Perfect Weather For 28th Street Metro Cruise

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — I guess my headline says it all! The weather was indeed perfect for the annual 28th street Metro Cruise in Grand Rapids. Temps reached the low/mid 80s with an almost cloudless sky much of the day…and still low humidity levels too!

I love the old-time cars. I worked on many different styles, shapes, and colors in my life repairing rust, filling in holes, and pulling engines. They didn’t call me James Bondo for nothing!

The 28th street Metro Cruise showcases some of the finest cars across the area, region, and state. The old classics! Remember 60s series tires, chrome parts, sidepipes, real metal dashboards, and heavy duty long-lasting parts? They just don’t make ’em like this anymore.

The event was started in 2005 with about 85,000 people participating and attending. That number has now grown to 250,000. Click here to read more on the history of the show.

The attached photo was snapped by our media partner and WLAV-FM radio-jock Rob Brandt. He was obviously poised somewhere high above the cruise atop one of the buildings. Great shot Rob!

Heat and humidity will start increasing on Sunday and continue through at least the first half of the week or longer. Get ready for a return to summer temps. Click over to www.fox17online.com/weather for the complete forecast.

    Thank you metrocruise. We know you're not going anywhere because you bring in needed money. Maybe we wouldn't need it so much if Wyoming hadn't taxed everybody into oblivion. Got to pay for that bloated city government. Anyhow thanks for constantly bumping your stereos and doing burnouts at the stop sign in front of my house. I really appreciate you doing 60 down my side street while kids are playing out front. I can't wait for the helicopters to end this hell once again.

    Its a festival for idiots who can’t grow up!

    Hilarious that the people gripe and moan about unemployment yet they still afford those trashmobiles!

    It should be called “tards with cars”-

    Happy I left Wyoming and Mi behind!

Highest foreclosure rates and lowest IQ stats? Probably from all the inbred’s you have there from making a wreath out of your cousin marrying family tree!
