Raymond Gannell, of Taylorsville, stands next to his 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible. Gannell said the vehicle was bought as a "rusted vehicle" about eight years ago and was treated to a full frame-off restoration. It has been running in its current form for about four years.

Cars are lined up on Sycamore Street next to the Polk County Courthouse in downtown Cedartown Friday for the monthly Cedartown Cruise-In. The event, normally held on the last Thursday of each month, was moved up a week so as not to conflict with next weekend's monster truck show at the county fairgrounds.

The monthly Cedartown Cruise-In car show got under way around 5:30 p.m. Friday in downtown Cedartown.
Dozens of classic vehicles from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and a few from the 1980s were on display. Vehicles were still arriving at 6:30 p.m.
The monthly event, usually held on the last Friday of each month, was moved up a week so as not to conflict with next weekend's monster truck show at the county fairgrounds. That show, sponsored by Old Skool Motorsports out of Ridgeland, S.C., will be held Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30.
Tonight's show will continue with music, cold treats, sodas and boiled peanuts on sale until after 9 p.m.
The car club's members are from Polk County and several contiguous counties.
