Pist’n Broke Cruisers since 2012
Back in December 2011, at a gathering of friends and family who shared the passion for classic cars, hot rods and the like, decided to organize a car club. One, where we could further ground our passion and enhance our car experiences through camaraderie, education among the club members and others, share ideas, all with social responsibility. Through organizational discussions and debates, Pist'n Broke Cruisers was formed.
It didn't take long for the word of our new organization to spread within our local community. Just after our formation, in the Spring 2012, we were asked to organize and operate a weekly Cruise Night on Webster Street in the Historic Downtown of North Tonawanda. Working with the Mayor and City Councilmen, in coordination with the Downtown Merchants, we launched our first Weekly Monday Night Car Cruise in the Summer of 2012.
The Webster Street Classic Car Cruise seen the growth over the next few years. It was often said "if you didn't get to the cruise by 5pm, you weren't getting in." This growth led Pist'n Broke Cruisers to look for another historic site in North Tonawanda.
At the end of summer in 2018, Webster Street Classic Car Cruise would become part of our club's history. A single phone call by one of our founding members and we had our new site.
In 2019, we launched Cruisin the Wurlitzer. Excited for our new venue at the Historic Wurlitzer Building, and the welcoming we received from the Bill Irr and Tom Austen Families (owners of this famous property), to include Platters Chocolate and other Wurlitzer Building tenants, we opened a new chapter for our club.
Today, we have reached new heights as being recognized as the Largest Weekly Car Cruise in Western New York...and we are still growing.
Thank you to all who have a part in making Cruisin the Wurlitzer a great success!
