In honor of their 75th birthday, the Krispy Kreme Cruiser will be driving all over the USA in 2012. On July 13th (Krispy Kreme's actual 75th birthday) the Cruiser will be in Winston-Salem, NC where they'll be commemorating the location of the first Krispy Kreme Doughnut shop.

    We got to meet Kim & Ron, the lucky husband & wife team who are on a year-long road trip, spreading doughnut cheer. This 1960 Flxible Starliner sure is a beaut!

    I LOVE the instrument panel. I could've shot it all day.

    The Cruiser even has a real "HOT DOUGHNUTS NOW" light!
