Life Scout and former World of Speed Learning Center student Nick Oubre is working on his Eagle Scout service product, and you can help!
While the state-of-the-art Learning Center has a large selection of tools for our students to use, there are always places we can use more. For the next three Saturdays in January — Jan. 13, 20, and 27 — Nick will be at World of Speed during Portland Cars and Coffee from 8 to 10 a.m. collecting donations of new or gently used tools and to discuss his project and World of Speed’s education programs.
We’re super proud of Nick for his hard work towards becoming an Eagle Scout, and grateful for his help! You can find a list of the tools and equipment Nick is looking for below:
- Air impact wrench ½-inch drive, at least 1,200 feet-pounds reverse torque
- Allen head screwdriver set (standard and metric)
- Torx head screwdriver set
- Oil filter removal tools
- ¼-inch drive socket sets, two each (standard and metric)
- Bolt bins
- Metal shelving, roughly 6 feet high, 18 inches deep, and 3–4 feet wide
Meet Vicki Shepherd, whose love of motorsports started with four-wheeling.
The holidays are here! We’ve already had a ton of festive fun here at the museum, from our holiday celebration to the Gingerbread Garage Workshop. The season isn’t over, and as we keep an eye out for snow, there’s plenty of excitement to be had at World of Speed! Plus, if you need a perfect holiday present for the racing fan or car lover in your life, we have fantastic gift options in the Museum Store!
Meet Tom Styczynski, who attended his first real sports car race at Meadowdale Raceway in 1964.
The end of Daylight Savings Time means that the sun is setting sooner, which can throw all of us off. (Who likes getting out of work to see nighttime?) With many great events at World of Speed this month, you’ll have plenty of exciting events to help beat those sunset blues! November is a month for giving thanks, and we’re thankful, too — for all of you in the World of Speed community.
