Cruise-in time for friends, car lovers


The Hot Nights Hot Cars Cruise-In acts as a monthly reunion for friends and car enthusiasts. Here, Cathy Newman of Hillsville, Virginia, Billy Lawson of Galax, Virginia, and Haywood and Lavae Hughes of Lexington enjoy their time sitting with their cars (1963 Ford Fairlane Sports Coup and 1966 Chevelle SS 427 4-speed) watching cars cruise up and down Main Street.
