Southern Cruzers Car Club


The Southern Cruzers Car Club was founded in 1981, and its members are primarily from the southern suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN. The Club is made up of people of all ages, with cars of all makes, models and years. We are an active club that enjoys giving back to the community.

The Summer Spectacular is an annual Car Show and Swap Meet that we host each fall. It's way more than just a Car Show, it is an EVENT. In addition to the hundreds of cars on display, there is entertainment and great food. The Summer Spectacular has become the largest car show south of the river, and we are pleased to donate the profits from this event to local charities and scholarships.

We enjoy giving back to our community. Two ways that we give back are through charitable contributions to help those less fortunate than us and by staging mini-car shows for those at assisted living and care facilities.

We are an active club! Summer is our busiest time of year with weekly and monthly cruise-ins to local restaurants and car events. We also have a monthly club meeting and scheduled club gatherings and events for club members year-round.

We are grateful for our sponsors! It is because of our sponsors participation and ogoing generosity that makes so much of what we do possible! We highly recommend that you visit each of our sponsors, and let them know you found them on the Southern Cruzers website!
