COLUMBUS, MS (AP) - Authorities have resumed the search for two young brothers who were passengers in an all-terrain vehicle that overturned in a Mississippi creek. Columbus Fire Chief Kenneth MooreMore >>
Authorities have recovered the body of a 6-year-old boy who apparently drowned after an all-terrain vehicle overturned in a Mississippi creek, while the search for his brother continued.
Car lovers cruised to the Biloxi VA Tuesday and parked their classic beauties underneath the large oak trees by the water. It was a picture perfect setting complete with nice weather and even the King of Rock N Roll Elvis Presley.
For some cruisers, the setting brought them back to their childhood. JC Breshears remembers the good ole days, "High school days, drive-ins and girls and hamburgers and milk shakes sitting on the windows."
Breshears and his wife love old cars and take their 1964 T-bird for a spin whenever they get the chance.
"It rides like a luxury car. I had a '76 Vet stingray I sold last year. Two cars is too much for 80-year-old people," Breshears said.
Bobby Deggrafft is also a big fan of old cars, Corvettes in particular.
"For years, I've wanted one, but couldn't afford one. But finally had the opportunity to afford one, so I got it," Deggrafft said.
Cruisin' the Coast is not the only time he shows off his 1961 Vet. In fact, he takes it for a cruise every weekend. That's something VA Director Anthony Dawson says he dreams about.
"I love old cars. I tell you what, I'm very, very competitive. So if I go find one and bring it to Cruisin' the Coast, it's going to be a very, very nice one," Dawson said.
He cannot think of a better way to be welcomed to South Mississippi than by having all the classic cars parked outside his office on his first day of work.
"If this is the way it's going to be, boy this is going to be a nice time here in Biloxi. That's for sure."
Breshears recommends everyone own an old car. "I think everybody who can afford a car should buy one. Enjoy life."
