Guest photographer Jon Goodman spotted this bit of automotive awesomeness:
Saw this beautiful hood ornament on a 50′s era Buick across from Cascade Pro Auto. They really don’t make cool stuff like this anymore.
No, they sure don’t, and it’s a shame. Thanks, Jon!
I found this group of bumper stickers on a car in a parking lot on Shaff Rd. the other day rather striking. the car’s owner obviously (and rightfully) takes a lot of pride in having been a marine and a veteran of the Vietnam War.
Return visitors know I’ve been posting photos from the Santiam SummerFest, which was held a week ago Saturday, for over a week (with one exception). But today we have the final day of photos (see also: car show part 1, 3-on-3 basketball, animals, people, bed races, Brown House, and stuff) from the event, which is a relief. I had to go through 1140 photos from that day, which is why I spread it out so much. But this is the end of all things SummerFest, until next year.
This is, of course, part 2 of the car show. There were so many pretty cars, and I didn’t get to nearly enough of them. I tried my best, though.

I attended the Stro’s Wednesday Nite Cruise-In car show (they’re held twice a month during the summer) last night at A&W Restaurant. I could have sworn I didn’t take very many photos, but I ended up with about 65 I wanted to post. So, once again, I’m spreading out the photos over today and tomorrow. So come back again to see more pretty cars.

As mentioned yesterday, here’s part two of the photos from the Stro’s Wednesday Nite Cruise-In, held at the A&W Restaurant on Washington St. a few evenings ago.
The car above is a heavily adapted 1951 Nash Super Statesman Airflyte. I know this because a kind soul over on Google+ pointed me to an article which talks about the car. The car really quite trippy and awesome.
There’s another view of the car in the thumbnails below, as well as several other photos of other sites at the car show. Click on each of them to see them larger.
Guest photographer Patrick spotted some very pretty cars out there in the wilds. His description:
When I saw these two cars parked side-by-side, I thought of you. Tis the season when a lot of these vintage cars start showing up in town. Yet, these cars also remind me of my childhood for we at one time had a ’56 Bel-Air and a ’65 Mustang (although I didn’t check for the year on either of these). The shot has a lot of glare, fittingly corresponding with the
haziness of memories in those cars.
A great time for cars… I especially love the Mustang. Thanks, Patrick!
Guest photographer saw this rather cool race car in a parking lot a couple of days ago. His description:
You had a shot of a high boy a couple of days ago, here’s a shot of a low boy… I had to stop by WilCo today for some dog food and parked beside this Doerfler Farms race car. I think it’s a circle track racer and in really good shape. A lot of times this type of racer has a lot of bumps and bruises but I didn’t see any on this one. Anyway, it has a very nice paint job.
