The Spring Migration of Classic Cars to Nobscot

In the village of Nobscot, there's no surer sign of spring than the return of classic cars to Riley's Roast Beef on Saturdays. From 2 p.m. until late into the evening, when the weather cooperates the parking lot of the 1950s-style eatery at 911 Edgell Road is crammed with enough beautifully-maintained autos from Model Ts to 70s muscle cars to open a museum. Give most of the owners, often sitting in folding chairs near their beloved vehicles, half a chance, and they'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know, and more, about their cars.

Music from the 50s and 60s blaring from loudspeakers adds to the festive atmosphere, and trivia contests and raffles keep things interesting for both the car owners and spectators. And motorcycle and truck owners are also represented as well. The only requirement is that the vehicle be at least 25 years old.

So stop by, grab a burger and a drink, and enjoy Nobscot's best free outdoor entertainment!

Sadly it seems that is no longer Riley's... But has changed its name to Red Line Diner. Not sure why, new owners?

Yes, John, new owner, but not much else has changed - same menu, car cruise-in on Saturdays. The former owner I believe wanted to retire and was lucky enough to find someone to take it over. The sad thing would have been if it closed.

John's keeping up the traditions and the good food and prices... we enjoy eating at the Red Line Diner as much as we did when it was Riley's!

The Classic Cars are really very awesome cars and they are one of the best performance cars. Everyone love to own it and there are many classic car shows where you can find the best classic cars and know more about such amazing cars.
