2020 Tour Update 1: Destinations, Cars and Coronavirus Concerns

Published by SCM Tour on


Publisher Martin recently played hooky and made a quick trip to Skamania Lodge in his new Volvo.

We are 122 days from the start of the tour, which is an eternity if you’re a mayfly, a kid anticipating Christmas or a classic car enthusiast who has secured a coveted spot on the SCM 1000. It’s the blink of an eye if you’re planning the world’s finest tour.

Which means, I’ve been busy making plans, and I’m ready to share some of those exciting details with you.


Our host hotels are now set in stone.

As always, we’ll start off at the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland, OR.  

Night two finds us in the Columbia Gorge where we’ll stay at the beautiful Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, WA.

Oregon Garden Resort, Silverton OR.

Night three we’re in wine country at the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton, OR.

Inn at Spanish Head, Lincoln City, OR

Night four takes us to the coast where we’ll stay right on the beach at the Inn at Spanish Head in Lincoln City, OR.  

Night five we’re back in Portland at the Heathman for the awards dinner and a good night’s rest.
