Welcome to PDX Car Culture


Our annual "Favorite Pics" Galleries are here!



*Photos from the Favorites of 2017

Each year to bridge the gap between the Fall & Winter months and the start of the next car show season, I go through all the pictures from that year and compile galleries of my favorite pictures of a variety of subjects.  Generally they are my favorite truck, rat/traditional rod, trucks, muscle cars, street rod/hot rod, graphics, and people pictures compiled into galleries of the same name.


It was a great car show season in 2018, and I'm already getting 2019 events to add to the Events calendar.  If you know when your event will be, even if you don't yet have a flyer, send it to us so that it can at least create a place holder.  Secondarily, before you schedule your event, take a look at what other events you may have to compete with on that date.  This year several weekends were just silly.  15-17 events on Saturday, and maybe one or two on that Sunday.  Or other weekends where there was not much going on!  I want all of your events to be successful, and I imagine your charities do as well.  Unless you are a well established long time event, you may need to exercise some flexibility.  And always remember, we can't share and promote an event we don't know about.  You can upload the information right here on the website, or email to pdxcarculture@gmail.com. 

Thanks for a great 2018!

Class Act Car Club is Just That
Author :: Administrator Account
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.
