The small cars of the Portland Historics
The Portland Historic Races, held each July at Portland International Raceway, showcases a plethora of vintage race cars. From big American muscle (such as the Mercury Monterrey that was racing) to pint-sized speed demons including Fiats, MGs, SAABs, and more.
Since this is Subcompact Culture, here are some photos of the smaller cars from the event, both of the racing and street varieties. I will have to say, my favorite car of the event was the above #15 Fiat 500 Abarth. No, it wasn't the fastest, but it was awesome. The white vintage SAAB in the photos below was a close second, though.
