While every auto had a story, many event-goers were intrigued by Mike Ray's 1950 Cadillac hearse (with the original engine no less). Ray, a Wilsonville resident, purchased it three years ago after finding it sitting off of the Sunset Highway. In addition to the standard renovation needed, Ray added a few personal touches including skull headlines his wife found online and an empty casket placed in the back.
