Classic Cars Cruise Through St. Clair Shores (Video) #SelfieStickDiary

Traffic on Harper Avenue in St. Clair Shores moved at a snail's pace Wednesday night as hundreds of cars, trucks and motorcycles cruised through the heart of the city to the delight of thousands of classic car enthusiasts for the annual Shorewood Kiwanis Harper Charity Cruise.

From old Eight Mile to Bayside Street, cruise fans packed Harper to see the classic cars, custom vehicles and the latest in models from domestic and international manufacturers. Some started arriving as early as 6 a.m. to get the perfect spot, meet with fellow car owners and take in the sites and sounds of the annual event.

New this year was a Mustang Meetup hosted by Roy O'Brien Ford - as part of the 50th anniversary of the pony car - where owners showed off different models of the sports car.

Other businesses along Harper also joined in the festivities by hosting parties with live bands, car clubs and events for car lovers of all ages.

While the high-octane event celebrated cars, there was also a greater purpose. Proceeds from the cruise benefit local charities including: Tree of Hope Foundation, CARE of Southeastern Michigan, Macomb Chamber Music Society, Wigs 4 Kids, St. Clair Shores Cultural Committee, Lakeshore Family YMCA and the Shorewood Kiwanis.
