This Arizona get-together put on by Perfect Poise blends cruising into the traditional show-and-shine routine that we all know well. Cruise to the Pines started early on Saturday morning for a brief meet-up before the group revved up and mobbed the roughly 100 miles worth of highways from Phoenix to Prescott, Arizona. A scenic morning cruise in a ’bagged minitruck is good for the soul, and after a quick stop to regroup, the fleet of custom cars and trucks ended up at Embry-Riddle University for the second half of the event.

The wheels stopped turning, the engines cooled down, and the vehicles that made the cruise were detailed, shined, and judged for what would become a heated battle for a selection of highly desirable awards. Skateboard decks treated with slick airbrush, pinstripe, and leather work were up for grabs and definitely kept the contest interesting.

Need a little break from the norm? Ready to hit the road with some good people and show off your finished or in-progress build? If so, Cruise to the Pines is definitely for you.
