This was my Memorial Day weekend event.
My "Shotgun Rider" (DW) didn't go so it was a solo mission to hang with the dudes and cars. A great time was had and got to do a little car showing, golfing, drinking in the parking lot with hundreds of car people and finally a little racing to close it out on Sunday.
Stayed at the Eagle Crest Resort. We had a room but I stayed in the camper in the parking lot to keep an eye on the cars. Plus I just like staying in my camper more than the rooms. The resort is pretty nice. There are 3 golf courses there and I played with my 10 YO nephew. He likes golf! And GTO's! They have swimming and other activities there as well.
On to the pictures.

The Super Duty Performance "GeeTO Tiger!"

A friend preparing his car for show. The Burgandy GTO. He won second place for 1966 GTO's.
[image]

My brother with his 1967 GTO.
Last year he won first place in his class.
Sadly, this year for some reason, he took third.
Could have something to do with other clubs having more members voting for their members. Nah, that would never happen.

A GTO camper option?

1967 Tempest Sprint with OHC 6 cylinder.

The OHC Engine.

My friend Dave's 1967 GTO Convertable. Dave won first place for stock 1967 convertable's.
[image]

The lady in the center owned this 1967 GTO. Nice reflection in the quarter panel. Wrong paint color for her year however. Cost her a couple points.

I liked this one.

An Overview.

Liked this hood art.

A very nice 1965 GTO.

One of my favorite cars of the show.
37K original miles.

The non GTO section.

The JUDGE's.

A friends 1964 GTO. He won first place in his class.
[image]

Some 1964 GTO's.
[image]

The serious race cars.
[image]

[image]

This is the last 1964 GTO built.
[image]

GTO's are getting harder to find and you take what you can get.
[image]

The Firebird Section.
[image]

Proof! I was indeed camped out in the parking lot. See TC in background.
[image]

Pit area at the track. It's only a 1/8 mile drag strip but you take what you can get.

The race cars tuning after the first run.
[image]

Getting Sticky.
[image]

It was a nice day of racing with Mt. Hood in the background.
[image]

Hung out at the TC for lunch and between races. Mt Bachler and the Sisters in the background from this angle. The awning was greatly appreciated. Made lunch for 10. Chile, hotdogs, watermelon, salad, beer, pop, coffee.

On the road home following my friend Dave.

Amazing how many windmills are being built. Honestly, I'm not sure I like how these things are changing the landscape. There thousands of them now. They look small in this picture but they are each about 300 to 400 feet tall and they each put out an industrial hum that can be heard a 1/4 mile away.
[image]

More windmills a couple miles up the road.
[image]

Here is a view of the John Day Dam from the bridge between Biggs and Maryhill. Maryhill State Park is near the bridge and is a nice park to stay. The Maryhill Museum and Stonehenge replica are just up the hill and well worth a look. If you stay at the Maryhill State Park, Take a trip up the the Goldendale Observatory State Park. It is one of the largest telescopes available for public viewing.
[image]

I decided to take a detour scenic route home through the Yakima River Canyon. There are a couple campgrounds down there and it is a nice drive. Lots of bugs though.
[image]

A final look at the Cascades from the Indian John Hill, rest stop view point.
[image]

That's the trip. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Next trip, golfing and fishing with a little river rafting. The mountains are still snow covered and I won't be able to get up into the high country till August if the conditions are anything like last year.

Great pictures of some great muscle cars. Always wanted a GTO just never made it happen. Presently playing with a 61 Impala bubble top and a 66 Tuxedo Park Mark IV Jeep. We spent Memorial Day with the inlaws and their 96 Vette at the Montana Vette Rally in Billings, but forgot the camera.

Got to love those Goats! Brings back fond memories. My brother had a '67 SS Camaro. Nice black car. Every time he drove it, he got a ticket.

Great pictures!

Great photos and great trip.

What I am waiting for are the "environmental terrorist wackos" to start claiming all the wind resistance the wind mills create are causing the earth's rotation to slow down and we are all going to fall off the planet....or some such crazy catastrophe (LOL)

That looks like a fun trip!

Just think, Oregon is 1/7th the way to replacing the output of Trojan Nuclear plant with wind turbines. I hope no one minds increasing the farms by 7X.
