OK, you can stop with the phone calls and the e-mails, the CruZin' Calendar of Events is here, right in the middle of this magazine -- eight pages, hundreds of events, all of which have been verified by phone, e-mail and/or snail mail. But, know this, while every effort is made to make certain listings in the calendar are correct, there will be glitches. The glitches occur, generally, because events change their dates after our calendar has been printed. The bottom line is, the calendar comes to you with this "disclaimer". Call ahead and verify what is happening, and when it's happening. Read More!

We are going to talk about "records" here, justified or not, but it's real easy to try looking for records at any show. Goodguy's is no exception. Read More!

What a wonderful day! The sun was shining, the grass was green, at least where you could see it between the rows of awesome cars and trucks at the "No Veteran Forgotten" Show & Shine held at Riverside Park in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. Read More!

Another great show in Duvall, Washington, opened, June 2, 2012, with an overcast day. I couldn't help but hear Nat King Cole in my head, "Bring back those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer". Of course, the barbecue grill with the brats certainly helped keep that song stuck in my head. Read More!

Visitors to the Toledo Lions Club Classic Car Show had to be impressed by more than the weather on Saturday. All over the grounds at Toledo Middle School were 315 classic cars and hot rods from throughout Western Washington and Northwest Oregon. Ron Smith started the show in conjunction with the local Cheese Day festival in 2001 and continues to be instrumental in sustaining the event. The key is to procure sponsors for all of the trophies that the show provides, making it one of the largest shows in the region. Read More!

If you remember "back in the day", and most of us do, you'll remember the Midnight Cruizers and their highly regarded show at Rainbow Falls State Park. That event went on for something like 35 years before the State messed things up and the show closed down. Read More!

Genesee, Idaho - Even with occasional downpours, winds and threat of hail, this annual show went on as usual. Organizer Charley Rennaker, an energetic soul with an extreme passion for all things auto, did a great job getting volunteers together, gathering sponsors including Pacific NW Farmers Cooperative, Roach Construction, Wilbur-Ellis and the McGregor Company for registration cards, trophies and door prizes and then making the day enough fun for all to bring cars from all over the region on a day only fit for ducks!

Eagle River, Alaska -- Well, except for the construction work in the parking lot and the crummy weather, 2012 was another amazing year at the Henry J. McDonald Ice Arena. Promoter Derek Snelson's Eagle River Custom Car & Cycle Show offered up more "new" eye candy than ever before. Read More!

Bend, Oregon is in the high desert volcano country, surrounded by ranches, rivers and volcanic peaks. Not far from Flashback's Friday "prefunction" at Smolich Motors is Pilot Butte, itself an ancient volcanic cone. From the top, the near and far horizon is dotted with a myriad of cones, as well as mountains like Bachelor and the Sisters. Bend itself is a full service small city still aware of its ranching heritage, but clearly in the modern world as well. It's full of trees, the Deschutes River and assorted parks, one of them Drake Park, right on the aforementioned River, which is where the main event of the Flashback Cruz takes place. Now that we have reacquainted you with the City of Bend, what about the show itself? Read More!
