"Cruise Night" party a huge success at AREA 51!

The Friends of Cruise Night gathered at AREA 51 on Saturday night to debut the trailer for "Cruise Night," a movie by Tim Gavern. Close to 100 guests from as far away as New Jersey came out to support Tim and view the trailer. Tim's partner and cousin, Phil Gavern, was also there to meet and greet and help promote the movie. Many of the cast and cars from the trailer were there, which added to the excitement of the evening. Filming is scheduled to begin in November of this year and everyone who's seen the trailer says the same thing..."This movie needs to be made." Labeled by many as the next "American Graffiti," Tim really hopes people will connect with his story of the car culture and street racing scene in the early 70's. You can view the trailer here. Check it out.

The star of the show...

Once again "Peppers" from Arcadia put together
a wonderful dinner for all to enjoy.

AJ with Katelyn and Megan Gelber ( they're
sisters...ya' think?) who will also be in Cruise Night.

Lots of raffle prizes were given out throughout
the evening.

"Pato" Selders a big winner.

George McClelland looking at himself on the wall,
circa 1970's.

Tim Gavern with an animated greeting!

Megan Gelber was the original winner of the Cragar
wheels but donated them back. And who had the
second winning ticket? "Lucky" Mike Morgan.

Lance, AJ, and Josh...some of the young guns

One of the cars used in the trailer was Kenn Funk's
1969 Plymouth.

Kristy and "TV Star" Steve Magnate. Yeah, he's
the guy you see on Barrett Jackson and all those
other car shows, but he's a regular guy!
