The 38th Annual Rogue Valley Street Rod and Custom Car Show

This Sunday Dave and I attended the 38th Annual Rogue Valley Street Rod and Custom Car Show.  This was our first time attending a car show in southern Oregon since moving to Medford this last September.  The cars were beautiful and obviously loved by their owners.  Most were modern customs with a few classics thrown into the mix.  It took place inside a building located at the Jackson County Fairgrounds.

This custom 1936 Auburn Boattail Speedster was by far Dave's favorite from the show.  Many actors from the 1930's owned this car including Marlene Dietrich, Mary Astor, Clark Gable and Errol Flynn just to name a few.

I loved the lighting affect on this one.

I dressed down as it is still cold here in Southern Oregon.....well at least to the sunny California weather we are used to.  I wore my new to me 1940's Mexican tourist jacket (which I recently purchased on eBay for a steal of a price) paired up with a vintage tooled leather purse I recently thrifted for a whole $3.

This Packard was Dave's other favorite. It's definitely a dream of his to own and restore one of his own someday.

Dave gets sentimental when ever he sees a car like one he has owned in the past, like this Chevy. It's pretty darn cute.

As always, I love to capture the beautiful details as I spot them.

This 1962 VW bus was beautifully displayed with a matching ride for the kiddies as well as a remote control version of the same bus all matching in color and detail.

Cute right?

The owner was nice enough to let my niece jump in the kiddie ride.  I think she would have had more fun it if was actually moving.

Here I am in front of a 1964 Mustang that is very similar to one that I used to ride along in with my friend Michelle, when we were in high school, who was lucky enough to own one.  Sadly she sold it a few years after we graduated.

Here is a better photo of it with no bystanders.

We came across a Thunderbird parked outside of the display building.  This is the same year, make and model of a Thunderbird miniature car which was found at my grandfather's house and was gifted to Dave from my Mom a few years back.

We also stumbled across this car and trailer set before leaving.  It's definitely a dream of mine to own a set similar to this one day.  Sorry for the poor lighting.

All in all we had a great time and we are looking forward to attending several more car shows this coming Spring and Summer in Southern Oregon. We have at least six to look forward to and are discussing attending the some car shows in Reno and Sacramento as well. 

Till' Next Time,



  1. That looks like a great show! The Reno Rockabilly Riot is at the end of June this year. My husband and I usually attend it for one day. Let me know if you guys decide to come up. I'd love to meet up with you.

    1. Dave and I have definitely discussed going to The Reno Rockabilly Riot. I will definitely let you know if we end up going and yes we will need to meet up!!
