Sept 1 at PIR. Anyone else from the forum going this year? Perhaps the biggest British show on the west coast and the opportunity to meet Curtis and see the great build on his GT!

I'm not able to make it this year, if you go make sure to take pictures. We haven't seen Curtis in a long time so make sure you get some pics with him. Thanks Jim

800 + vehicles at the PIR race track is probably the biggest British show we have attended. Curtis lives a measly 10 minutes away from the track and knows where all the good pub's are in the area.

May not make it this year Jim... right in the middle of trading my F-350 dually in for a F-450 dually. Say hi to Curtis for us. Have fun judging 800+ vehicles 😉;-)

It'll be great to see you again, Jim!

Who else is coming?

The Portland ABFM is indeed an exceptional event! Vintage racing - and a paddock full of vintage British race cars adds some special interest other meets can't match. Portland also has a lot of really esoteric cars around - you never know what you'll find in the far corners of that huge show field!

I thought I was gonna miss it this year, but my schedule cleared up. I didn't pre-register but I plan to arrive early Saturday and hang out all that day. Lisa will be visiting family in Michigan over the weekend, so we'll miss her.

My car will look exactly the same has it has for two years, I've actually been driving it a lot, but I never find time for modifications.

Our weather forecast is "hot and sunny" right through the weekend (98 to 100F for the highs) so plan for that.

...and the Rover V8 has been given the nod (make that demand) by SWMBO. Has working A/C even tho not really show material. Had prepped the MGB GT and registered it and then came the triple digit heat forecast up and back...1200+ miles of that and I changed my mind!
