Welcome to PDX Car Culture


Salem Roadster Show Feb 16th & 17th




February brings us one of the premier indoor cars shows in the Pacific NW, with a unique format.
The Salem Roadster Show removes all of the politics and nepotism from this one of a kind car show, by being an invitation only show. Promoters Bob Symon and Greg Roach attend cars shows from Vancouver BC to Reno, NV and up and down the west coast, only inviting the Best of the Best to participate. There is no judging, there are no trophies. Instead each of their “one time only” participants receive a beautiful show jacket with the Salem Roadster Show logo, and Show Winner, embroidered on the back. A true collectors item, that allows you to show your pride in your vehicle, and the fact that it was “invited” to be in our show. Sounds a lot better than another dust collector trophy doesn’t it.
During set-up on Friday, Dave from Dave's Vintage Air starts the day off by supplying coffee and donuts for the early birds. Then for the lunch hour, one of their Presenting Sponsors Precision Auto Body & Paint provides a BBQ lunch, and in the evening Walery’s Pizza brings in pizza and pop for all of our exhibitors and vendors. On Saturday evening, there is a no host party for all participants, that let them get to know one another, and to wind down from the busy first day of the show.
Bob and Greg stringently review their vendors and sponsors, to ensure they fit into the spirit of the hobby, or have products and services that their attendees would need and/or enjoy.
Whether your an exhibitor, vendor, sponsor, or attendee, you will agree that the Salem Roadster Show is a fun and unique experience. No pressure, just the fun of participating and enjoy your time with others that love their vehicles and the hobby.
“Come see the Best of the Best”

Class Act Car Club is Just That

Two other "old school" hot rodders and myself recently rolled in at the Kickin' it Old School Car Show hosted by the Class Act Car Club.  We didn't know what to expect, and upon seeing only a vast variety of full and mid-size pickups, mostly low-riders, we felt a bit out of place.  Here we are with a 33 Ford, a 41 Willy's, and my 55 Chevy, and not another classic to be seen.
