A lot has been going on – from what I’ve now heard from a variety of sources – at the International Portland Auto Show. Daniel just went and salivated, but our neighbor Bill, actually did something there! He joined the very popular line so that he could ride through an obstacle course. It was a lot of fun obviously, but its main aim was to boast what the Jeep Wrangler Unlimiteds and Grand Cherokees could do. And it seems like it’s quite a lot. For sure Bill said these were the most popular items. But I think Daniel is still salivating over the Boxx he saw there, and like I told him, “there’s no harm in dreaming” (just so long as that’s as far as it goes).
They think that the show drew tens of thousands of people, perhaps even up to 100,000 as that is how many came last year and the figure is the same for most years I think. It’s in its 103rd year so it really is popular. It’s a good job the Oregon Convention Center at 32,000 sq. ft. is big enough to host all those people!
