Welcome to the NWVCMM

The Northwest Vintage Car & Motorcycle Museum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of people who are interested in vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles. We are dedicated to providing a public facility for the preservation and display of automobiles and motorcycles from the past. The NWVCMM is an entirely membership-owned, all-volunteer organization open to people of all ages, with or without a vehicle.

The Museum is closed until further notice

Meetings will be scheduled once regulations and the state say it is safe to resume.

A Letter to Our Members and Friends

Dear Members and Friends of the Northwest Vintage Car and Motorcycle Museum,

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and will be on a path to normalcy in the coming months. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Oregon government has imposed restrictions on public venues. We are sad to report that Powerland Heritage Park, our home, will be closed to all public activities until sometime in 2021.

Our Rendezvous Car Show, Steam Up Weekends, the Truck Show, and all summer events have been cancelled at this complex. As you know, this is our busy season and this will present serious financial challenges to your Museum. For the last 20 years with your support NWVCMM has grown into a fine center of displays, shows and learning. Over 350 at risk High School students have benefited from the Speedster Automotive program. At this time of need, we ask for your support in the form of a donation to cover our operational costs which includes utilities, insurance and maintenance. The Museum has no debt and no paid employees so we are as lean as possible; however, with no income for this summer we truly need your help.

Please be generous. If not a member or your membership has expired, become one today with the special 3 years for $100.

We will let you know when activities resume at your Museum and Powerland Heritage Park.

Your DONATION is gratefully accepted,

    Tom Ruttan, President

NWVCMM’s Speedster Program


Students of the Speedster Class of 2019-2020.

The Northwest Vintage Car & Motorcycle Museum works with local schools to teach automotive skills to high school students at Powerland Heritage Park. The Museum provides the facility and mentors who teach automotive mechanics, metal fabricating, woodworking, spray painting, automotive electrical, metal casting and foundry work, upholstery, safety, teamwork and car show etiquette. Since the program began, we have had over 350 students participate in the Speedster program. Several of our Speedster students have gone on to Chemeketa Community College’s automotive program.


Thanks to Enterprise Rent-a-Car for voluntarily providing transportation for the students to and from the classes.

Speedster Program Receives $3,000 Grant from RPM


 The Chicago-based RPM Foundation, the educational arm of America’s Automotive Trust, recently awarded our Speedster Program $3,000.00. The Foundation’s main focus is on developing the skills necessary to preserve and restore collector vehicles.

2020 All Comers Rendezvous -- Cancelled

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 crisis and Oregon’s current restrictions on large gatherings and events, we are following the guidelines from the State and the CDC and the decision was made to cancel all events at Powerland Heritage Park indefinitely.
