The last night for cruising MetroCenter was last night. Here is brief video of the happening. Don and I didn't cruise MetroCenter, but we did cruise Central Avenue before it was shut down for cruising. Everybody stopped at Bob's Big Boy for a hamburger and a shake. Before Don and I dated, he did it in a Ford GT-40, a car on the lot of Bill Watkins Ford at Camelback and Scottsdale Road. That same GT-40 was sold to somebody in Ohio, then went to England, then to Australia, where it was purchased by Bib Stilwell, an Aussi who moved to Tucson and ran Lear Jet Company. Tucson's Jim Click bought it in the early 90's from Bib. Bib had it converted into a vintage race car by John Horsman and John Weir- both world famous race car prep engineers from England.

We did cruise Central in our Cobra but I missed the GT-40 ride by a year or so.

Thanks for sharing the video Sharon. Looks like it was a great turnout... From what I've read and seen a lot of great memories were created there over the years.
