Mt Hood
Touring with Oregon's' Mount Hood as a backdrop - as featured on the 2006 Parade logo

Parade 2006 was a lot of fun. Portland is a nice place and the surrounding countryside is littered with “Porsche” roads. If you like to drive challenging roads with twisties, Oregon has some of the twistiest - if you prefer a more sedate scenic drive - OR comes complete with some of the best scenery. Portland International Raceway (PIR) was within 2 miles of the Headquarters Hotel for the track junkies, and was enjoyed to varying degrees by autocrossers and Drivers Ed participants. There were tours, rallies and concours (complete with an corral) to suit almost all tastes, plus numerous other activities all crammed within one single week.

  • Upping the ante in the highest mileage contest.

After hearing about Dennis W of CA's which has 127,000 miles last month, I heard from Ken M of CA who has 159,500 miles on his - which I think is remarkable. Then, I heard from Ed M of IL who said

“I have owned my guards red since new - so I'm sure the mileage is correct. I turned over 181,000 on Sunday, July 2, on the way home from the US Grand Prix at Indy”

Which makes Ed our new high mileage champion! If you can beat that with more miles on your .......... please e-mail me and let me know.
