Marquette – September 8, 2012 – Hundreds drove by and stopped to admire the vintage steel. U.P. car lovers brought their vintage stock to Applebee’s. I enjoyed looking at coupes and sedans from the 1930’s, 1920’s Model T’s and A’s, 1960′ Road Runners, 1950’s Power Wagons, Fords original van delivery truck, and much more.
As I walked through the lines of steel I realized Applebee’s was already cooking those new “Southwestern Steaks” on the Two for $20 or 2 for $24 menu. The aroma from the cooks in the kitchen while dozens of families went inside to eat lunch was very enjoyable.

Applebee’s manager Jeff Kristola and uncle Don Kristola sponsored their 10th annual vintage car show event and Applebee’s gave 50 commemorative t-shirts away to the first 50 that arrived with their cars..
