Comanche County Car Club cruises to Cross Plains, Texas

The Comanche County Car Club hosted a Car Cruise on Saturday, January 16 to Woody’s Classic Car and Baseball Museum followed by lunch at Jean’s Feed Barn in Cross Plains. Eighteen members and guests drove from their home meeting place, Cook’s Fish Barn, on Saturday morning and travelled to Cross Plains.

Of note in the caravan were Garry Davis’ 1961 red and white Chevy Impala, Roger Martin’s 1940’s orange and white Chevrolet wrecker and Mike and Kay Carey’s flaming 2004 Chevrolet SSR.

Woody’s Museum features Classic Cars from the early 1900s, the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s with some up to 2014. There is also baseball memorabilia from as early as Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth to present day, along with an impressive Texas Ranger baseball collection. Woody’s is 22,000 square foot of great American classic cars and timeless baseball moments.

The car club folks topped off their visit with a trip to the gift shop which is filled with new, faith based books that are free to visitors and the proceeds from all purchases at the gift shop go to local and Texas non-profits.

There are numerous murals inside and outside Woody’s Museum that depict life in Central Texas from past to present in Texas. Mindful touches can be seen all over the museum such as complimentary walkers and wheelchairs for those that need assistance, purse hooks in the bathrooms for the ladies and an elevator to the second story. Be SURE and visit Marilyn and Elvis in the diner and go to the restrooms while you are there.

Also, at the last meeting of the Comanche County Car Club on Tuesday, January 12 at Cook’s Fish Barn, the Comanche County Car Club elected Eddy Parker as president for the 2021 year. Mike Carey was elected vice president, Garry Davis was elected treasurer and Kay Zimmerman Carey was elected secretary.
