BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
Just a day before one of the biggest special events in Mississippi began and motorists were already cruising along Highway 90, but they weren't the only ones that got an early start Saturday.
Jimmy McCool and his family and friends sat under the shade next to there RV watching the custom automobiles trickle in.
"Always come to Cruisin' the Coast and always try to come really early to get a good spot and get everything set up and so everyone can come by and have a good time," Pascagoula resident Jimmy McCool said.
For several years, McCool has been gathering his family and friends and setting up for a whole week at the parking lot across from Treasure Bay to view the cars.
Cruise watchers from all over say cities within the Gulf Coast are some of the most accommodating to cruisers. Each year many continue to set up at the same viewing spots along the beach.
McCool says he's grateful for his spot because it's perfect for watching vehicles.
"It's wide open you can see all the cars, they have to stop at the red light here. So you get a real good look at them and later on tonight they get kinda wild and their wheels start burning out right here in front of us," he said.
Watching the cars goes beyond entertainment.
"You see something that you really like and you try to find you one [car]," McCool said.
Spectators should have plenty to see this week. Cruisin' the Coast officials said more vehicles are registered this year than last year.
