If you find yourself in northern Idaho in mid-June you might want to swing by Coeur d' Alene to check out the Car D' Lane Cruise & Show held along the picturesque shores of Lake Coeur d' Alene. The Friday night cruise and the Saturday show & shine occur near the middle of June each year. The 2009 event will be the 19th annual cruise & show and is planned for June 12th and 13th.
The highlight of the event, the Friday evening cruise, is in downtown Coeur d' Alene, and draws 800-900 cars each year. The Saturday show has 500-600 participants and, although not a professionally judged show, trophies are presented by several of the show's sponsors. Both events are for cars 1972 and older. The two day event attracts 25,000-30,000 spectators and features a poker walk on Saturday. On-line registration and further information is available at cdadowntown.com. Car D' Lane is a joint effort between the Coeur d' Alene Downtown Association and North Idaho Classic Car Club.
Here's a sampling of the cars that attended the 2008 event.
