Williamson Road in Roanoke, Virginia, was a hot cruise spot in America in the 1950s and ’60s. There were disc jockeys spinning tunes from booths, drive-ins, live bands jamming in parking lots and, of course, the cars cruising up and down U.S. Route 11.“Cruising was a huge social scene in Roanoke,” said Antique Automobile Club of America president Tom Cox, adding that at age 53, he’s not old enough to have participated in the fun. “But I have a great many friends who did.”The Roanoke area resident attended the Woodward Dream Cruise in the early 2000s, and after seeing the shiny muscle and collector cars cruise up and down M-1, he felt inspired.
