The 2022 V8TV Drive In Cruise was a success, although a bit wet at times. We were happy to finally fulfill the destiny of having Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke’s 1967 Pontiac GTO, Pauls Wieshuber’s 1962 Buick Electra, and Kevin Oeste’s 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL all at the Drive In event! There were hundreds of cool cars at the show, and it turned out to be a great night. (The ride home was a bit wet!) Paul and Mike had a few minor fixes, but overall the trip went smoothly. Hear all about it, plus some riveting Automotive Trivia questions and much more on the V8 Radio Podcast!
It’s a hot summer in V8 Radio Podcast land, and Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke and Kevin Oeste over some great summer events like the Street Machine Summer Nationals in St. Paul, MN, and the upcoming V8TV Drive In Cruise on this episode. They also touch on how mike restored his wheels and FINALLY replaced his decades-old tires, and how he came up with an interesting trick to save his GTO’s smoked harmonic damper. We’ll see how that one works out! Automotive Trivia is in the house as well, making for a full-tilt summertime special episode of the V8 Radio Podcast!
The 2nd Annual V8TV Drive-In Cruise Event at the Belleville Sky-View Drive-In was a huge success, thanks to everyone who came out to see Bullitt on the big screen and enjoy the car show among friendly people with cool cars. There was a huge variety of cars on hand, including 1950s originals, Muscle Cars, classic and off-road trucks, dune buggies, street machines, pro-touring cars, traditional hot rods and kustoms, modern muscle cars, and much more. Special thanks to our generous sponsors who helped us present the event, and the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew for doing the work!

The V8TV 10th Anniversary Drive-In Cruise Presented by HTP America, Inc. was a huge success, and we’re all very thankful to everyone who came out and made the event such a fun time for everyone. We hosted a car show, gave away some fantastic prizes, showed a special V8TV 10th Anniversary feature on the big scree, then capped off the night with a showing of Smokey And The Bandit!
