The love in Stayton is spreading. I posted a photo of a love truck I spotted off of 3rd Ave. a few months ago, and who would have guessed that I’d find another one over the weekend. My friend Jeff told my they belong to Trask Mercantile on 3rd., and I just want to thank them for showing the love.
Last night was the first car show at the A&W Restaurant on Washington St. last night, and I took a ton of pictures (gallery below). I will post more photos from the car show tomorrow.
When I was there, show runner (and awesome photographer) Russ Stromeyer announced there were over 130 cars there, which was a record for the car shows. There were so many, they ended up having to line the street because they wouldn’t all fit in the parking lot. That’s pretty impressive.
There will be more car shows (the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month through early September, I believe), so I may attend more before the summer is over.
Guest photographer Tom Miller had some good timing to catch this plane going over this cool old truck. Thanks, Tom!
For the curious, Stayton doesn’t actually have an airport.
I stopped on one of the little dead end streets off of Ida St. the other day, and noticed I could see the back of Norpac Cannery from there. Some sort of machinery was loading some sort of green stuff into the back of some sort of truck.
Can you tell I know pretty much nothing about how the cannery works? Or anything else?
