Last week we drove to Roslyn WA where they filmed the '90s show Northern Exposure, then drove further up the road into areas with some Pacific Northwest fur and fishing history. Fun to think about how life used to be back then when it was much more wild and isolated. There's a nice, free (donations accepted) mining museum in Roslyn that gives a view of the past, worth spending some time there. Fun driving area and a great day trip for us locals.

DROVE 387 miles round trip to the Blue Lake Datsun Show near Portland Oregon. 8-11-2019.
Excellent Blue Lake Datsun Show as usual. Weather was cloudy and cool with no rain.
Total of 9 roadsters attended. Over 200 Datsuns total.
Lots of good Datsun friends, food, random prizes and awards.
Tom got first place low windshield in his recently acquired Blue 66 KA roadster.
Ted, first place high windshield.
Brad, second place high windshield.
Bruce, second place (early Z?).
Brad did get a special award for BEST SHOES. (not) 🙄👌👍
2 new, never seen before roadsters showed up, Including 67 2000 # 96. Quite amazing!!
Pics of #96 in a separate posting

Flat towed it to Monterey to watch John Wilkins race in Phil Mendelowitz's Bob Studdard EP Roadster.. An extremely popular 3rd place finish out of a TON of cars..

Drove Sora to Laguna Seca for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.

Good to see several roadster folks like Paul Gabriel, Mike Stubbs, Ron Carter, Tim Arnett and this young lad:

Phil and Mike Sweeney were racing:

Sora was a crowd pleaser!

My daughter's husband has a 60's era Nova that he drag races, and now she's on the look out for a car like the one showed there. She has always loved the Roadster.
