Every three years the city of Red Deer hosts the Alberta Superrun Associations rodrun. As many as 1000 gorgeous vehicles participate in many events and my favourite the Friday night cruise through downtown Red Deer. I went out again this year and had a great time checking out some superb vehicles. There were hundreds of spectators lining the streets as two lanes of rods cruised Ross Street from 6pm -10pm. I’m sure many hung around and cruised into the wee hours this morning too as it was a beautiful evening – still 20C at 10pm.There are quite a few images in this post, but hey it’s my blog  and I had way too much fun to edit anymore out. Hope you enjoy!! let me know which your favourite is. Maybe there was another vehicle you liked better. I may have an image of it too – let me know and I can post it. Most of these images don’t document the vehicles depicted in them with much accuracy. Instead I was aiming more for the feeling of a cruise night with lots of action,reflecting lights, and noise.

    • Hah, I remember seeing that unit, but never did make an image of it, sorry! I much prefer the more traditional hotrods.
