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 Laurence’s Auto Body & Paint.

For the past two years, Dennis Hoyt, a renowned artist, has produced an amazing piece of art which is given as the “Participant’s Choice” award; an estimated value for each of these collector art piece’s is $4,500-$6,000.  For the 2016 car show, Dennis is sculpting the rear quarter panel of a 1957 Dodge (a photo will be posted in January or February).

Lewiston’s Hot August Nights Car Show

Dave & Tana McClay and Arlan & Mary Ann Miesner went to Lewiston, Idaho for their Hot August Night’s car show on August 27, 28, and 29. Unfortunately we didn’t win any awards; however, there was over 300 cars in attendance.  Each night there was a different event to attend.  On Thursday night Rogers Toyota hosted a large car show and barbeque.  Friday night had a huge cruise and the Lewiston car club invited us to attend their potluck dinner and to watch and/or participate in the cruise.  Saturday, of course, was the car show and a concert that evening featuring Colbie Caillat.

Enterprise Car Show

Four club members decided to go to the Enterprise car show on Saturday, August 15 instead of the Cherry Festival Parade.  Unfortunately no member’s car won an award; however, they all had a great time at the show.  Following the show they stopped at the Lostine Tavern for a piece of the renowned Chocolate Beet Cake.
