Cruisin' the Dub is A&W's Classic Car program, reliving the 50's, 60's
and 70's (when cruisin' up to the restaurant was the fashion) at participating
restaurants each summer. With over 200 cruisin' locations, A&W invites local
classic and custom car clubs as well as traditional hot rod enthusiasts to
bring their vehicles out to the restaurants once a week for a show n' shine,
great music and to enjoy old memories and meet new friends. The classic fun is
served up with their favourite burgers from The Burger Family and topped off
with frosty A&W Root Beer.
In the summer of 2008, A&W hosted over 3,000 of these weekly traditions
at participating locations and are the largest organizer of classic and
collector car events in Canada.
The contest was a promotional partnership between A&W and the Chrysler
LLC Dodge Division for the launch of the new retro vehicle model the
Challenger, a muscle car legend brought back from the early 1970's with an
approximate retail value of $35,000 CDN.
