Classics slowly cruised past city hall. Women dressed like "The Pink Ladies" strolled down Lameuse Street. Blasts from the past drew longing looks from wanna be owners.
A pair of Texas twins, one orange and one blue, drew plenty of stares. Father owns one car; son the other.
Morris Schweickhardt calls it a "family affair".
"My son decided he wanted a car. And while I'm capable of working with him, we decided to build a car together. So, it became a father-son joint effort," he explained.
There's a labor of love behind every polished paint job and chrome engine. For Paul Wilson, it's a fleeting romance. He falls in love with a classic, then falls for another. He's breaking up with his '68 Chevelle.
"I buy one. I keep it awhile. I find something else I want. I sell it. I buy another one. I can't afford but one at a time," said Wilson.
Furry dice are the perfect complement to any classic car. But apparently the '65 Mustang parked across from city hall has a little growing up to do. The 1923 Ford parked along side had a giant set of dice, that dwarfed the pair hanging from the Mustang's mirror.
Mark Wood's wife made the dice. It won the couple a trophy for the "largest pair".
Veterans of Cruising will tell you, it's not just the fine rides. It's the fascinating tales behind the tail pipes.
"Tell stories. They've got a story, you've got a story. So, it's a fun atmosphere to be in," said Schweickhardt, "And you meet a lot of people from a lot of different parts of the country."
The reunion in downtown Biloxi is always a popular pit stop.
