Hundreds flock to Old Town Sherwood for Cruisin' Sherwood
Hundreds of people poured into Old Town Sherwood Saturday for the 27th Annual Les Schwab Tire Centers' Cruisin' Sherwood Classic & Custom Car Show. Despite a little rain earlier in the day, sunny skies appeared a short time later.
In addition to more than 400 classic and custom cars, attendees were treated to vendors selling a variety of foods and other fare including a beer garden and performances by several area bands. Among those bands was 99W, composed of local musicians (including lead singer Scot Gavic, manager of the Sherwood Walmart), cranking out classic rock.
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.
