Cruisers: It doesn't get any better than Cruisin' The Coast

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

Thousands of classic car lovers are saying it doesn't get any better than Cruisin' the Coast. The week long party continued on Friday. 

For Scott Mullins of Springfield, Louisiana, Cruisin' the Coast brings back a lot of good memories, especially when he spotted a car similar to one he once owned.

"I used to have one just like it, just a different color. Not quite the shape this one is in, but really, really nice," said Mullins. "There's many nice ones down here."

Most of the classic car lovers we talked to at the D'Iberville site have a lot of Cruisin' memories.

"Just the atmosphere. Just the love of cars and just coming here," said Steve Frano of Atlanta. "Been doing this for 10 years or more and just love it."

"The cars. I have no favorite. I love them all," said Walt Trzaska of the Kiln.

Isaac Washington of Tennessee said, "We came the first year and it rained on us a little bit on us, but it was so beautiful we just couldn't wait to come back. So we came back last year and had a nice time. We come back this year and it's beautiful again. You can't beat it. They treat you like a king."

"It's my wife's birthday trip. We come down for her birthday every year," said Steve Burke of Birmingham. "We come down here. She enjoys the music. I enjoy the cars, and we just have great fun."

Most people said they'd first heard about Cruisin' from word of mouth and they've been spreading the word back in their hometowns to encourage more people to come.

Gene Unsinger of Ohio said, "We've been sending pictures and everything and making them mad at work. Hopefully more of them will come down next year."

"I'm passing it all along to the friends of mine who've got cars. I tell them ain't nothing like Cruisin' the Coast. You've got to go. You've got to go," said Washington.
