MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - There will be thousands of hot rods making a return to West Michigan this summer. Hot Rod Magazine has once again chosen Muskegon as one of seven stops on a national tour. It could be the biggest event in the city's history.
For the second year in a row, car lovers in Muskegon are prepared to feel years younger.
"Immediately after hearing about some car event, everyone smiles and faces say, 'Wow. Lets go," says John Van Wyck, Chairman of Cruising the Lakeshore.
The tour will involve seven cities around the country. The publisher of Hot Rod Magazine says there were three main reasons Muskegon was chosen again.
"Muskegon loves hot rods, its right on the lake, and we needed a place that's really welcoming," says Jerry Pitt, Publisher of Hot Rod Magazine.
The event will feature about 4,000 cars on the road.
