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.

We also organize the “Grande Ronde-A-View Weekend” Car Show in La Grande, Oregon, the third weekend of July sponsored by Baxter Auto Parts, M.J. Goss Motors, La Grande Gold & Silver, The Market Place and joining as a sponsor for the 2015 car show, Laurence’s Auto Body & Paint.

Hermiston Classic Car Show

Three of our members took their classic cars over the hill to attend the Hermiston Classic Car Show on Saturday, July 11.  The cars were not judged by classes but rather by the sponsor’s choice.  Arlan and Mary Ann were lucky to win the award presented by Ferranti – Graybeal Insurance  plus they also won two really nice raffle items:  $50 and a folding chair.  Jim and Mary won an orange hat!!!!  Jerry won the right to say he was in the presence of winners!!!!

Elgin Riverfest Car Show

Fifteen of our club members displayed their classic cars on Saturday, June 20, at the Elgin Riverfest Car Show.  At least four of our member’s cars received awards; however, everyone had a great time visiting and enjoying all the great cars at the show.  The group decided to place John in jail all for a small donation to the Elgin Lion’s Club; however, John had to pay an additional donation to be released!!!!  To bad we couldn’t have left him there!!!!!!
