PORT JERVIS, N.Y.—Once a month during the summer, weather allowing, hot rods, custom cars, and custom trucks come out to cruise the streets of Port Jervis. Trophies are given and a D.J. plays music.
The July CurzinPort, after several rain delays, took place July 21, but the glittering cars remained parked. With over 200 cars on hand, organizers called off the cruising.
Augmenting the regular car aficionados taking part was the Street Rodder Road Tour, which stopped for the show on their way between Syracuse and Pottstown, P.A.
Organizer Sheri Butler, who started CruzinPort with her husband Harold in 2009, said the monthly summer events have become like a family reunion.
“It’s like the cousins and the aunts and the uncles that you don’t see that often,” she said. “It’s just a catalyst for people to come out and enjoy being together, more so than the vehicles.”
