    Oregon/Washington Studebaker events?

    I'm planning a trip thru Oregon/Washington the last two weeks of June/ first week of July.....can you recommend any events, etc. that might be of interest to a Studebaker/Packard/AMC nut?

    Lou, are you also coming up for the International Meet?

    Some Stude. places to go/see may or may not be available BEFORE the Meet is why I asked.

    Are you planning to go farther North than Seattle/Tacoma?
    I am sure you know there is a LOT more up here North and Northeast of there, SeaTac is barely over the South Border.

    Yes, plan on returning for the event in Tacoma....don't know much about the area (except for basic training at Fort Lewis.....rained so much I thought I was in the Navy).

    The All Studebaker picnic at The Mud Mountain Dam Park outside of Enumclaw, Washington is on July 14th. Always a good turnout and always good food! I haven’t missed it in several years, and will be there again this year. Give it a try!

    Just along I-5 in Wilsonville, Oregon is the World of Speed Museum. I believe they still have Dave Bloomberg's (Avanti Kid) Bonneville Avanti on display. This car went 216 mph at Bonneville. Great car. Worth stopping for a look.

    If you are in Oregon on June 16, the North West SDC is having their Orphan Car Show in Oregon City. Check their website for details. There's also a list of MW shows at http://www.northwestclassicautomall.com/CruiseNews.html
    The Brooks Or show usually has a decent showing of Studebakers and there are several museums on site well worth seeing.

    Lou here's a good link to general car events:http://www.cruzinmag.com/calendar.html

    It won't be as specific as you might want, but I use it. I have friends who are AMC/Studebaker folks, but don't want to publish their names without permission. I have been told that the AMC club is inactive. The Classics are a big part of what we do up here, which includes Packard, but post war ownership is less well defined.

    If you were here for basic training you would have been guaranteed rain in the months of Nov-Jan. That's when we get half of out 37" rainfall total. In July- early Sept. the area is as dry as Stockton, but not nearly as beastly hot.
