Hey all from Portland, Oregon.


Recommended Posts

I know some of the guys here, but not by this screen name.

I was born in the Northwest, but my folks raised in San Bernardino (Berdoo) SoCal,

and for some years I've been wanting to use this screen name, as it brings back such great memories.

 

E Street was one of the most popular cruise streets in all of SoCal in the 50's and 60's, along with

Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles and the Big Boy Hamburger Drive Inn.

 

In San Bernardino we cruised through the original McDonalds on E Street and was the main attraction for all

the hot rods and customs from all over SoCal to park there and show off - What great memories and so many more.

 

Been building model cars since I was 7, but also dabbled in military and sci-fi space ships for a while too.

 

Now I just play with my model cars and have a blast.

 

Great to be here and lurk under the radar checkin' out everybody's stuff.

Welcome Dave! That sounds like one fun time back then! Are you still out in San Berdue? Maybe we can meet at the Orangecon in October if you have the chance to swing over for that. Meanwhile, don't lurk, show us some of your work!

Hey Mark - Thanks for the welcome to the forum.

No, I'm not in Berdoo anymore, I'm up here "Huggin' Trees" in Portland, Oregon.

 

Thanks for the invite, but that would be quite a drive - LOL :smiley14:

Dave,

Welcome and I hope you at least checked out the OHMS Club!

 

Thank you Mark.

 

I've heard of the OHMS Club, but know nothing about it.

I searched the web but found nothing. Maybe you could give

me a web address. That would be much appreciated.

You have some nice Detroit iron there, Dave. In the 60's I dealt with the real thing myself cruisin' Griff's Hamburgers there in Dallas and hanging around with five other guys who felt the same way . Although I am an aircraft modeler I do love hot rods and muscle cars.

 

Welcome aboard,

 

Mark
