The 2017 Portland Roadster Show is less than a month away (March 17-19th) and exhibitors, vendors, and car enthusiasts alike are gearing up for another awesome show. Said to be the best of its kind in the West, it has gained national stature as one of the premiere hot rodding events in North America.
Not only does the prize money equal that of Detroit and the Grand National Roadster Show, but it is also one of the four largest shows in all the United States. Because the Portland show is an International Show Car Association (ISCA) sanctioned event, top exhibitors from all over the nation show off their hot rods, classic cars, motorcycles, and trucks, in hopes to gaining some “additional points” to win the granddaddy trophy of them all, the Ridler Award.
If you have never been to the show in Portland, you have been missing out! Last year was the 60th Anniversary and it brought in legends such as Dave Kindig, Kev-Dog, Chip Foose, John D’Agostino, and Gene Winfield, making it one of the most memorable shows of all time. This year will be bringing back two of these guests, John D’Agostino and Dave Kindig, in which Dave will be showcasing two fresh builds from the latest season of Bitchin’ Rides. (in case you were wondering, the Black 69’ Camaro with red interior and special intake that was featured at SEMA, and the 55’ Nomad).
