The roar of open headers and squealing tires echoed over Crescent City, starting with the Show and Shine that filled 3rd Street with hundreds of classic, vintage, antique and specialty cars for the annual 26th Sea Cruise spectacular. Police were busy Friday night, assisted by the Sheriffs Explorers, cordoning off downtown streets and lining up cars so that participants could take a cruise.
Walking around the show Saturday, one could overhear conversations that consisted mostly of numbers like 440, 454, 460, 727, 273, 283, and 302. Owners were on hand to explain what went into building , modifying and how much time to make their dream car a reality. Entertainment for the event was provided by Back in Time, a retro hits singing trio from the Coos County area.
Awards were announced by Del Norte County Supervisor Roger Gitlin and handed out by Northern Knights Car Club President Gary Bates. The 333 entries were divided into 50 categories, with some owners taking home multiple prizes. Bert Steele's 1968 SS Camaro took the Best in Show prize at this year's Sea Cruise.
Bill and Linda Seal came all the way from Covina, 751 miles to show their car, winning an award for the farthest distance traveled. The award for best paint went to Marilyn Miller of Grants Pass with her 1930 Ford Sedan Delivery. Great job everyone! Let's do it again next year.
