Arizona Cruisers and Demons

Image
When little boys grow up to be big boys, their toys get more expensive.  Many, like my husband, love their muscle cars such as the Dodge Challenger.  My hubby has a badass 2016 Challenger Shaker.  It is red, one of one, has Shaker across the doors on both sides, and roars loud enough to hear him coming.  Several times throughout the year, the Challenger Demons, and others Arizona clubs who love their mopar vehicles, take a daytrip or overnighters, and cruise together in their cars.  We have been on a couple of daytrips to small towns and had lunch with this wonderful group of people.  My hubby and his car have met their tribe.

Julia isn’t the only…
