Courteous reply to someone I also generally tend to admire on here but who maybe went a bit off this time. You can't legitimately find fault with someone who is as compassionate about you and saved a life, good on you my friend. I wish you and your little buddy a lifetime of fun and memories. Give him a pat on the… » 7/21/14 5:25pm 7/21/14 5:25pm

Create Your Own Motorcade with this Presidential Limo and Parade Car

Portland, OR— The Pacific Northwest is home to all manner of collector cars, with it's temperate winters and salt-free roads pairing nicely with monied collectors who might have secured their fortune in the tech biz or by designing running shoes.

We own a Dr. Auzoux model of a horse's leg made just like the twopieces by him pictured in the article. They are fantastically detailed, with waxed threads serving as veins, and the whole thing comes apart in interconnected layers to reveal each interior bit too, all the way down to the marrow in the bones. It looks… » 6/21/14 12:40pm 6/21/14 12:40pm

Not much to add aside from the fact that Jay certainly raised awareness for me about the Sultan's home country issues and, as someone who really enjoyed dining at the Beverly Hills Hotel regularly when I lived in LA and on each of my return visits, I can say that I not only stopped going there myself but a good number… » 6/10/14 12:40pm 6/10/14 12:40pm

People may think the Subaru Forester is the official car of Portland, OR but in reality it has to be the Mercedes of the 1960's-80's with plenty of W123s of course. We have the oldest MB dealership in the country as well as several long-time indie repair shops to keep all the cars bought over those decades running, my… » 5/14/14 12:05pm 5/14/14 12:05pm

Congrats man, soon you will be taking it to Cars and Coffee and some German themed car shows.

It takes practice but we want you to keep that… » 5/10/14 10:28pm 5/10/14 10:28pm

Freeman Motors here in Portland had one about a year ago in red. It was gone before I had the chance to go see it in person, which I desperately wanted to do. Only other crazy-ass "seen in the wild" car I've spotted was a Maserati MC-12 in Beverly Hills sporting Oregon plates. It was classic Maser blue & white racing… » 5/08/14 5:14pm 5/08/14 5:14pm

Million Mile 250SE Coupe is SoCal Owner's Daily Driver

When searching for our next collector car, most of us specifically seek out lower-mileage examples and those with too many zeros are often scratched off the list. Rarely, however, there are extremely high-mileage cars that, for the sheer fact of their durability, and perhaps even utter will to survive, entrance us… » 5/06/14 9:01pm 5/06/14 9:01pm
