Welcome to PDX Car Culture

59th Portland Roadster Show

Just around the corner!


Beginning in 1956, this show heralded the arrival of the hot rodding season both locally and regionally, with the best show of its kind in the West. Over the years it has gained national stature as one of the premiere hot rodding events in the United States. This year they celebrate their 59th anniversary.

For 58 years, the Portland Roadster Show has presented the artistic efforts of skilled craftsman, and the hobbyist alike.  Displaying virtual "automotive art" crafted from the vision and passion of the automobile.

All of the outstanding cars, trucks, and motocycles in our show, are painstakingly selected from hundreds of applications each year, to provide the best show possible.

Combined with displays from the finest builders and suppliers; along with vintage automobilia, model car expositions, and the creative efforts of our youth, in our "High School Challenge", the Portland Roadster Show continues to maintain its reputation as one of the biggest and best shows in the country.

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.

Unfortunately I was unable to help the inquirer but at the time I learned that a truck that originally appeared in the 1970 show was going to appear in the 2012 show.
