The summer cruise season is upon us and well, there are no shortage of events to participate in. But of course they are not all created equal and some of the better organized events draw in some serious cars. Recently, we went along for the ride at one of the newer events on the scene, the Humberview Motorsports . The high-end dealer is part of the legendary Old Mill GM network and they can sell or lease you any pre-owned exotic you find anywhere in the world.
So to celebrate the grand opening of their new facility, they put together a cruise that ran from west Toronto, through the Escarpment region to Niagara wine country. Over 60 cars turned out in every possible paint scheme you can imagine. What would a supercar be without an obnoxiously loud paint colour really. All kinds of Porsche, Lotus, Maserati, Audi, Lamborghini and Ferrari products came out with a couple Ford GTs to represent the domestic side of things. There were a few older models that turned out like a Porsche 928, Ferrari 328 and a 70's Carrera but for the most part these pricey cars were fairly new.
With a police presence at the starting grid, drivers decided against doing anything that would warrant a ticket. And along the way, the sound of hundreds of cylinders at full song were enough to please the auto-senses. After winding through the technical roads of the Escarpment in wine region, the cruise ended up in the Victorian jewel of Niagara-on-the-Lake. There was lots of scenery to take in and some good, genuine enthusiasts to get involved in deep automotive debates with. All-in-all if you have an exotic worthy of registering, it was worth the trip but if you are just a fan, be sure to head over to Humberview Motorsports next year to see the legacy of what they have pushed off the lot over the years.
