A regular “bonus” associated with community events in Anacortes is the participation by owners of classic cars. Such was the case on the 4th of July, when a number of proud car buffs including at least three local couples opted to take part in the parade down Commercial Avenue. Among those behind the wheel in American classics were parade veteran Loren Knutsen and his wife, Norma in their 1935 Chevrolet Business Coupe. Somewhere in my files I have photos of Loren driving Curt Johnson’s 1928 Buick convertible at a Holland Happening parade in Oak Harbor during the early 80s. Another husband/wife team in the 2003 parade was Anacortes High School teacher Joe Furin and his wife Desha, driving her family’s 1919 Model T. Yet another husband/wife team was Dr. Harold and Martha Clure, driving a restored Hudson (about 1951).
