Happy to be Cruising in AZ

Sunday May 14, 2017 was another wonderful day at CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S in Fountain Hills. We hosted over (66) Cruiser vehicles, including (01) attending for their first time. There were another (6) Cruiser Vehicles that did a drive through but did not stop for a photo.

In honor of Mothers Day, all Women Attending the Cruise-in received double the Raffle Tickets received by men. The day was magnificent and a good time was had by all.

Cruiser car enthusiast friends are like stars, we don’t always see them the entire year, but we know they will always return in the fall and show up at CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S for another season of Cruising.

The last Cruise-in is May 21, 2017, so we hope everyone will make the last events this season.
