Classic Cars are nestled in the lower
 lot of Brookline Park - August 2007

As part of the Brookline Breeze Week celebration, the Brookline Recreation Center hosted its' 3rd Annual Car Cruise on Friday, August 10, 2007. After two days of torrential downpours and a rare confirmed tornado battered the Pittsburgh area, the clouds parted and the sun shined down upon Brookline Park while several antique car enthusiasts treated our community to a classic car show.

While rare Elvis classics filled the air, park-goers broused the lower parking lot. A cool selection of nearly thirty finely buffed vehicles competed for their affections. After a timeless trip through the past, votes were cast to see which vehicle would win the coveted "People's Choice Award." After making their choice, people were treated to another rarity, Citiparks staffer Milan Tyler toasting up his almost famous "One-In-A-Million" frankfurters.

Award winner, Ken's 1965 GTO.

When the votes were counted and Milan's savory hot dogs were all eaten, the People's Choice was a Cadillac Gray 1965 GTO owned by Ken Kennard and restored by Steve O'Farrell of Steel City Collision in Castle Shannon. Having always been partial to "Goats", I must say it was a fine choice. Congratulations Ken, and good work Steve!

When the sun set, the cars revved up their engines and hit the streets. It was a perfect eve for the big race. When the sun rose the next morning, over 500 runners and walkers would hit the streets of Brookline in the 26th Annual Brookline Breeze 5K Run and Fitness Walk.

a little good will to Clint,
Mickey and Milan. Thank's Doc!

Don't We Wish! This classic
combination appeared at the County

seemed like the perfect place
to share this cool picture.
