days.

   As the evening sun reflected off chrome and polish, I scurried around the parking lot snapping cars and trucks at a hurried pace trying to get as many pics I could before my ride left me behind in the dust. There were several "out of the ordinary" makes appearing at this cruise such as: Mack, Miata, Willys, Studebaker, International, Kaiser and Fiat to name a few. If you missed the cruise, no worries, they're just getting started. The cruise is held every Thursday evening. If you are out that way, stop in, treat yourself.
