Cruisin’ the Coast is a huge car event that takes place every year in October. It’s an event that encompasses no less than nine different coastal towns filled with great restaurants, shops and live music. All that is good, but what makes it great is the almost 8,500 cars that participate in the cruising up and down the coast. The cars range from Jeeps to hot rods to muscle cars and, yes Corvettes, lots of Corvettes.
Since there’s no year cut-off this venue has become a favorite for many Corvette clubs because everything from a C1 to a C7 is welcomed to participate. There’s also a large swap meet, a collector car auction, and a big car corral. The live music at each cruise-in site is great and if you’re not completely worn out from the events of the day you can head to a casino for big name entertainment and legal gambling. Yes, Cruising the Coast is a serious car guy event and a great way to enjoy your Corvette with fellow automotive enthusiasts. The 2017 version is in the books, but the 2018 version will happen next October and this event just gets better every year. We snapped some photos of 100 of our favorite Corvettes. You may notice that many of the photos show the cars in motion and that’s no accident because a good part of the time you actually will be driving your car. Checkout our photo gallery and make plans now to head to the Mississippi coast next October, you’ll be glad you did.
