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.

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. It’s great for display, and archive, but it doesn’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 on 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 is the Archive of all CRUISER NEWSER Issues So Far:
Here is a totally original and complete 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air. This car is unmolested, and ready for restoration or a drive in the country. Numbers matching 6 Cylinder engine and 3 speed transmission. Floorboards and trunk are solid, but some rust on rear quarter panel. New Battery, water pump, fuel pump, plugs, wires and points, new wheel and master cylinders. It starts right up and you can drive it home. It sounds good and runs smooth. Current Oregon tags. For more info, talk to Bob… the owner. Text or Call for Best Response (541)961-2688. …eMail firstname.lastname@example.org checked daily.
