The Big Show Is Over…
After almost a year of planning, topped by 2000 miles of walking in 3 days, the RnR show is now history.
Rhody Cruiser members have worked on the Committee, came down early to setup, provided “Visitor Services” for Friday’s Show, and even more staffed entry gates, Raffle Tables and helped with dozens of things that needed doing all weekend. Without rolling out a big list of names, I just want to thank those Volunteers who made this possible. I am proud, and feel like this is a Rhody Cruisers event almost as much as Florence Area Chamber of Commerce. …Thanx for playing with us.
Rods ‘n Rhodies Best of Show.
I almost fell over every time I walked by this Little Red Hot Rod. It is a 33 Ford 3 Window Coupe. A period correct dry lakes racer, from back in the day. The detail is amazing, and the overall look just knocks me out.
I doubt it has ever seen much salt, as it is a new build.
Everyone I talked to said…
“Yeah, Best of Show.”
Hey Dan… Mind if I take it around the block?

OregonCoastHotRods.com presented its coveted “Best Coastal Cruiser” award Sunday afternoon. This was NOT a tough choice for me, as I knew on Friday who won. As the moment arrived, I asked Russ to let me do the presentation. I wanted to explain that the award is not for the flashiest paint or most horsepower. I look for a car that has a family, a job, and takes care of the family, getting them home safe, …and looking really good doing it. … This winner joins a growing list “Coastal Cruiser” recipients now in the 4th year.
“It is my pleasure to present an award, that I didn’t pay for, to a car that was not entered.” and the winner is …..
A car that was workin’ at the show for 3 days. It pulls a 5800 pound trailer around and runs the best outdoor sound system ever.
This 1969 Chevelle Wagon, was built in the memory of his son. Owned and built by Russ Strohmeyer.
It was the Stro’s Show that kept everything grooving.
Russ Strohmeyer is President of the
Willamette Valley Street Rods

Sunday afternoon, after Football… Checking all my email addresses, hoping someone would write… YouTube did, so I’m checking out
Jay Leno and his ’52 MG TD HotRod… This MG is all HotRod.
I love the classic Fendered Roadster look, and american sound.
I’m a small car guy, and I have HotRodded British cars before… They really are small.
Jay Leno gets a little bitchy about the legroom as he hangs out with the builder.
