Nothing Could Be Finer than to Be in Car d'Lane on Father's Day Weekend
By Jerry Brenner
So you say you, your family and your favorite ride are new to the gearhead scene and are lobbying for a plan that includes a weekend at a car show or rod run in the Northwest, leaving from your hometown, preferably within a couple of hours on a freeway/highway. Great plan, now you may want to consider the following. It's the story of an event that's been around for the better part of 30 years. We're talking about the fabulous Car d'Lane Classic Car Show, the 2018 version was held June 16-17. Plan, if you can, to arrive on Friday, in time to partake of the Friday night cruise through downtown Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
Saturday brings the show and shine and with it the opportunity to peruse the shops, a wildly diverse group vending everything from soup to nuts. Fun! The Car d'Lane festivity is brought to you courtesy of the combined forces of the North Idaho Classic Car Club and the Coeur d'Alene Downtown Association. The show and shine typically draws 450 entries on hand to enjoy the arts and crafts in the park, the non-stop live entertainment, hardly enough rain to dampen gearhead spirits.
As to the cars, there's much to see with variety and quality second to none and you're bound to see some "seldom seen" and "debutting" cars as there are some quality builders in and around Coeur d'Alene. Hope to see you there.
