Keith’s Blog: The Kirkland Concours, Held at America’s Car Museum, Comes of Age

I’m in one of the conference rooms at LeMay — America’s Car Museum, waiting for a meeting of the marketing committee of the Board of Trustees, of which I am a member.

I’ve been involved with the museum in a variety of ways since its first public meetings over a decade ago. It has been immensely satisfying to watch the LeMay team, led by David Read More

Alex’s Blog: The Little Alfa That Could

If you ever wanted to teach your daughter how to work on engines, just send her on a 1,000-mile road trip in an old car.

Last Sunday I left Portland with my two good friends, Carly Mackie and Carolyn Corl. We cruised down Highway 101 in the Sports Car Market ‘67 Alfa Romeo Giulia Super for a two-day road trip, with the California Redwoods as our final destination. We made it to the Redwoods and back, even though the Alfa Read More

Alex’s Blog: Toto, We’re Not in Oregon Any More

Espresso bars, cigarettes and the telephone greeting “Pronto!” surrounded me. It was official: I had just stepped off the plane into Italy with the promise of driving restored classic Ferraris on the horizon. It was the quickest 48 hours of my life.

A week ago my father, publisher Keith Martin, and I received an invitation to a press conference for a vintage car restorer called Modena Classic Works. It was to be held in the Museo Casa Enzo Read More
