C&G MACH 1C&G CAMAROC&G RR2

Classic Car Show (cruise-in style): show cars of all makes and models please arrive no earlier than 8:30 (to keep Route One from turning into a parking lot); Special Classic Mopar Collection featuring dozens of 1960s and 70s classic Plymouth and Dodge muscle cars and more on display in the showroom and service bays — since, by law, we can’t actually be doing business that day so we’re clearing the building and the lot to make room for this great event.

Live Music from 10 to 4 featuring the Jimmie Van Zant Band up from Tennessee playing Skynyrd and their own great music plus the WBLM house band and some local talent. See and hear his website here.

Admission is free. This is a benefit event for Biddeford-Saco area food pantries so please bring non-perishable food items or you can write a check to one of several groups at the event. There will also be a 50/50 raffle with our half going to these pantries.

There will be a variety of great food trucks on hand for lunch and snacks and drinks. No coolers please.

It’s rain or shine although we prefer shine. Bring a folding chair and maybe keep an umbrella in the car. Folding tents/canopies will only be allowed by the show cars

For non-show cars, there will be a passenger drop-off area on Spring Hill Road (off Route One next to the dealership) with parking up Spring Hill Road and shuttle vans running back and forth throughout the day.

For more information, you can visit the dealership’s website here or call Kal Rogers at 207-233-9970 with any event-related questions.

2013 Maine Car Show & Cruise-Ins Updated

Just a heads up that our comprehensive calendars listing 2013 Maine car shows and cruise-ins have been painstakingly updated for your automotive pleasure!

It might not seem like that big a deal but there are often a lot of discrepancies and confusions from year to year that have to be researched with a phone call or an email. We try to research as many resources as we can to get the most complete list we can compile for you. It actually takes several days to get it even close to right! It’s one stop car show shopping at

http://portlandmotorclub.com/drivers-resources/calendar-and-events/

We do take pride in making this as complete as we can but we do need your help. PLEASE send us an email to info@portlandmotorclub.com if you find any errors (and I’m sure there are some and if we knew what they were, we’d change ’em!) or additional info we can include, please let us know. We can only put some many details in a listing but it wouldn’t hurt to send more info if you have it.

Have a great driving season!

Heated Winter Car Storage – Sorry, Car Snuggie* not provided

We do want your car to be cozy while it hibernates away the cold and salty Maine winter months in our climate-controlled, heated, secure facility; but, no, we do not provide Car Snuggies. We get asked that question again and again; and we know that you want the best for your car but 60+ degrees of radiant-heated polished concrete gently warming your car’s underbelly is perfect for our vehicular winter guests. Since we do offer trickle charging, you could think of the battery as a lead-lined plastic encased Snuggie for its electrons, if you squint? Of course, you can provide your own Car Snuggie if you wish. We have nothing against Snuggies in general but we do not provide that service.

Now that we’ve cleared that up, you should know that we are still accepting cars for the winter 2012-2013 storage season. If you have not visited here before, please take the less-than-five minutes to see our video on our homepage so you can get a feel for the place. But realize that the video is targeted to the potential member.

You do NOT have to be a member here at Portland Motor Club to be able to store your car for the winter or any other time (we have military contractors and service men and women as well as world travelers storing their cars with us for sometimes years at a time!). Members have access to their cars to be able to take them in and out as they wish and to use our facility including our lounge and onsite detailing center Portland Detailing (www.PortlandDetailing.com) but if you want to put your car up for the winter, you can just pay for straight winter storage. We have plans for the number of months that you want to store the car. The monthly rate goes down with length of stay.

We expect that we will be pretty darned full this winter so you might want to contact us sooner than later. As you can see from the accompanying photo, we were very busy in a very quiet kind of way last winter! Please call Kal Rogers at Portland Motor Club at 207-775-1770 or email info@portlandmotorclub.com to make a reservation or to get more information.

Professional heated winter car storage at the Portland Motor Club in Maine… Sorry, no Car Snuggies!

* As I thought about what there really is to say about properly storing your car worth storing properly, it occurred to me that there isn’t really all that much to say. There are websites out there with a laundry list of things to do to prepare your car for the winter which could take you all winter to accomplish. We find that it’s really pretty straightforward here at Portland Motor Club: we store cars in a dry 60+ degrees with a trickle charger on them and they come out several to many months later none the worse for wear. So, what else is there to talk about but Car Snuggies (even though we don’t provide them)!?!… Kal

We at Portland Motor Club are taking the response to the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously.

We are following the Governor's decree by not being open to offer our regular storage services for the public.

We are certainly looking forward to making our car storage services available to you at the soonest possible time. We will also have new safety protocols in place for your assurance.

You are welcome to call or email anytime and we will get back to you at our earliest convenience. Our manager is monitoring correspondence on a daily basis.

Please stay safe and healthy during this challenging time. We look forward to serving you in the near future.
