We want to thank all of the owners for taking the time to share their vehicles with our community. The Heartland Cruisers organize and put on the show for the Brownwood Reunion who finances it for the community.

Also, we want to thank all of the guys and gals who on the day of the show agreed to fill in all of the spaces that were left open by cars who were unable to attend due to weather.

The information for each car was gathered by our club president, Tim Buris. Photos were taken by Donna Peck with an old 3G Iphone.

If you are the owner of one of these cars and would like to correct or add to the bio information please email me.
