Cruisin' Sherwood, a nearby Oregon town which hosts a whole lotta vintage vehicles once a year

On June 11, I rode the #12 bus for well over an hour from my apartment to Sherwood, determined to experience a car show I'd been hearing about probably since 2007. I made it, even with having to wait for another 20-30 minutes for a shuttle bus to take me to Old Town Sherwood where reportedly 550 vehicles awaited. What a good time I had, walking the streets with thousands of other car lovers! Now, I realize that loads of car lovers are men of all ages and that men understand and appreciate what engines look like because they can visualize the result of stepping on the accelerator with such and such an engine under the hood. While I adore the sound made by such and such engines, I would much rather see the car as it was designed to be appreciated, hood down and ready to roll. So, I decided to forego photographing some of the beauties with hoods up, although I couldn't pass up all of them. Anyway, here goes--the first photos. I hope you find them as exciting and pleasing as I do.
