Cruisin’ the Coast means big bucks for Mississippi – The Meridian Star

Gulfport resident Lisa Evans said traffic might be a bear during the car celebration, but she is still a big fan. She has chatted up car enthusiasts showing off their ‘57 Chevy Bel Airs or antique vehicles from the 30s to learn more about the thousands of dollars – and hours – folks have put into their automobiles.

She usually sets a blanket out on the beach in Gulfport and lazily watches all the classic cars go by. Evans recently wrote a book: 100 Things to Do in Coastal Mississippi Before You Die. Cruisin’ the Coast, of course, made the list.
