The Banshees visit Cruise Night at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum
Wes Cogger has run a car enthusiasts’ club for more than 50 years.
“We call ourselves ‘The Banshees,’ ” said Cogger of White Lake Township, who owns eight classic cars and plans to drive his 1934 Plymouth Coupe to the Walter P. Chrysler Museum’s first of three Cruise Nights (weather permitting) in Auburn Hills on Wednesday June 27.
“We have about 20 in the club,” Cogger said.
On the museum’s first Cruise Night, one of three to be held this summer, attendees will see row upon row of performance and muscle cars.
All makes and models are welcome. “Extreme Performance” is the night’s theme. The cost is $5 for each show car of $3 a person at the door. The event features “Best Of” awards, food, music and self-guided museum tours. Check the website www.wpchryslermuseum.org for weather delays, posted by 2:30 p.m. on the day of cruise.
The museum staff welcomes people to take self-guided tours on Cruise Nights. The museum, which opened Oct. 5, 1999, pays tribute to the cars, people, processes and contributions made by Chrysler and its forebears to the development of the automobile.
The three-story, 55,000-square-foot museum — which sits on 10 acres at the southeast edge of the Chrysler Headquarters Complex in Auburn Hills — will also welcome cruisers on July 25 and Aug. 22.
Cogger invited all car lovers out for this year’s inaugural Cruise Night.
“It’s for everyone who enjoys the camaraderie of people interested in cars,” Cogger said.
