Well, the 37th annual Portland Classic model contest is in the books. This show is the longest show (to the best of my knowledge) ongoing in the U.S. today in conjunction with the 51st annual Portland Roadster show. The show is open for viewing and entry over the three day period.
This years show was no exception to the ongoing success and participation that the Pacific Northwest has to offer in the modeling hobby.
Three highlights for this years show. 320 models entered into the show with thousands of people filtering through the show room over the three day period.
Ron Martinolich, president of SABA (Scale Auto Builders Association), host club worked tirelessly along with Bob Paeth throughout the three days to put on a splendid show and Ron was even able to procure the services of Miss Oregon 2006, Donilee McGinnis, to be the honorary trophy girl (queen) and help to distribute the awards to all of the winners.
And lastly I must say that the ladies are taking over. We had four very competitive females participating in the adult categories (no ladies class) and 3 out of the 4 were able to walk away with first place awards and one of these fine females walked away with the best engine award; justly so.
A good time was had by all. We had a very good turnout of Junior participants for a change and a ton of goodies were given away with the awards.
I have included some teaser pics. but for the whole show please go to the link provided.
