Estacada had "Fun, Fun, Fun" at vintage car cruise-in

Dozens of super shiny vintage cars lined the streets around Fourth and Main Saturday, Aug. 8, and lots of folks came out on a beautiful day to admire them.

“They are beautiful,” said Estacada resident Gladys Bateson, “I’m absolutely amazed at how many cars there are.” She said it was her first visit to the yearly cruise-in and deemed it “awesome.”

This was the 10th annual cruise-in benefitting the Estacada Food Bank. It was free to ogle the cars, but the owners paid $15 to participate. Money was also raised with a silent auction and a drawing.

Cars from multiple decades were on display in every vibrant color on the spectrum.

Estacada resident Mike Bissonette said he came to the cruise-in last year. “It brings back memories of growing up,” he said. “I think it is just great, we need more of these kinds of things.”

Bill Jordan, who lives near the Barton Bridge, brought his 1939 Ford to display. He’s owned it about a year and it was totally restored when he bought it.

Jordan yearns for a 1954 Buick convertible, but hasn’t found one in his price range. Meanwhile, he likes showing his classic Ford. “It’s something to do. It’s a lot of fun.”
