Lane Automotive would like to an extend our thanks to everyone who helped make our 30th annual Lane Automotive Cruise In and Car Show a success! We had over 140 cars join us for the Open Header Cruise through Coloma and Watervliet on Friday evening. On Saturday, more than 1400 classic, collector, and show cars were on hand, representing every era and style you can imagine.

A special "thank you" goes out to our local law enforcement and emergency services for keeping our event safe and fun for everyone; our vendors and partners for their incredible displays and offering; our Lane team for all their hard work setting up, during, and tear down; all of our participants for sharing their awesome cars; and most of all, our fans and customers for continuing to make this an amazing and fun event!
