Cruising Wesley Street has been a Greenville tradition since the mid-sixties or earlier.  The teen aged drivers of the sixties and seventies have seasoned after forty or fifty years or so but their cars haven’t.  People remember driving on Lee Street when the evening show at the Texan finished and ending up at the Royal Drive-in.  Today, the Wesley Street Cruisers continue the tradition by driving slowly to the Sonic to see and be seen by all in Greenville.

The 7th Annual Car and Motorcycle Show took place Saturday evening at the Farmers Market after fifty or sixty classic and vintage cars circled the Sonic Parking lot then cruised to the market square for a car show.  There were twenty-eight classes of cars, trucks and motorcycles.  The show was held at night in order to show off the neon lighting installed on many of the cars.  Many cars came from Dallas, Ft. Worth and other communities in North Texas.  One car came to Greenville by way of Tacoma, Washington.
