Northwest Vintage Car and Motorcycle Musuem 6th Annual High School Show and Shine

The show put on by the Northwest Vintage Car and Motorcycle Museum took place May 30, 2009 at the Western Antique Powerland in Brooks, Oregon just off I-5, 8 miles north of Salem, Oregon

This car was build from the ground up by high school students from Roberts High School in Salem, Oregon. Mentors from Northwest Vintage Car and Motorcycle Museum work with students to rebuild a fully functional 1920’s Model T-Speedster car.

Besides the High School Student cars, there were also many other great classics that attended this well organised show.

The following is a sample of the many classic, muscle and antique cars, trucks, a few motorcycles and one sweet little teardrop trailer that were shown.

I love the lines on this ...

amazing engine ....769 HP

this Dodge has 600+ HP
(you can always click on the photos to enlarge them)

This is such great tail light, wonder if that's where Adidas got the idea for three stripes?
It's from the Buick Skylark.

This sweet pink 1958 Mercury happens to be for sale....
I have the contact information, if you are interested.

I just love the pink umbrella used to hold the hood open....
being an English car, I should probably call it a bonnet with the trunk being the boot.

If I heard right, this Glasspar did win an award or two.

gotta' love the nod to the movie Death Proof ...

Is this a hood ornament anyone could ignore???

This Ol' Skool Bus has some great ghost flames and I think it won best of show in the Collector's contest.

An Army Harley Davidson from way back, not exactly built for comfort.

Here is our 57 Mercury riding real low next to the raised red pick up.

This cut-away engine is in the museum and is a great teaching aid.

I do love gages of any kind and this tester was part of the display in the service station museum.

I need to figure out how to fix the spacing on all this, which is making me crazy.

I'll try and get more photos at the next show, which if everything goes as planned will be the Annual All Ford Show and Swap Meet on Saturday, June 6 hosted by the Mustang Wranglers of Oregon in Hillsboro at the Washington County Fair Complex.

See you there!
