Keith’s Blog: SCM 30th Anniversary Tour Cars at “The Shape of Speed”

The 45 cars — and their driving teams — on SCM’s 30th Anniversary Tour are now roaming 1,000 miles of scenic Oregon backroads.

I’m along for the ride, and life is great.

The Tour started on Sunday afternoon, when the drivers brought their cars to a public display outside of the Portland Art Museum. The display was part of the museum’s “The Shape of Speed: Streamlined Automobiles and Motorcycles: 1930-1942” exhibit. The exhibit will continue through September 15. The Portland Art Museum is the presenting sponsor of the SCM 30th Anniversary Tour.

More than 5,000 people came by the museum to see the 30th Anniversary Tour cars. Here are a few photos from the day. To see more of the tour during this week, follow #SCM30 on Instagram and Facebook.

Now, I’ve got some driving to do with some of my best friends in the world.

  1. I serendipitously stumbled upon your tour at Sunriver OR where the cars parked overnight right outside my resort apartment. What a joy to see such impressive beauty together. I thank my lucky star for discovering this.
