Cruisers share love of cars with Vancleave kids

VANCLEAVE, MS (WLOX) - Students at Vancleave Lower Elementary welcomed Cruising the Coast with a 50s style party in the school parking lot Friday morning. Kids dressed in poodle skirts and leather jackets spent time admiring the classic cars that rolled in for the celebration.

The cruisers say it's great fun sharing their cars and the passion for their hobby with the next generation.

Thousands of classic cars will begin arriving in South Mississippi this weekend. The first official Cruisin' the Coast event is set for Sunday.
