Photos by Tom Rivers – A 1939 Chevy Coupe was one of the more popular cars at the Classic Car Cruise-In at Medina’s Canal Basin on Friday night.

Medina kicked off its 17th season of Cruise-In’s last Friday. The weekly events will continue on Fridays until late August.

MEDINA – The parking lot on Medina’s Canal Basin was full of cars tonight from the previous century – Model T Fords, 1957 Chevys, Buick Convertibles, and many others.

The Cruise-In didn’t start until 6 p.m., but when I stopped by at 5:45, there were already 60 cars parked for the show, many with their hoods up.

Organizer Dave Green expected more to arrive later in the evening, likely 80 to 100 cars for the event. Medina kicked off the cruise-in series last Friday. It will continue every Friday until the end of August. Medina has been putting on the event for 17 years. Green and Donna Bushover are the organizers.

A 1939 Chevy Coupe created the biggest stir with a crowd of folks gathered around it when I was there.
