Cruise-IN.com provides features for touring Indiana and beyond. New features include rediscovering highways and byways around Indiana, information about auto related events in the state, and a blog about celebrating car culture.

Indiana automotive historian Dennis E. Horvath’s Web site Cruise-IN.com provides new features just in time for the touring season. New features include Backroads: Rediscovering highways and byways around Indiana; Information about Indiana automotive exhibits and current events; and Car Culture: A blog about celebrating our car culture. Some of the new features are intended to share Hoosier automotive heritage and encourage touring around Indiana.

The Backroads section looks at Indiana routes like the National Road, the Lincoln Highway, and the Dixie Highway. Horvath believes that taking a trip on these routes allows drivers to experience travel before the advent of Interstate highways.

The Exhibits-Events share information about Indiana auto exhibits, events, and centennials. These features focus on sparking interest in getting involved and learning about the state’s automotive culture. Some of these events attract a worldwide audience to the Hoosier State.

The Car Culture blog is designed to generate interest across the wide spectrum of the auto hobby. This section presents historic as well as current items of interest for car nuts.

The Heritage section shares the pioneers, cars, companies, and mileposts in Indiana’s automotive heritage.

In our Bookstore you’ll find works by Dennis E. Horvath and Terri Horvath.

These sections compliment the Web site’s offerings, which provide the facts about the pioneers, companies, and communities who made automotive history.

Horvath’s passion for learning and sharing Indiana automotive history arose from his upbringing in Indiana and his involvement with autos in the early 1960’s. He is the co-author of three books Cruise IN: A guide to Indiana’s automotive past and present, Indiana Cars: A History of the Automobile in Indiana, and Hoosier Tour: A 1913 Indiana to Pacific Journey. He also is the Web publisher of the companion site Cruise-IN.com: Celebrating Indiana automotive history, which won an International Automotive Media Award — Silver Medallion for Excellence in 1999.
