I spent Saturday sauntering around the 43rd Annual All British Field Meet at Portland International Raceway.
More than 800 British cars were on display.
My ride out represented a mix of old and new. SCMer Dave Stewart picked me up in his lovely dark blue MGA Twin Cam, but he was wearing a Tesla jacket. His daily driver is a Tesla Model S.

Mecum Auctions is returning to the City of Roses for the second year in a row — and they’re bringing some special Shelby and muscle cars.
This year’s auction is on June 16-17 at the Portland Expo Center, just a short drive from SCM World Headquarters.
Last year Mecum sold 297 of 478 cars (62%), totaling $9,316,726.
A 1965 Shelby GT350 sold for $335,500 for the high sale. Mecum will no doubt look to improve those numbers this time around.

Although I am reveling in my momentary motoring splendor, such moments are few Read More

Best of Show Concours de Sport went to Brian and Kim Ross’ 1957 Ferrari 335S. It had been driven in period by racing legends, including Stirling Moss and Phill Read More
