Photos from the 2017 Chattanooga Cruise In Toy Drive

Chattanooga Cruise In Toy Drive 2017 — The joy of helping others is something brings a smile to our faces, and it’s a pretty common thread in the collector vehicle community. These old cars aren’t necessary expenditures, so car people can spare a few bucks to help others. We wanted to give back to the community by hosting an annual toy drive event right here at our facility. Given the success of our Chattanooga Cruise In events, we knew this would be a great opportunity to get folks together and gather up some toys and donations for the local chapter Toys for Tots foundation. As with any November car event, the weather forecast was pretty iffy. In fact, there was a 90 percent chance of rain for Saturday, November 18th, which obviously affected the turnout of cars, but we still had more than 100 cars and trucks participate in the Chattanooga Cruise In Toy Drive. Thankfully, the rain held off long enough for us to have a great day on the streets of Chattanooga, watching the pile of toys grow by the minute.

By noon, we had gathered hundreds of toys and over $1,400 in T-shirt sales, which was donated directly to Toys for Tots. Thanks to Custom Werks Graphics for providing the shirts and print work for this excellent cause! Even though it was cloudy and windy, we enjoyed the fellowship and giving nature of the car guys here in the Chattanooga area. Coker Tire and Honest Charley opened the doors to the facility and welcomed visitors to tour the Coker Museum. We appreciate everyone for braving the iffy weather conditions to help us gather a bunch of toys and money for local families! Take a look at our photo highlights and be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, April 14th, 2018 for the spring Chattanooga Cruise In!

Talk about a hot paint job! This slammed Ford sports a wild set of flames, and of course some wide whitewall bias ply tires from Coker Tire.

Our buddy Michael from Street Rods by Michael drove his newest creation, a Ford-based bus with a modern drive train. Super cool!

Classic trucks were a big hit at the 2017 Chattanooga Cruise In Toy Drive. A great mix of Chevy, Ford and Dodge trucks filled the streets surrounding Coker Tire.

It’s all about the kids! We open our doors to people of all ages, and the kids love to explore the lobby and museum. Our number one goal is for our events to be safe and fun for the whole family. Join us next time!
