The Valley Cruzers is a family oriented car club, based in the beautiful Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Our club is open to all makes and models of cars and trucks, whether you have a Model T or a brand new vehicle. And don't worry, many of our club member rides are "works in progress." We have cruises all summer long! Check out our Events page to view full schedule.
Our History: A flyer on the bulletin board of the local grocery store was all it took. The year 2000 marked the Cruzers' first summer together, boasting a membership of almost 40 cars. By fall of 2001 the Cruzers had grown with over 150 members. Sporting cars from a 1933 fab Ford to a 2006 vamp Vette. If it has 4 wheels it can roll with the Cruzers!
Our first years have brought together a lot of wonderful cars, er... we mean people! As you can probably guess, our cars hibernate during the cold winter months in Alaska. But, just watch the Cruzers start appearing as soon as the snow begins to melt. Some just wait until the streets are dry. Here in the Valley you can tell when spring is here, not by the crocus or daffodils, but rather by the first sighting of Cruzers on the road.
In trying to make the Cruzers presence known, we've made it a point to have a current member at all auto functions. Trying to tell the fine upstanding motor-head citizens from the rest of the crowd is easy for the general public. Just look for the Valley Cruzers club jackets! We proudly sport the Alaska state colors, blue and gold.
We have weekly runs, barbeque fun runs, and the KOOL cruise with 97.3 radio, yearly. Most Sunday's you can find a pack of the speed-freak Cruzers at the Alaska Raceway Park or North-Star Speedway. There are two things that will bring our group together: food and iron! The food can be hot or cold and the iron running or not.
The Cruzers' host Alaska's biggest classic car show, "Hot Summer Nights." Alaska car clubs come together for our rendition of the Lower 48, "Hot August Nights." The Valley Cruzers Hot Summer Nights is held in Palmer, Alaska. In 2002 we had over 600 cars participate from all over the state! This is quite the accomplishment for our club. We are growing each year by leaps and bounds. We hope to have you join the club in 2013.
