In 2006 a group of car enthusiasts decided to start a classic car club which was the start of the Union County Timber Cruisers Car Club.  Our members enjoy driving their unique vehicles and going on special trips for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  During the summer months you will find us on Friday nights at The Gas Station (Texaco on Adams) where we enjoy an evening of food, camaraderie, and solving world problems plus unraveling the mysteries of car troubles.

Snake River Car Show in Huntington, OR on September 3 – won Mayor’s Choice for 1956 Bel-Air


On a beautiful but cool morning, 18 of our club members had lunch at the Rimrock Café located 27 miles north of Enterprise, OR.  We had a little contest on the way up to the restaurant, for $1 folks bought a sticker or more and placed them anywhere on the front of their car.  Whoever got a bug closest to the center of the sticker, won the money.  Ironically,  when we got to the restaurant, no one had a bug on their sticker, but when we came out one had landed dead center on John & Virginia Lackey’s sticker.  Upon closer observation, it was discover that a 2nd prize went to Dave & Tana McClay because a bug had hit their sticker but didn’t stick.  The 3rd prize went to Ed & Dixie Lund who had a bug 2″ from their sticker and the 4th winner was Arlan & Mary Ann Miesner who landed a bug about 3″ from their sticker.
