August Members 2013

About a dozen OMS members assembled in the Steakburger parking lot for the August Mt. St. Helen’s Tour.  Amongst the familiar automobiles there was a new face, Tammie from Tigard and her family.  Tammie purchased her 1961 Mk 1 Australian Morris Mini, which she affectionately calls “Mate”, about 6 years ago with the help of her brother who belongs to SAMOA in the Seattle area. Tammie and her brother set to work.  Stripping off 3 coats of paint to find the bare metal, the car began its restoration process.  The final product: Mate now sports a “Transit Blue” (as in the color of Tacoma Transit buses) body color with big bold black bonnet strips and an upgraded 1275 engine to make him run like a champ! Welcome Tammie and...

Urgent Request…

We have been fortunate to have several owners commit cars for our Feature Display at this year’s ABFM. But, we still very much need cars to represent these models: Austin America/MG 1100 or 1300, or other ADO16 models Wolseley Mini set up for rally competition Neo MINI, first generation A car for this display need not be in concours condition, but nicely presentable. This means a sound, undamaged body, good paint, neat interior. Unless you want to show off your engine compartment and/or boot, these do not need to be show. The car should be near enough in outward appearance to stock to represent the model as it was originally sold. If you have a car to fit the bill, please contact Paul Rollins:...

August 18th OMS Mt. St. Helens Tour

This 200 mile round trip drive to Mount St. Helens is like a trip to the moon, thanks to the 1980 eruption of the volcano. The effects of it’s destruction (33 years and 3 months ago) will increase in scale as we ascend alongside the Toutle River Valley. We will depart promptly at 10AM from the parking lot of Steakburger (7120 NE Hwy 99, Vancouver, WA 98665) Prepare to arrive in Vancouver with a full tank of gas! Our First Visit will be at the Forest Learning Center (FREE Admission) After we experience the eruption chamber we will depart to Johnston Ridge Observatory (Cost $8/adult- It’s worth it!) where we will enjoy award-winning films, listen to ranger talks, observe the landscape, purchase souvenirs, set off on a hike, or get a light lunch from the food cart. With leisurely stops at the visitor centers, the drive could take five-six hours round trip. RSVP with Eric Newland...
