On Monday July 19th, weather permitting, the Connecticut Triumph Register goes on the road to Mark’s Drive-in in Granby, CT.
The plan is to assemble at Gio’s Pizza (3 Turkey Hill Road, East Granby) at 5:30pm and drive to Mark’s in a caravan at 5:45pm. If you arrive later, just head straight to Mark’s and look for the British car contingent.
The cruise is located on 25 acres of land in East Granby, Connecticut. This family friendly cruise is dedicated to perpetuating the memory of antique, classic and special interest vehicles.
Marks Classic Cruise is an OPEN cruise night; which means anyone is welcome to attend regardless of year, make, and model driven. The theme for the 19th is Corvette.
Vehicles must be clean. The cruise runs every Monday night (unless inclement weather or saturated field conditions.) from 5pm to 9pm between May and September (excluding holidays). Food vendors offer a menu of: burgers, chili, pizza, hot dogs, popcorn, soda, water, coffee, and desserts. Often times there are specials available too.
Mark’s Classic Cruise is adjacent to Bradley International Airport. From I-90, take exit 40 (CT route 20), turn onto East Street and take a right onto Russell Road. The website for Mark’s is at www.markscruisenight.com Check their website if the weather looks doubtful.
