Members of the Veteran Motor Car Club of America (VMCCA) Central Arizona Chapter gathered Aug. 26 at Jerona Gallery & Gifts in Cottonwood for its second Cruise Night of the season. Sedona Car Club members also joined the festivities, which included food, popcorn and recorded music by Nick Hunseder of Nick of Time Productions. Song selections included favorites from the '50s and '60s and had a car theme (Little Deuce Coupe, Mustang Sally).
Between 40 and 50 classic and custom cars and trucks were on display, attracting about 100 auto aficionados.
Cruise Nights will continue monthly every second Friday and every fourth Saturday until winter. The next gathering is Sept. 8, 5-9 p.m., at Hog Wild Restaurant, 705 N.
