The Ranger Station will be hosting a 20th Anniversary Trail Ride in Ohio on 09/07/2019. That's the weekend after Labor Day. I was wondering what you guys thought about a cruise in for the street trucks on Labor Day weekend 2019? It would be back to back anniversary events on separate weekends.

Not sure where we could do this at, or in what area of the country. I will obviously be leaving Texas and going back to Ohio for the anniversary trail ride on 09/07/2019. Somewhere in NE Ohio would be good, but I'm flexible.

Any suggestions?

So what if we own a former STOTM that’s now a 4x4? Would it qualify for both? Lol

You could try Quaker Steak and Lube in Valley View. They host car shows, bike shows, and the Cleveland 4 Wheel Parts events.

It doesn't matter what you drive. If you're interested in meeting up with other Ford Ranger / Bronco II owners, in a parking lot setting instead of a trail ride, then this would be for you.

Thanks. I'd like to get Cleveland 4Wheelparts to sponsor our 09/07/2019 Anniversary Trail Ride at Southington Offroad Park, just like 4Wheelparts did with our early trail rides.

So, little interest in a cruise in?

If it were in Illinois or Indiana I'd show up in my 87 V8 truck.

For some reason I thought you were in Toledo OHIO. LOL.

NE Ohio Street Truck Roundup

Valley View QS&L would work.

I also could reach out to one of my old FORD clients and see if they wanted to sponsor it. To get them to play I would need a rough head count. Bob Gillingham Ford in PARMA, OH is a strong supporter of car/truck shows, and a great guy as well.

Do you think we could get many people to come out if it was in Valley View (Cleveland) Ohio?

Are there any businesses that might want to be a sponsor?

Getting a head count this early would be difficult. We'd probably be lucky to get a dozen or (2) people to actually bring their Ranger (or Bronco II) out. More may come if there were going to be door prizes, or other things to do than just stand around in a parking lot.

I could use the (2) $25.00 gift cards that LMC Truck gave me. They also gave me the cards for vehicle owners to fill out and put in their windshield for car shows.

What could we do?

Cruise in
Show and Shine
An actual cruise route

I'd actually like to have a gathering at the Michigan Assembly Plant where the new Ranger is being built. I just don't have a lot of confidence in people to show up.

If you can get it around the weekend of the ride it would probably help. Taking another day or two off is one thing, hanging around for a couple weeks or getting back out there is another.

It would have to be the same day. People will get in on Ftiday night, and want to head home Sunday morning.
