America has long had a love affair with cars.
That was evident at Friday night’s annual Geneva Business Improvement District-sponsored Cruisin’ Night downtown. This year’s event, held on a clear, cool evening, attracted thousands of visitors.
Old and new cars and trucks and a growing number of motorcycles lined Seneca, Exchange and Castle Streets to be admired, talked about, analyzed and just plain enjoyed.
A common refrain was “I used to have one of them. I wish I’d kept it.’’
Bill Schumacher of Savannah came for the first time. He brought his 1972 American Motors Javelin to display. He said he was so impressed with the event that he plans to come back again.
“I’m having a great time. The weather is perfect. The cars, the music, the food and drink and the people make it a fun night,’’ Schumacher said.
