THIS SHOW'S A CLASSIC
When too many collector cars show up to be exhibited, you know youve got a successful show and thats exactly what happened Sunday at the 17th-annual Oswego Heritage Council Collector Car & Classic Boat Show in Lake Oswego.
We got more cars than we had space for, says Nancy Niland, who was directing her first show as the councils new executive director.
More than 5,000 people attended the show, which featured 250 vintage cars, 40 classic boats and a visit from the only World War II-era PT boat still operating on the water today.
Car owners frustrated in their desire to exhibit their cars simply parked them around the perimeter of George Rogers Park. Meanwhile, water-sport lovers flocked to Sundeleaf Plaza and Foothills Park to see the boats and a waterskiing extravaganza on Lakewood Bay.
On Sunday night, there were plenty of kudos to pass out.
It was more clear than ever that the true stars were our Lake Oswego community that stepped up and supported our show, says OHC board member Bonnie Trumbull, from our premier sponsor Wilsonville Mercedes to Julia Fowler of Blue Moon Coffee, who donated 200 cups of coffee.
Candee Williams, president of the OHC board of directors, agreed.
Who could ask for anything more? she said.
