Classic cars unfairly ticketed at Royal Oak

Classic car cruise nights at Royal Oak Shopping Center have been happening on Saturday nights for many years.

Classic car cruise nights at Royal Oak Shopping Center have been happening on Saturday nights for many years.

A month or so ago car clubs received a letter from the lawyers of the shopping center telling the car clubs to stop publicizing the cruise nights.

The car clubs complied with their wishes and didn’t attend. Many of stores realized they were missing out on business.

After a couple of weeks, we were invited back to the mall for Saturday cruise nights again. Last Saturday night, we were given tickets for parking at the mall, even if we were there shopping, just because we had classic cars.

Most car owners buy dinner at one of the many restaurants. Many owners do grocery shopping, pick up bread and meat, get gas and shop at the other stores there as well.

So needless to say, myself and many other classic car owners will not be spending a dime at the Royal Oak Shopping Center from now on (sorry to the owners of stores that really appreciated our business).
