2013 Season

May 4th

A nice start for the 2013 season, it could have been a little warmer with a lot less wind, that didn’t stop the cruisers and spectators from coming out and enjoying the great display of Classics, Muscle Cars, Hot Rods and Rat rods and the great cars from the Petty Museum.
The North Tower Band was excellent giving us the sounds from Beach Music to the 80s & 90s.
1967 Corvette 427/425
Gaylan Tucker restored this five years ago and has only put 100 miles on it since then.

June 1st

What an exciting day with close to 1000 classic rides and over 6,000 spectators.  The weather was perfect and all I saw were smiles from the Hot Nights Hot Cars fans.
Atlantic Groove rocked the house, the dance floor stayed full all evening.
This 1948 Desoto is the pride and joy of Jackie Fallen, powered by a 392 Hemi born in a ’58 Chrysler Imperial.
When asked if he trailered this classic ride, Jackie said,
” I don’t have a boat so I don’t own a trailer! ”
The Desoto is driven all over the U.S.& Canada.

July 6th

Our third event of the season, honoring our Nation with lots of Red White and Blue!  I came across
many first timers to our cruise-in, lots of unique and classy rides.  We had to abruptly end the evening when the rains came down, it still turned out to be one of our best events, the Shakers were ‘Fantastic’.  Below you can see some of the classics that make this Hot Nights Hot Cars!

This had to be our biggest one to date, well over 1100 classics with spectators nearing 12,000.  We would like to thank all those who came out and made this a spectacular Cruise-In.


Hey! everyone, first let me introduce myself, I am  Dominick, the chubby guy you see walking around all day with a camera in my hand.  I am part of the committee know as Mt. Pilot Now, and we are responsible for this great event, Hot Nights Hot Cars.
This month the Ride of the Month has been changed to Rides of the Month, and the cars of some of the members are being featured.  I hope you have been enjoying this great event and we will be working hard to keep it the best Cruise-In in the area!
Wishing the best to all of you,

September 2013 Classic Ride of the Month

October 5th

This event gets better every month. A beautiful day for a cruise-in and the amount of cars and spectators sure was proof of that.
I am a little behind in updating our web site, a little computer problem, I am working hard to bring you some of the great parts of this exceptional event.
This is the last event of the season at Pilot Mountain, I hope you have enjoyed these last six months, we will start up again on the first Saturday in May and plan to bring you an exciting set of events through October 2014.  Stay safe and enjoy the site, and don’t forget our sponsors, without these fine folks this would not be able to continue.
