The 54th Annual Portland Roadster Show

The 2010 Portland Roadster Show attracted thousands of visitors and did not disappoint! With over 100 entries never before viewed by the public until this weekend, there was quite the vast array of over 300 Customs, Street Rods, Roadsters, Bikes, Trucks, you name it. Whether you came to drool over the beautiful vehicles including the world famous "Roswell Rod", get an autograph from legendary Chip Foose, or meet American Graffiti star Candy Clark in person, there was fun to be had all around at the Oregon Convention Center!

Buffalo Restoration was present with owners Steve and Irene Warren's beautifully restored pickup truck on display! Hagerty insured of course. Visit their website to view the amazing work the shop does: http://www.autorestorations.com/Buffalo.html

Another happy Hagerty customer, Dave Stickland (shown above) took home 3rd place in Mild Sport for his gorgeous '64 Corvette Sting Ray!

The lovely Candy Clark to the right of me!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the one and only...Roswell Rod!

As busy as they kept Chip Foose all weekend, he was nice enough to pause at my booth for a quick picture on his lunch break. Thanks Chip!
