MEDINA – Terry Buchwald, an Elvis impersonator, sings and dances from a stage on Main Street during the Super Cruise which included classic cars and a big crowd in downtown Medina.

Buchwald rides a motorcyle to the stage. He was scheduled to perform in Medina last Wednesday but the show was cancelled when his wife had a baby boy named Brooks. The weather was also much better this evening compared to the cold and drizzle a week ago.

Medina blocked off part of Main Street for the Super Cruise, which included this 1964 Pontiac.

This 1941 Dodge pickup is parked in the middle of the street.

Medina Rotary Club members Jennifer Hill and Gary Lawton serve hamburgers and hot dogs. The club also had clams for sale.

The cars brought out lots of people in a festive environment.

Buchwald, pictured on stage by Napa Auto Parts, is a crowd pleaser. He has returned several times to conclude the classic car series in Medina.

Lynne Menz shared this photo from the third floor of the Bent’s Opera House. This was early in the Super Cruise, before the street was packed with people.

This 1947 Cadillac includes a fairy tale message.
