Car show at The Oregon Garden draws auto enthusiasts

On Saturday, there was just enough color in The Oregon Garden's J. Frank Schmidt Jr. Pavilion to attract a crowd.

However, the focus wasn't the flowers, it was the Buicks, Chevys, Fords and other automobiles that colored the inside of building. Hundreds attended The Garden's First Invitational Car Show to admire and dream about cars of a bygone era.

Most of the 34 cars at the show were from local Silverton Flywheels car enthusiasts, but visitors from as far away as Portland and Vancouver, Wash. were on hand to see the waxed and shined restored coupes, trucks and roadsters.

For 12-year-old Jarrid Hughes of Newburg, the Orange '69 Camero was the best in the show."
