I spent the day getting the big van ready for the Gratiot cruise tomorrow
With the 65 still down for a fuel delivery problem and the 70 still being worked on the vehicle of choice fell into the hands of the big van. I will head out in WunTunn Zoop and be part of the first big cruise of the year. Can’t miss this one! Or any of them for that matter.
Wun Tunn Zoop is up to the task. With all the room, a dual battery power system, a couple of canopies, half a dozen folding chairs, a gas grill, my portable stereo system and a big ice chest I think we have it pretty well covered. I may not be able to cruise but I will enjoy the day! And it will make a great chase van for cruises with the cars. A great place to relax when parked.
With Roseville jumping into the mix with their Roseville Gratiot Cruise on the same day as the Cruisin Gratiot event in Eastpointe the cruise will run from 8 Mile Road to 14 Mile on Gratiot. How this will play out is yet to be seen.
Two cities, two cruises, one street.
Although unrelated, the two Gratiot Cruises that will be held Saturday will create the longest de facto car cruise ever in Macomb County.
That means the eyes of the classic car world will be on south Macomb this weekend for Eastpointe’s Cruisin’ Gratiot and the Roseville Gratiot Cruise — along with the hodgepodge of businesses along the avenue.
And that’s a good thing, according to Dr. Chris Dyki, president of the Eastpointe-Roseville Chamber of Commerce.

All the cities like to keep the revenues in their city limits but with this day having two cities on the same route with a cruise one can only see this getting spread out over the two municipalities. Roseville’s previous two attempts at a cruise were less than impressive so this year they claim to be better at it. We shall see!
AM will come early and filling the ice chest and getting refreshments will start the day. Then it will be off to Gratiot to find a suitable landing spot. Not sure exactly where I will end up but it should be nice no matter what!
