Oregon Car Shows, Swap Meets & Races – April 17 – 23

Hi,

We have had a rough couple of weeks. My wife and I have had maybe the worst colds of our lives. I guess we were lucky it wasn’t Covid but I’m not sure it would have been much worse. Fortunately, we are finally feeling better and hopefully back to normal by this weekend. They say when you get older it takes a while to get over things so now I know I am officially “older”.

I want to thank Tim Sallee and his son Calvin from West Salem for sharing some pictures of their cars and projects.

 




Thank you to all of you that sent in information on upcoming events! If you are aware of any 2023 event dates, especially Cruise-Ins and Cars and Coffee events, please email any information to me at tim@oregoncarculture.com or you can enter it here: “Add Events”.

There are a couple of big events this weekend that I wish I could attend. One is the big Corvallis Auto Swap Meet and the other is the Southern Oregon Rod & Custom Show in Roseburg. Hopefully next year I can make it up there. If you get to go, please email me a couple of pictures of your favorites. Kool April Nites in Redding, California begins this week but the main part of the show is next week.

We did make it to a cool little Car Show on Saturday in Rocklin, CA. It was kind of an Open House Car Show for a Hot Rod Shop called Justified Performance. Here are a few of the cars there plus the winner that will be entered in the Hot August Night Grand Finale Event.






I have talked the last few weeks about working with Hot August Nights on their new Hot August Nights Event Series. I think it is a fantastic deal for Car Show promoters to be part of a cool program and get a lot of extra publicity for their shows for only a $20 investment. Car Show participants can sign up and for $10 a year they can enter as many Event Series affiliated Car Shows as they want. The winner of each event is eligible to compete in a Grand Championship event in Reno in August. Please contact me if you have any questions and I can steer you in the right direction.
