February 2022

Happy New Year 2023!  A new beginning with a new club board and adventure. As the new president, we will work to continue our growth…

Our board is here to serve the new and current members. We will be adding exciting drives to create comradery among members. We will also get our members more involved on leading drives. Plus, we are working hard to have a charity car show that we have missed, a couple of years now, due to Covid.

Central Chapter cars and coffee will be held in different locations to accommodate and meet other members from Corvallis and Albany.  And, we will schedule a couple of Tech sessions to learn more about our cars and newer technologies.

Let’s make 2023, a good and an unforgettable year.  As Porsche says, “There is No Substitute.“

Drive! Thompson’s Mills @ Thompson's Mills State Heritage Site
Jul 16 all-day

Join us at 10 AM at the new Winco Foods (formerly Shopko) on Chad Drive in Eugene for a short, but entertaining Drive! to Thompson’s Mills on the beautiful Calapooia river in Shedd, Oregon. Thompson’s Mills is a unique survivor of times past; the last water-powered mill in the state that still runs the milling machines for demonstrations today. Bring a picnic (we’re scouting locations to pick up lunch near the mill), take a tour, and just chill in this great spot. Don’t forget your State Parks pass, if you have one!

Drive! Tyee Road (Central Chapter) @ Henry Estate Winery
Aug 13 @ 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Join us on Saturday, August 13 for one of our prettiest twisty drives! If you haven’t driven Tyee Road before, it twists along the banks of the Umpqua river, from just south of Elkton to the little town of Umpqua, just east of Sutherlin. We’ll picnic (and taste wine, if you’d like) at Henry Estate Winery. For those who don’t want to pack a picnic, we’ll make a stop at the Lighthouse Center Bakery in Umpqua to pick up food. It’s a fantastic drive that is completely paved, even the short bit to the winery.

We meet at 9 AM at Lowe’s on West 11th in Eugene. Hope to see you there!

Drive! Steamboat Inn! (Central Chapter)
Sep 24 @ 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Join us for one of the more unique drives on the calendar. Meet at the Edgewood Center at E 40th Ave & Donald St in Eugene at 9 AM. After a brief drivers’ meeting, we’ll roll at 9:30. After a quick pit stop at Dorena Lake (which is a little gem all on its own), we’ll enjoy a low-speed autocross-like route through the forest, ending with lunch at the Steamboat Inn on the banks of the Umpqua River. RSVPs are essential so the Inn can accomodate us. Send email to
