    Just an update to the Nashua, NH Target cruise on Friday nights… The store is currently undergoing a renovation and the show will be temporarily held at the former Shaw’s supermarket parking lot in Merrimack until about July. The address is 356 DW Highway (aka old Route 3) and is just up the street from the King Kone ice cream place. Directions: Take Everett Turnpike to Exit 11 and follow the signs to the DW Highway. Once at the DW highway, take a left and the show will be about 1/2 mile up on the left. If anyone at WBZ can update this, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    There’s also a huge cruise night at the Walmart in Hanson (Route 106) every Friday night until dusk.

  14. Jeff of Cape Cod Classics says:

    The photo car is an early 50’s Kaiser made by Kaiser Frasier Kelvinator etc. owned by Henry J. Kaiser. The Fraiser was a twin. This early cruiser had many creature comforts including seats-to-a-bed. As you might have guessed, the Henry early compact to compete with the Nash Rambler was also produced by this firm. w
