Saturday May 09 2009 comments Classic Crowd, Cruise Nite. By: Auburn Journal photography by Ben Furtado -A +A Crowds fill Lincoln Way in Downtown Auburn during the 25th Cruise Nite Friday evening. Owning 1 of 30 ever made Joe Simas of Colfax, pulls heads when people see him cruising from the right side of his 1937 Australian Ford Ute. Joe found the rare classic in Australia through Ebay and won the bid at $20,000. Joe Simas added his own custom work to the car through paint, suspension, stereo and wiring."This car is a blast to drive and is quite comfortable from the right side," said Simas. "It's not really a show car so I'm not afraid to use it." This slammed-to-the-ground '37 Chevy Woodie looks even better than it did 72 years ago. The 1937 Woodie owned by Richard Harris from San Jose, rolls in style with maple wood siding on suicide doors and a chopped rag-top. It was love at first sight for Murrill Conley of Lincoln, when he bought his first 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday Coupe. "When I bought my first one I fell in love with it right away," said Murrill. "Unfortunately I had to sell it, but in 1992 I saw one and kept asking the owner to sell it to me. Finally in 1993 he did, and I've had it ever since." After finally getting his wish, Murrill Conley cherishes his ride putting only 1,000 miles on it each year. He has won 110 awards with the Olds and recently had it appraised at over $62,000. Cruise Nite brings hundreds to browse the streets of Lincoln Way checking out the classics.
