We’ve been travelling through California and Oregon for the last several weeks. (You can catch up on our travel blog here.)
One of the joys of travelling is seeing vehicles you don’t normally see at your local car shows. One of the best way to see a bunch of cars is to visit a small town parade. We were lucky enough to be in Gold Hill, Oregon the first Saturday in June for their annual Gold Rush Days event and parade. We were hoping to catch the Gold Hill Rat Rods that were supposed to be in attendance but they weren’t there. Still and all, we saw some great cars. In no particular order, here are the highlights:
*Side note: this T-bird is in spectacular condition*
*Side note: while this was the only true hot rod of the bunch, it is a phenomenal car*
*Side note: this car actually came through the parade early on. We’ve saved it here for last because it contained Miss Orpha Martin Thumler, class of 1947 and she was a kick! She was tooting that horn and waving for all she was worth*
We love small town parades, especially when they include old cars. Stay tuned as we attempt a rather large and some would say impossible undertaking related to these small town parades and car shows.
