The sounds of fifties and sixties rock ‘n roll filled Library Square Friday night as the Black Knights Car Club held its first cruise-in of the season.

One of the most unique cars had to be Randy Colsrud’s 2001 S281 Saleen Mustang, boasting 500 horse and a five-speed with a speedometer showing a seductive 200 miles an hour.

“It will probably do about all of that,” said Colsrud.

Colsrud redid the hood, trunk and stereo.

“It’s made to race,” he said.

Ron Hoffmeyer’s ’71 Chevelle was some nice eye candy too. Hoffmeyer’s had the Chevelle, powered with a 350, for nearly 20 years.

So here’s the ultimate question: how fast will it go.

“About as fast as you want, I spose,” Hoffmeyer said.

If you missed them Friday night, you can see a lineup of Black Knights Car Club cars starting at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 26 during Chuckwagon Day in the NorthStar Bank parking lot at 2202 Central Ave. in Estherville.

Cruise-ins will continue the first Friday night of every month through the summer from 6:30-10 p.m. in Library Square. They’ll also be at Woody’s Pizza’s 50th anniversary.

The club will also hold its Sweet Corn Days car show Saturday, Aug. 6 from noon to 4 p.m. in Library Square.
