On August 26th we met in Canby at Oh-Dark-30 at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds and drove into the Cutsforth Canby Cruise-In. The photos below are from Jim Sweet and John Sailors. It was a beautiful sunny, and a bit warm day. I think all of those attending had a great day. With about 800 cars to view there was plenty to do, lots of walking available, and lots of sitting to just watch others walking by viewing our cars. Take a look at these photos and more comments below them.
The blue '64 Thunderbird convertible and blue '72 Mustang Mach 1 both belong to club member Don Smith. The '64 belonged to club member Ron Bartlett, Don acquired it shortly after Ron passed away. The '72 Mustang he purchased from Zane Clark earlier this year a few months before Zane passed away. Zane ordered this Mustang new in 1972 as a special order with a rare blue paint, and a rare 4-speed transmission (most of them had automatics). Zane seldom drove the car and always bragged that the tires still had Detroit air in them. Don has done a lot of work cleaning it up and getting it road-worthy. He wanted to take Zane for a ride in it when he had it ready but Zane passed away before that could happen.
You will see an eclectic selection of photos Jim and I took, everything from golf cart frames supporting replica Bumper Cars and Little Red Wagons to a very nice General Lee replica, it even had the proper horn (playing Dixie) as the one on the TV show did. There were numerous Woody 1949 & 1950 Ford station wagons. In the last photo you can see John Calkin holding a trophy, we have no idea what it is for. Someone with the Cruise-In came up and gave it to him just saying "here". Thanks to Jim Tyson for making the arrangements for us to get in as a group.
