The Steel Yard Cruise Night, Providence, RI, July 16, 2010

This was a slightly unusual car show, held at The Steel Yard in the early evening. It seemed to be open to virtually anything, but the show consisted of mostly vintage American cars and rods. I brought my CB100, Baby, to show her for the very first time in all the 13 years I’ve owned her. I’m glad I did too, because my bike surprisingly generated quite a buzz and I got tons of compliments on her. Plus, I ended up winning the door prize, which was a Steel Yard tee shirt. Not too shabby! Here’s some of my favorites from the show:
