Dewey Cheatum & Howe

Published June 10, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

This hot rod at last weekend’s Waterfront Festival caught my eye … and I got a chuckle out of the lettering on the side: “Dewey Cheatum & Howe.” Oh, and then there was Woody Woodpecker. This is a Plymouth Coupe owned by Michael Mahoney of Oak Harbor. No, she didn’t look quite like this driving off the showroom floor in 1938.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
