Platte River Cruise, Food and Brew

North Platte’s third annual Platte River Cruise Night is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, July 10 & 11.

It is official! A piece of car culture and TV history, the Insane 54, along with Mat Fhuere, a native of North Platte, and the “King of Kustoms” Gene Winfield is coming to North Platte for the Platte River Cruise Night Car Show!

Gene and Mat will be bringing the project car from the final episode (86th episode) of Monster Garage, aired on the Discovery Channel and hosted by Jesse James. The Insane 54 is a 1954 Ranch Wagon that was chopped, channeled, pancaked, and pinked by Gene Winfield and Daryl Starbird. Plus our very own North Platte native, Mat Fhuere, from Mats Rods and Restorations will have a few cars on display.

Gene will also be holding metal shaping demonstrations throughout the day, will have merchandise on sale, and be available for autographs.

Gene and Mat will also be giving out a custom award for their choice or favorite car at the show.

Events include Rockabilly Pin-Up and Little Miss Contest; Live Music Featuring Van Cruelen and Easy Street; Car/Motorcycle Display; Kids Cruise; Vendors and Food Trucks.
