62nd Portland Roadster Show

Planning underway!

"The Tradition Continues"




2017 ISCA Portland Roadster Show Results 

The planning for the 62nd Portland Roadster Show is well underway!  It looks to be another great show, with some amazing cars and celebrities.

Dave Kindig and KevDogg from Kindig It Designs will be back again, and this year they will be bringing their new semi trailer with them.  Lots of cool swag, and four cool new builds.  One of the King of Kustom's John D' Agostino will be back, and hopefully a couple of other cool celebrities too.

 The Wagon Angels event for the Children's Cancer Association should be something to see.  Gary and the crew from Resurrected Rust Garage, are doing 6 special wagons and will be competing against one another for best build.  We also have wagons out at a number of local shops and high school and community college automotive programs.  Bring your checkbook for the Pedal Car Auction.  The Pedal cars are being customized into one of a kind treasures.  They will be auctioned off on Sunday, with the proceeds being split equally among the schools that are participating.

 And don't miss the Award's Ceremonies.  Saturday will see the PRS recognizing the participants in the popular High School Challenge, and Sunday will be the regular show awards.  Who will take home the $10,000 Grand Sweepstakes Award this year.  Last year the Renaissance Roadster of Buddy Jordan and built by Steve's Auto Restoration's took home the crown, after winning the prestigious Ridler Award in Detroit earlier in the year.


Once again I will be the Co-Producer of the show, along with being the Official Photographer of the show, and you can source all of your Exhibitor and Awards photos from us.  You have 3 options to choose from.

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.
