Shelton is a small logging and lumber town in Washington. In the 1950s the population was about 5, 045. In 2017 Bob Mikkelsen told Kustomrama that Shelton was a good town; "It was good for cruising, but we normally went to Olympia, our state capitol, 20 miles away. It was burgers and shakes for most of the cruisers. There really wasn't a whole lot of cars but there was Dick Lord's 1953 Chevrolet hardtop, Art Nichlus' chopped and channeled 1932 Ford coupe, and then there was Daryl Mikelthun's 1955 Oldsmobile two-tone 88 hardtop, the car was a bute painted blue and white. Another interesting car was a 1938 Chev coupe with a full-blown GMC engine. It held the local enthusiasts' interest. There probably were more but I think I had left for college, in 1960, about that time."
