Rumble on the Turnpike
Ever since I moved away from Meriden I wondered if I'd miss the late night rolls on the Berlin Turnpike, hearing the roar of 500 plus horsepower engines in the distance... stopping for ice cream at a Burger King and getting a full blown car show at 6, 7, 8 or 9 o'clock at night.
Well here's proof that I do miss it. I just happened to be in the "neighborhood" this weekend and decided to see if there was any action on the strip... and there was. I don't think I've ever seen this spot this packed. What I like is that it's consistent.. and doesn't seem planned. The cars come and go.
Some people are regulars.. but there's always great cars that look great and sound great. I hope they keep it up. This particular spot is closer to or on the Newington side of the turnpike. On the flip side of this, I don't think I would do this with my car if i could (I'd have to have the car first though.) Enjoy the pictures and video. You'll see my son in a lot of the shots.
