OCEAN CITY, Md.-  Cruising weekend is all about the cars.  The smell of burning rubber and the sound of rumbling V8 engines.  Many people, like Courtney Spade and her husband, like to watch the cars during the day.

"We like to go out later at night when there's a little more action, but for now it's just cool to watch the cars go by," said Spade.

Another reason people stop to smell the roses is because in a typical car show, you are the one who goes from car to car.  Here, you just sit down, and the car show comes to you.

"Well you see a whole lot more cars.  At a regular car show you don't see as many cars as you do here," said Henry Conner of Millsboro.

Conner and his wife drove their 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air here.  He loves seeing the cars up close while they are parked, and then roaring down the road from his chair.  He joins them from time to time.

"We get in the car, we take a cruise up the road, come back.  It's an all day thing.  You just go in and out," said Conner.

The spectators sit high and low.  They are young, and young at heart.  But they all love old cars.

"The newer ones like the new mustangs and corvettes are nice, but I'd rather have old cars," said Gunner Johansen of Preston.

For some, it's an appreciation for what could be considered fine art.

"A new cobra or something, it's going to sound like that you know?  But these boys, they put time and effort into these cars.  They actually found the parts and everything, that's what I'm looking for," said Charissa Hankins.

By sitting on the sidelines, you get to see each of these works of art as they rumble by.
