Carson-Newman University celebrated its homecoming weekend in style.

On Friday night – the university celebrated with a "Blast to the Past" cruise-in car show.

The show featured dozens of classic cars from just about every era.

Robert Greene, a car enthusiast, shared the special story behind his ride.

"My wife passed away 4 years ago. I was a little lonesome without her so I bought this car to restore," said Greene. He said he spent the next four years working on it before he drove it out of the garage.

CNU's homecoming festivities continue later this weekend. The parade is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. Saturday. The game begins an hour later.
