From The Staff
Spring is in the air in a very gearhead sort of way, that is to say, sounds and smells that announce the arrival of the rod run, drag race, car show season is upon us. We're talking the "start up" of our winter dormant soul like no other.
After warming up with the Corvette and Early Bird swap meets, we set up our booth at the 61st Portland Roadster Show, a magnificent display of the finest cars in the country - no, make that "world". Truly the leading edge of great shows, Duane Caseday, Dave Jothen, Mike Itel and a host of Multnomah Hot Rod Council volunteers know what it takes to sustain an exceptional level of excellence year in and year out - they've got the formula!
A Portland "side trip" took us to the World of Speed Motorsports Museum in Wilsonville, Oregon.At the invitation of curator Ron Huegli CruZin' staffers Bob Roseberry and George Belarde, along with yours truly, were treated to a walk through an impressive motorsports museum, an excellent meal, and, the presentation of the 2017 Inaugural Class of Inductees, recognized as follows - Rolla Volstedt, Open Wheel; Hershel Mc- Griff, Stock Car; Monte Shelton, Sports Car/GT; Jack Coonrod, Drag Race; Bob Lanphere (deceased), Motorcycle and Dale LaFollette, Person at Large.
Special thanks to curator Ron Huegli and coordinator Jenica Villamoor for the invitation and the gracious hospitality.
