Spent some time in Portland OR a few weeks ago visiting my sister and family; rolling along the freeway I saw this big sign that read "World of Speed". I was a little limited on time but they were only too happy to drop me off there for a couple hours the next day. Yep, brought my camera..... To get things going, this is Mickey Thompson's Challenger I. It was part of a group of Mickey's cars that were on loan as a temporary display. And the "Jado Special": There were a number of historic Pacific Northwest cars - I'm guessing most of you have seen these Dodge-bodied RP's around a time or two! Seem to recall that TRJ did a feature on the pair? And in this corner, the Ed McCulloch-driven "Northwind" top fueler! Another native Northwest racer - sign identified this as the Kalivoda-Hamlin hemi-powered '23-T. I'd seen pics of it before, recognized the car but had no background until I read the info. There was no info or signage on this one that I saw, but it sure looked familiar. Dug through my copy of "Portland Pictorial - The 1950's" by Albert Drake and I'm wondering if this isn't the original Wayne Mahaffey built '35 Phaeton that's pictured in that book? Sure looks like it.... maybe some of you Portland HAMB'ers can confirm. Beautiful car. There was lots to see, if you want to see more of it you can check out my gallery: https://www.terrysgarage.com/p664743114 Just so you know, as in the museum itself, there is O/T stuff in the photo gallery but it's all pretty cool. I dig pretty much anything internal combustion so it was easy to use up a couple hours just nosing around. Many of the displays are "rotated" or changed out on a regular basis; they were just putting the finishing touches on a display of Harley Davidson motorcycles that will be up for awhile. Totally worthwhile place to visit. I'll definitely stop back next time I'm in the Portland area, and I'll probably just let the relatives think I'm there to see them! Happy Thanksgiving!
