Rose City Classics is a 1955-1956-1957 Chevrolet Club established in 1981
for the purpose of encouraging restoration and/or preservation of the '55-'57 Chevrolet automobile, truck and Corvette.
RCC welcomes all make/model of classic vehicles. The club meets on the third Thursday of the month except in the months of
January, September and December. Meetings are held at Mar's Meadows Chinese Restaurant (Delta Park), 9620 N. Whitaker
Rd, Portland OR. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m., but most members come early to have dinner and enjoy the companionship of
We host two major open-event cruise-ins each year.
Our primary event is designated
as our “Charity Cruise.” Each year members pick a different charity to benefit from this event. The Charity Cruise
is held in Woodland WA in June.
Our club has a rich history of community activism and since 1999 we have donated
more than $200,000 to local charitable organizations. These include the St. Mary's Home for Boys, Susan G. Komen Portland
Race for the Cure, Washington County Families for Independent Living, Oregon Diabetes Association, Oregon Burn Center at Legacy
Emanuel Hospital and Neighbors Helping Neighbors. In addition to helping these organizations we have also donated more than
$6,000 to assist club members and other organizations in our community.
Our second event is a cruise-in at The
Wooden Chicken in Portland OR and is held in July.
Other activities include a yearly banquet, a Fun Run to kick
off the cruising season, a club picnic and a Christmas party. We recently started, and we hope to continue, an informal monthly
cruise to a local eatery. This gives us a chance to get the cars out and just drive!
Yearly membership is $25
which includes The News, a monthly newsletter, to keep you up-to-date on current club and local events.
