Medford Cruise Surprise

By Rob Scott

MEDFORD, Ore. — There’s a story behind every car at the Medford Cruise. The story behind Ray Porter’s new 1969 Ford Mustang has been years in the making.

While living in Ashland and performing for the Shakespeare Festival, Ray met Scott and Louis Robinson after one of his performances. They started talking about Mustangs and haven’t stopped since.

Scott and Louis decided to make Ray’s dream of owning a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 a reality. Countless hours from volunteers from around the world went into restoring the classic car.

On June 16th in Medford, Scott, Louis and a handful of volunteers surprised Ray by handing him the keys of his dream car.
