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.
There were seven club members who travelled to Enterprise’s 1st car show. Wallowa Valley has many unique cars that we haven’t seen at any other car show. Following the show several of us decided to try out the Lostine Tavern for an early dinner – some of us won’t be able to go there in September with the rest of the club for dinner. Even though no one won any awards we had a great day of visiting and sharing stories.
Twelve car club members ventured to Union for the Grassroots Festival and Car Show on Saturday, August 9. Five of the club members were rewarded with a trophy from sponsoring businesses; unfortunately, two of those winning classic cars we do not have pictures of at the moment – those photos will be coming.
Five club members went to the Prairie City car show on August 2. Two cars got awards: Ed & Dixie and Arlan & Mary Ann.
