    Clarence Steineke's 1956 Chevrolet Delray 210 is parked on Colby Avenue in Everett during the 2012 Cruzin' to Colby. Steineke has had the car since graduating from high school.

Cruzin' to Colby is a rolling tribute to the automobile.
It's also a hot-rod nod to the nostalgic time in Everett when you could grab your favorite girl and your treasured T-bird and cruise the city's main drag, showing off your wheels.
Those bygone times make a return each year on Memorial Day weekend when Cruzin' to Colby revs up in downtown Everett.
The event starts at 1 p.m. Sunday with the Cruise on Colby Avenue, when about 400 cars roll through the streets as throngs of onlookers admire the machinery.
There's a public dance from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, 3105 Pine St., Everett, featuring the Wright Brothers Band. Admission is $5 per person.
The free Show 'n shine is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday.
Spectators can walk among the parked beauties, ogle the chrome and ask questions of the owners.
Entertainment is provided by the Wright Brothers Band and Danny Vernon Illusions of Elvis. There's an award presentation from 3 to 4 p.m.
The car club the Seattle Rod-Tiques, made up of members mostly from Snohomish and Skagit counties, has hosted Cruzin' to Colby since 1999.
The club's mission is to promote family fun, community awareness by raising funds for various charities, and car and driving safety. The club donates thousands of dollars each year to many charities, according to their web site.
