Get your self around the city from first Friday of May-upto October,
there is unorganized cruising around town that just happends every first friday of the summer months. It starts appr. 8pm from market square and continues late night around town. Choose between shiny old cars at Market square- or OLD ice hall parking lot (burning out tyres wildly). You can take tram number 3 to ice hall. Best way is of course to cruise with your own yankee iron.

Helsinki cruising has started 1982 and continued monthly after that. Normal evening appr. 500 old vehicles cruise around the city.
Best evenings there has been estimated over 30 000 people on the ice-hall parking lot

This happens also in other cities and small towns, but its not so big as in Helsinki. try googling after cruising word
