UNION COUNTY TIMBER CRUSERS CAR CLUB
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. This is the last year Dennis will be providing this unique and special award.
