Classic cars meet vintage wines in Washington County
Main Street Forest Grove was transformed into a showcase of automotive excellence Saturday morning, July 16, as collectors and car buffs prepared to head out on the annual tour of Washington County wine country.
The moving road show offers a sneak peek at some of the 300 classic and modified automobiles that will be on display at Sunday's Forest Grove Concours d'Elegance.
John and Jo McLane made the drive from Portland on Saturday and were dazzled by a 1939 Packard 120 convertible coupe, owned by John Imlay of Beaverton.
"We were planning to come to the show tomorrow but realized we had a conflict with another event," said Jo McLane. "So, we got up early so that we could at least see some of these beautiful cars."
Imlay is a regular presenter at the show and will be back Sunday, though with a different car: his 1947 Packard Super Clipper.
The Forest Grove Concours d'Elegance opens at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, July 17. Trophy presentations begin at 1:30 p.m. with the Best in Show award at 4 p.m. The car show takes place on the Forest Grove campus of Pacific University.
Tickets: $8-$20. Free for children 12 and under
