By David Marin & The CruZin' Staff

OK, here we go with Volume 30, Number 1 of Cru- Zin' Magazine. Starting it off right with the highly anticipated 2017 Calendar of Events... you know, the most accurate events calendar out there.


We're starting the year off with a "shout out" to our readers. Thank you for your support over these many years. We couldn't do it without you! Read More!


Push-Rods Score Another Hit on the Banks of the Hoquiam

Photos & Story by Bob Roseberry

Washington's Grays Harbor County is a hot bed of gear head activity. It has been for years although, on the face of it, this wouldn't appear likely. Composed of a scattering of smallish towns, mostly rural, with their backgrounds in logging, fishing, farming, and related industries, the County would hardly seem a likely home to an enthusiastic and sophisticated vintage automotive community. And yet it is! Read More!


July's for Cruisin' in Vancouver

Photos & Story by Bob Roseberry

The 2016 edition of Cruisin' the Gut opened dry, warm and, thankfully, nowhere near as "toasty" as the previous year. In what has seemly become typical, the morning appeared a little slow (of course, we arrive pretty early) - a few cruisers on the move - but clearly this was the calm before the storm. It picked up! Once 10:00 AM (the "official" start) passed, Main Street quickly became a rolling car show; rods, customs, trucks and cycles interspersed with "civilian" vehicles whose drivers were there for the fun, or as event sparkplug Phil Medina puts it, there "to see and be seen". After all, that's the way it was "in the day".  Read More!

Photos & Story by Pete Griffin

June 19, 2016 in Lynden, WA started out overcast and a little chilly but the rain held off and we had a great show. A total of 137 cars and trucks registered even with the weather looking so ominous. We had entries from Canada to Seattle and parts in-between. 16 different car clubs were represented and many more unaffiliated entrants. We awarded 21 trophies and gave away over $1500.00 in raffle prizes. Read More!

Goodguys Pacific NW Nationals Aging Gracefully

Photos by Bob Roseberry & David Marin Story by Bob Roseberry

Wow! What's happening? All our favorite events are pushing three decades (or more). The 2016 edition of the Goodguys Pacific Northwest Nationals, at Puyallup, was number 29! That means that kids born to a gearhead family that first year are probably parents by now, have built one or more cars, and hopefully were at the 2016 event with their car(s) and kids. Kind of puts things in perspective, doesn't it? Read More!
