From the Staff

By David Marin & The CruZin' Staff

Seems like just a week or two since we loaded the CRUZIN’ booth into the Excursion, prodded the diesel to life and headed for the Early Bird Swap Meet at Puyallup. That was February, roughly eight months ago. Read that as many thousands of miles back, the odometer has rolled through Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California. The one constant is the great folks we connect and reconnect with along the way. Indoor shows, outdoor rod runs, familiar faces, new acquaintances. Read More!

Portland’s More than Just a Car Show

Photos & Story by Bob Roseberry


The Portland Roadster Show is a family event. That’s a term that has become nearly a cliche`, for almost all public events anymore, and true here as well. Portland is also a community event, another cliche`, perhaps, but again true. Every year, in addition to the expected crowd of solid gearheads, the Expo Center is full of kids, moms, dads, grandparents and members of the general public, who, if not part of the car world, are clearly grooving (to use a semi-outdated term) on the cars and the spectacle.

Ocean Shores Warm & Dry for High Rollin’ Hot Rods

Bracketed between two days of crummy weather, the 2015 edition of High Rollin’ Hot Rods at the Quinault Beach Casino, seemed to be on an island of sunshine, mild temperatures, and light breeze. In fact, on the way home, before we were half-way to the I-5 corridor, we were attacked by a blinding downpour! Once home, we found that rain had been the order of the day, all day, everywhere else, so in the common parlance — the show “lucked out” — and those who the weather scared off “missed out”.

Old School House Rock Rolls Through Superior

Photos & Story by Jerry Brenner

Superior, Montana – June 6, 2015 saw an impressive assortment of 107 collectible vehicles rumble onto the grounds of the old Superior School House in downtown Superior. This was the “Sweet 16” edition of School House Rock, and participants and spectators were “kickin’ it old school”. Non-stop DJ “Johnny T” wound up his “Time Machine” and the Fifties and Sixties music just kept on coming. Read More!

Photos & Story by Diane & LeRoy Dyas

True to tradition, the Heap Herders Car Club offered free registration for their “Spring Bling” Car Show, April 25, 2015 at Caldwell Memorial Park, Caldwell, Idaho. But, they do ask for donations on behalf of the Canyon County Organization on Aging (CCOA) Food Bank, in the form of non-perishable food items or cash. Read More!
