Old Cars and a Few Old Trucks Visit Biloxi in 2011
Every fall, the Mississippi Gulf Coast is the home of an enormous car show. The cars are driven along Highway 90 adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico. People sit and watch for hours, and many take photographs. Being an observer is free, and the Gulf of Mexico offers a nice backdrop for great photography.
This event is held in early October, and includes two weekends, and the entire week between them. After going for three consecutive years, I can tell you the last Sunday is not prime viewing, since many cars leave early. But, the last Saturday is great.
The official name of this annual event is "Cruisin' the Coast."

Best Viewing of the Great Old Cars
There are places to sit and watch the old cars and trucks as they pass by, but it is difficult to get a good image of them with your camera. The other vehicles simply get in the way, or make an undesirable background. So sitting and watching, while enjoyable, is limited.
There are locations where the cars are parked, and you can walk righ up to them. You have to find these, and if you do you not only can have the car pose for the picture, but you can often get a look at the motor. Proud owners frequently have the hood opened, so you can just look in. And, if you want to know anything about the car, ask. Owners are usually very willing to discuss their prized car.
