The SCM 1000 began in 2018 as a celebration of Sports Car Market magazine’s 30th anniversary. After all – what better way to celebrate than with 80 fellow gear heads, in 50+ year old cars, bombing down 1000 miles of winding, two-lane roads.
It was so much fun, we decided to make it an annual affair.
The SCM 1000 is designed with an emphasis on the roads. Participants are encouraged to take their time, enjoy the scenery, stop for pictures and really enjoy the journey.
All marques are invited to apply, but each year has a featured marque and preference is given to that marque. The tour is open to cars built in 1974 and earlier, or continuation by application.
A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Portland Art Museum.
