Volunteer Spotlight: Squier Smith


Meet Squier Smith

Q: What do you love about motorsports? 
A: Sports cars and sports car racing are foremost for me. I became involved in sports car racing at Laguna Seca in 1958. In Portland I was on the race committee for the Rose Cup from 1964 through 1968. I was the vice chair of the Rose Festival race committee from 1976 through 2015, including all the Champ Car years.

Q: If you could choose one car to have on display at World of Speed, what would it be?
A: 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750, body by Zagato, or any vintage early Alfa race car, or any Scarab race car, sports car or formula.

Q: What keeps you coming back to volunteer at World of Speed week after week? 
A: I keep coming back to the museum because I, like all my compatriots, am infected with cars in general. I am also very fortunate to volunteer with a group of people with whom I enjoy spending time with.

Q: What’s a fun fact about you?
A: At the advanced age of 73 I still participate on a volleyball team that competes for the National Championship each year.
