Salem Supercruise 2024 | News, sports, jobs


A brief rain shower at 5 p.m. did nothing but dampen the beautiful cars on display at this year’s cruise that were quickly dried off by their owners once the rain stopped, like Dave Flemming and his 1955 Chevrolet 210 Sedan.

In keeping with annual tradition, the Salem High School Pride of Salem Band performed the Star-Spangled Banner to kick off the official kickoff of the 2024 Salem Super Cruise.

The regulars at the Salem Super Cruise each year include a few real Hot Wheels trucks.

While many participants bring antique, show and muscle cars to the cruise each year, there are also many who bring completely unique creations and works of automotive art in the spirit of classic Rat Fink illustrations.

The 2024 Salem Super Cruise officially kicked off Thursday, marking the start of the upcoming weekend of automotive excitement. Each year during the cruise, participants from across the country arrive to share their hot rods, show cars, antique cars and one-of-a-kind creations with their fellow enthusiasts and the Salem community. Cruise director Dennis Plegge said he had seen license plates from places as far away as Texas, California and even Alaska.
