About Classic Cruiser of Monroe

Club/Cruise in every Wednesday Evening at the Poplin Place Shopping Center in Monroe (Hwy 74)

Back in 1986, two gentlemen standing in front of the Sonic came up with an idea to form a car club. Forest Clayton and Dan Pierce gave birth to a new club and gave it the name of “Classic Cruisers of Monroe” Now I’m sure there is much history missing and we’ll eventually attempt to fill in all the missing holes.
For now, the biggest little car club in the "Carolinas” meets right here in Sweet Union County every Wednesday Night at the Poplin Place Shopping Center (Target, Hwy 74). Originally formed back in 1986 with a small following of classic car enthusiasts. Today, the club entertains a crowd each week. Rows of classic cars, trucks, street rods, and muscle cars line the parking lot of the new Target Shopping Center located on East Hwy 74 every Wednesday Night (6pm till).
We probably have between 50 and 60 active members, but did you know we have over 450 total members on our membership list. Wow, where is everyone. Before moving to our latest gathering spot, we met at CiCi’s Pizza, Buffalo’s Café, Indian Trail’s Burger King, and the Amarillo Depot in Monroe.
Although most cars featured are classics from a bygone era, the invitation to the Club is open to everything from the mid-teens to the present. There are trucks as well as cars, from the 20s to the present, no telling what might show up. There’s always a big gathering of gawkers around the modified street rods, and not always the folks you’d expect. According to Jim Collura, club Prez, “You usually think of the younger guys with the street rods and muscle cars; it’s fun to see the 40– and 60– year-olds pull up with their gray hair and beards.”

Some of the Cruisers take their cars to shows throughout the country but most stay within the South-Eastern area and go to shows like Run to the Sun at Myrtle Beach, Good Guys Rod and Custom Show at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and of course the AutoFair at the Speedway as well. The club has helped with local charities, including Hospice and the Christmas Bureau.

In October of 1995:
