About Us

In 2012 we actually became a structured nonprofit club with bylaws, officers and dues. We are located in the heart of Texas. When the original group here in Brownwood who had put on the show for years could no longer do it, the hearts of three guys, Wayne Creel, Donnie Seal, and Paul Peck, just could not let it die out; so began the Heartland Cruisers. Now it is a growing group with as many diverse cars as people and personalities.

During the year we participate in many activities. The big event is our Rod Run the first weekend in June with entries from everywhere you could imagine.

We also hold a car show in conjunction with the Brownwood Reunion in the colliseum in September.

We meet almost every Tuesday night and get together either for a short cruise, or to go out to eat, or we hold Cruise Nights the first Tuesday 9 months out of the year at the Sonic in Early, Texas. If you get a chance come join us.

In some form or fashion we participate in approximately 40 events over the year. You know, there are only 52 weeks in a year, but who is counting when you are having fun.

What a Great Group we have, and thanks to all that pitch in and make it happen. Come see us and be part of the fun.
