This is very short notice, but PDXMike emailed me this weekend letting me know about “The Shape of Speed” exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. This is an absolute must-see for me, as it covers the beginning of the aerodynamic era with the very finest examples of cars and motorcycles, including a Tatra 77A, which I have never seen in the flesh.
And then he also informed me that it’s The Portland Vintage Racing Festival, at Portland International Raceway, with the finals on Sunday. So I’m coming up for the weekend, in my van, even if it’s not fully finished. We’ll find a place to socialize on Saturday night. So if you’re in the area or can make it out, see you in Portland!
Mike and I are still fleshing out the particulars, but we’ll do the museum on Saturday, maybe about 1 or 2 PM, and then meet at our yet-to-be designated evening locale, and then do the vintage races on Sunday. I’ll post the updated details here when we have them.
I’m sorry about the short notice, but I’ve been very focused on my van and some other projects. I don’t see myself coming to the Midwest this year, but maybe next year. Or somewhere else.
And if any of you decide to come out for this weekend, and want to include Eugene for some car-spotting, I’d be happy to show you around, either before or after this weekend.
