The Mainstreet Cruisers are a group of local classic car owners who meet regularly to “cruise” and talk vehicles.

“For many of us, we grew up with these vehicles, we like to go out for a drive on a Saturday afternoon — people stop and smile when they see a classic car,” Jethon said. “For the average person that gets into a car hobby, it’s someone who likes to preserve something that reminds them of their youth.”
