Cruiser Newser Archive

I bet you’ve noticed… There has been little new content for a while in the Rhody Cruisers Section.
Here is my excuse, and what I’m doing about it. 

The problem with an actual website is that the “User”, that’s you, has to navigate to it. It doesn’t come to you. Its great for display, and archive, but it dosen’t come to you. 
… eMail comes to you. So that seems the best way for me to reach you and keep you informed. 
The CRUISER NEWSER was born, and has been well received. 
I create the Newser in MailChimp, a graphics and eMail management software, separate from OregonCoastHotRods, built in WordPress. If I were to include all the news in the website, I would have to recreate it from scratch. Ummm… No.
But I can give them to you here, for you to browse. It’s really fun to go back in time and see what we were doing. I will update this list with each new one. 

Here are the Archive of all Cruiser Newser Issues So Far

Toledo Show. Hot Day ..Cool Cars

It was a great day for a car show in Toledo Oregon. It was warm but the shade from our canopies made it bearable. It was the 25th anniversary for the car show and there was a good turnout of cars from all makes and models, stock and modified, even some ratted out vintage motorcycles.  The Rhody Cruisers were well represented with 5 cars in attendance. Of the 5 cars, 4 received awards, a pretty good haul for the club. Gary Neil’s 1935 Ford won 2nd Place Best 30’s, Sandy’s pick up won Best Ford, Wiley Files’s ’60 Pontiac won 1st Place Best in Class 1960’s, and Brian Avery’s 55 Packard won the Ace Hardware Larry Hart Award. Larry Hart was the original owner of the local Ace Hardware store and the founder of the Toledo Car Show some 25 years ago. Also representing the Rhody Cruisers was Paul with his 1956 Chevy. A great time was had by all.

1947 Mercury Town Sedan – SOLD

As an active member of the Rhody Cruisers, this amazing Mercury Town Sedan has competed in hundreds of local and regional car shows, consistently winning awards for Best of Show, Best 40’s, Best Stock, and Peoples Choice. The car has been driven about 1,000 miles per year to Shows and Parades. It is always clean, serviced, and ready to roll down the road on a moment’s notice.

This 1947 Mercury Town Sedan was completely restored by the current owner. The frame off restoration took 7 years, of finding the correct parts, chasing all the details, and maintaining a high level of craftsmanship. The restoration was finally completed in 2005. The car is completely stock, with the exception of a few upgrades to enhance reliability and safety. More Restoration Story:

reRun… Leno’s Hot Rod MG TD

mqdefaultSunday 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.
— It’s a well produced Hot Rod Story. Crank up the volume! … WATCH IT HERE
