(WPRI) -- One of the great summer past-times is classic car cruises. And with the weather we've been having lately, nothing beats a nice night checking out some hot wheels.
NiRoPe, Nick, Ron and Pete Cardi, along with local car cruise host Cruisin' Bruce Palmer, joined The Rhode Show to talk more about.
The Rhode Show: But first, Nick, you guys have a great offer happening for folks coming in now through Monday?
Nick Cardi: That's right, five years no interest on purchases over $4,999. What that means; with approved financing; you could buy $5,000 worth of furniture, and with no interest for five years; your monthly payment would be $83. Think about it, you could redo one room or your whole house, for only $83 per month. What about that mattress you've been sleeping on? How old is it? Now's the time to get the best, because you deserve the best! A great mattress and bedroom set that is comfortable for both your body and your wallet! Plus we still have the outdoor sets available for immediate delivery, come in and see those, summer is here, let's enjoy it!
The Rhode Show: Very affordable and who doesn't love new furniture? Now talking about enjoying the summer, Ron, Cardi's has been doing classic car cruises for years, and that's a fun way to enjoy summer nights.
Ron Cardi: Absolutely, every Monday in West Warwick, and Wednesday in South Attleboro, both nights start at 5:30 p.m. We get cars from just about every decade in the 1900's, and when you see how much time and effort the car owners put into their own vehicles, you can't help but smile and look at all the details of the cars! It's a great family event, free for everyone: participants and spectators alike, great music, food, and as we always try to do, help raise funds for local groups: we have a great 50/50 raffle which benefits the MacCauley House, Special Olympics, and the Rhode Island Food Bank.
The Rhode Show: Bruce; you've been hosting car cruises in Rhode Island for years, tell us what makes this such a fun hobby and also, tell us what kind of car you brought us today?
Bruce Palmer: There's a passion with old cars. There's nostalgia, there's a simplicity of the cars, but the best part is the sense of community that it builds among the owners. Folks love to come out, share their experience and it's a family friendly event.
The Rhode Show: Pete, these are truly great events for all ages!
Pete Cardi: That's right, Monday's with Cruisin' Bruce, or Wednesdays with DJ Al Brewer, it's a relaxing, fun evening with these pieces history preserved and operational. People come with their classic cars, they bring an outdoor chair, answer any questions you may have, and -- if they don't know the answer -- they'll make up something believable! The classic car owners know a great deal about a quality built machine, and it's fun to see how cars have evolved over the past century. We're so happy to host Classic Car Cruises throughout the summer.
