I’d been looking forward to May 3rd and hoping for good weather, because that was the date for the kickoff of the Friday cruise night season with Classic Nights Car Club in Monroe, CT.  This has been one of my favorite cruise nights for many years because of the variety and quality of the cars it draws.  Upon arrival, I was handed a leaflet announcing the end of the Classic Nights Cruise Nights, effective the following Friday, May 10.  What could bring an end to this always well-attended 29-year institution in Fairfield County?  Sadly, the simple answer is lack of funds.  This year there is no sponsor for the weekly cruise-ins, and the car club can’t afford the cost of the event insurance on its own.  With rain now in the forecast for May 10, and the club’s insurance expiring shortly thereafter, we may have just attended the last ever Village Square Cruise Night.  I hope I’ll be able to report later in the season that a sponsor stepped up and Classic Nights Car Club will then be able to continue this long-standing Friday cruise night.
