Legends of the Road
A logo for the annual classic car show hosted by Ruttger’s Resort on Bay Lake, MN.
Ask today’s 30-year old and 70-year old their image of a “classic” car and you most likely will get two different pictures. So I went back to the host of the event and how automotive history may have made a mark in Ruttger’s story.
The name “Legends of the Road” in combination with Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge led my imagination to 1920’s, when the Bay Lake area was first forming, shaping the area into what we enjoy today. Family history surrounds the shores of Bay Lake, not far from the famed mines of the Iron Range, with dirt roads in any direction. I bet the first cars and trucks of these mine workers, builders and store owners each have stories to tell.
