3rd annual Chi-Town Kruze

November 17, 2010
Chicago’s largest outdoor car show & cruise is June 2

With a new cruise route and a special section for Corvettes, Chicago’s largest outdoor classic car cruise and exhibition jump-starts the city’s summer calendar on June 2.


The 8-10 a.m. cruise portion of the Chi-Town STA-BIL Kruse is a rare opportunity for cars of all makes, models and vintage to tour around the picturesque Grant and Millennium Parks. Following a new route this year, the cars will traverse Columbus Drive south to Roosevelt Road, west to Michigan Avenue, north to Randolph Street, and east back to Columbus Drive. 

The cruise route starts near Buckingham Fountain. Drivers are encouraged to make multiple loops before heading to the Soldier Field South Lot for the NAPA Car Show, where the car show continues 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Thousands of spectators are expected to line the cruise route, which includes attractions like the Art Institute, Millennium Park and Grant Park.


Immediately after the cruise, pre-1987 registered cars will be driven to Soldier Field, where owners can display their vehicles, socialize with friends and enjoy activities like family entertainment, sponsor exhibits, fabulous food and collectable merchandise. 

The 2007 Chi-Town STA-BIL Kruze adds a new feature for Chevrolet Corvettes. All Corvettes are welcome (including newer models) and will be displayed in a special section of the NAPA Car Show at Soldier Field. There also will be a designated section for Special Interest and Tuner cars.


One-half of proceeds from car show registration ($20) and all the proceeds from spectator admission ($5) will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities ofChicagoland and northwest Indiana. Last year’s event raised $25,000 for the organization that benefits families of sick children.


Jerry Robbin, president of the International Mercury Owners Association and founder of the Chi-Town STA-BIL Kruze, said: "Our mission is to bring a world-class automobile event to the City of Chicago that exposes the general public to the collector car world, in one of the most beautiful and historic driving environments.


"I felt that Chicago was in need of an event for both the auto enthusiast and the general public alike."
