June 15th, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho: Car d'Lane's Friday night cruise has something for everyone
June 16th: Our Cougars at Saturday's show.
Left: June 22nd: Car guys are awesome! En route to the Peach City Beach Cruise in Penticton Fordnutz member Dean Henschke broke down but it wasn't long before members of the Shelby club pulled over to lend a hand and get him back in action.
June 24th: We piggy-backed with the Thunderbird clubs to visit the Forbes' collection in Sooke, BC. On the property there were many buildings housing a fantastic collection of cars and memorabilia but outside on the street there were so many classic cars it was like a car show in itself.
July 1st, Kim's Kruise: We had a great collection of Cougars and other classics for the cruise to Henry Miller's place in Chilliwack. Following the cruise there was a BBQ and club meeting back at the Friesens' home in Abbotsford.
L-R: Dean Henschke, Myron & Tuula Pajak, Jim Ferguson, Alan & Sheri Haaland and MaryAnn Hessels sit among Kim's family of Cougars.
Claw In morphed once again in 2012 to a "show within a show", joining forces with the Galaxie Club at Dam's Ford Lincoln in Surrey on July 14th. This kept our members happy as there was no work involved and it made the Galaxie Club happy as they had 17 Fordnutz swell their ranks. Not only did we qualify for Galaxie awards, but Fordnutz had their own which were given out at the club BBQ at Scott and Heather's home in Delta after the show.
12 Cougars were at Claw In held in conjunction with the Galaxie Club show in Surrey.

August 3rd: As part of West Coast Classic Cougar's open house in Salem Oregon, thirteen Cougars from Oregon, Washington, BC and Alberta cruised through the Oregon countryside. As we slowly passed through this local gas station we totally transfixed customers.
