Post by: Wheelman on September 07, 2018, 10:38:01 AM
BURT REYNOLDS TRIBUTE CRUISE - SEPT. 8TH

As a tribute to THE BANDIT we are having a tribute/memorial cruise this saturday.
Cruise will meet up and leave from the Street Classics Cruise-In at 9:00PM (Canadian Tire lot at 1608 The Queensway - 427 & Queensway)

The route will take us along The Queensway and Lakeshore Blvd, up Yonge St. to the 401, and over to the Kennedy Commons Plaza lot at the South/East corner of Kennedy and the 401.


We may overshadow the Toronto International Film Festival TIFF as we pass by :)

Let's line the streets to honour The Bandit !!!

Photos/Videos from this event may be uploaded to the Gallery for all to view.

Normally I'd be in for this but I'll be well east of the city tomorrow. If you're at Princess on my way home I'll stop in but otherwise you can tell me about it next weekend.

That is a too bad...response has been great so far.

Souvenir flyers are being printed for the event...and at least one show car (1976 Firebird Drag car) will be waiting at Princess Auto for our arrival.

I made a test run down Yonge St. last night...blasting "Eastbound and Down" and received complements and thumbs-up from other drivers, and pedestrians all the way through downtown.

Note: Slight change of destination. There was no coffee shop open past 10PM at the McCowan Road destination.

We will now finish the cruise at the Kennedy Commons Plaza (Kennedy Rd. and Hwy. 401) where there is a 24 Hour Tim Hortons.


When you exit the 401, just drive straight through at the end of the off-ramp into the plaza.

Is there going to be a place where we can all share any photos and videos of the tribute cruise? A facebook page or just to this  thread maybe?

So I compiled all my videos from the cruise night and made a short 5 minute tribute video. See if I got any of you guys in it and share the video around! Thanks for the invite again to the cruise!

Great video!
My only regret from the cruise was continuing on Yonge north of Bloor, and not having a proper video.

Now we have to do this again!!!

Thanks! I would love to do another video and get some different angles. Would make for some great content.
