FLEETWOOD COUNTRY CRUIZE-IN IS BACK THIS WEEKEND

The Fleetwood Country Cruize In car show, is back THIS WEEKEND at the Plunkett Estate in London Ontario. The automotive event is hosted every year by Steve Plunkett.

The Fleetwood car show is known for having movie cars on hand for the public to see up close and personal, also while having automotive celebrities around to sign off autographs. The "Dukes of Hazzard" weekend held at the Plunkett Estate two years ago drew record crowds. On that occasion cast members arrived by helicopter. This year several cast members are returning. This weekend they will meet fans and sign autographs. General Lee Mechanic Tom Sarmento will be there too, and has offered to sign any Authentic General Lee Chargers, or tribute cars that car enthusiasts bring to the show. HE will also be signing die cast cars and other "Duke of Hazzard" memorabilia.
