Brazil resident Eric Jensen, who accidentally organized the “Cruising Brazil” Saturday night, was unable to be found among all the people who showed up for a trip back to nostalgiic days of "bopping around town. Jensen posted the idea on Facebook and idea just “grew legs and took off.” It was unclear how many people showed up to participate in the fun, or just to watch the cars go by, but there were hundreds of cars and two lanes of bumper-to-bumper traffic to watch the during fun event. Many of the parking lots along US 40 in Brazil became small car shows as more vehicles of all kind pulled over and people walked around to look at them, and talk about the "good old days." Engines roared, horns honked, people waved and yelled greetings to those they knew, and cameras and phones were everywhere recording the family event. Many people enjoyed the event so much, they want to do it again, and bring their friends next time.
