Reboot: Rhody Cruisers Year In Review

 

It’s redundant to say that 2020 has been an unusual year.

For a social club, it has been especially difficult, with social contact
being on the verge of criminal activity.

The Good News is that the prevailing conditions have caused greater self reliance. In the absence of Car Shows to attend, and Car Shows to Volunteer with, we came up with less complicated, maybe less legal ways to have fun. Instant Cruises popped up, along with a dramatic increase in the number of “Bay Street Roll” incidents. Let’s go to Yahats, and Mapleton, and Newport, and Toledo, and Bandon, and Coquille, and Winchester Bay, and North Bend and Lakeside. Let’s just drive and find someplace to take pictures. Let’s meet up with the US 101 Club, and Bay City Cruisers. Let’s hang out with the South Coast Cruisers, Mid-Valley Mustang & Ford Club, Over the Hill Gang, Stray Angels, and all their Friends. Lets BBQ and Picnic, and drive.

Our monthly Meetings have been outdoors, in the weeds at the ‘ol Lotus, and in the wind and cold at Miller Park. Still we munched A&W Burgers, while making plans for the next cruise, and settling club business.
Considering the limitations… I had a heck of a good time. 

Still, I hope each one of you can fabricate a Merry Christmas, and share your love with those close to you. A Happy New Year it will be …when when we can raise our hand and volunteer to help put on a Car Show. A Happy New Year …when we can meet early and Cruise the Coast… just to hang with friends and Strut our Stuff.

Rods ‘N Rhodies 2018 • Rear View Mirror

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?
Owned and Built by:
Dan & Connie Kimball

R ‘n R • Best Costal Cruiser

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

 

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. 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:
