Yes, we’re asking the same question, “Where did summer go?!” It always seems to take a long time for the season to arrive and goes by way too fast once it’s here. Luckily, there are still a few weeks left and we have the perfect steel vehicles to get you through your end-of-summer activities.
The Dream Cruise
Each year, on the third Saturday in August, more than 1 million people gather on the legendary 16-mile stretch of Woodward Avenue, in Southeast Michigan, to celebrate classic car culture at the Woodward Dream Cruise. Whether you’re watching vehicles pass as they cruise, or taking a peek inside one of the classics parked along the roadway, you’ve seen examples of how steel has influenced design over the decades. We have a hard time picking just one vehicle to highlight out of the long list of remarkable steel vehicles during this car-enthusiast gathering. Instead, we leave it to AutoGuide to share the coolest steel vehicles of last year’s Dream Cruise – most of which used steel for greater flexibility and performance to make designers’ and engineers’ visions come to life.
Heading off (back) to college might be one of the most bittersweet moments for both parents and students. While it’s exciting for young adults to start a new adventure, its’ not easy to do without the help and support of their parents. Meanwhile, parents need another type of support. They need a reliable vehicle to help them make it through the journey. Our steel vehicle recommendation? A steel-intensive minivan to help you reach your teenager’s destination. Roomy enough to load up and reliable enough to get you there, a steel minivan is great for college move-ins.
We know the summer can get busy and your adventures get pushed to the side. Make time to hit the dirt and take an off-roading adventure. Our trip last October for the State Fair of Texas gave us insight on what pickups rock in the mud! Be sure to let us know where your favorite off-roading sites are located.
No matter what your final summer activities, whether it’s taking your kids to college, towing your boat home for winter storage or enjoying tailgating adventures, a steel vehicle is a vehicle of style, durability and reliability. How are you spending the last few weeks of summer? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below!
