Boys' Toys

"Little boys like little (inexpensive) toys, big boys like big (expensive) toys." These were words of wisdom (warning) to me from my father when my son was young. I don't have any brothers, so my father was always a little worried that I wouldn't quite know what to do with a son.

Unfortunately, my father was correct my son's case. A youthful interest in toy cars gave way to an interest in the real thing. Fortunately, there are local opportunities to see some great cars, without having to buy one.

The Bluesmobile Cruise Nights are just up Northwest Highway from the Des Plaines Public Library on Saturday nights from 6-9 p.m. They are held in the Metra parking lot at Route 83 and Northwest Highway in Mount Prospect. Each week features a different theme , so there are always new cars to see. (Don't tell the "boys" at my house that Corvette Night is August 27. That is a way too expensive toy for us. We'll stick to reading Corvette by Michael Bradley.)

The Des Plaines Fall Fest at Lake Park will also include a car show on Sept 17 and 18.

Do you know of any other local Cruise nights or car shows? Let me know so I can drive on over.
