Portland is the best place in America to own and enjoy classic cars. It has a mild inland climate with minimal snowfall and road salt, meaning that old cars will not rust unless they are left outside with their tops down during the damp winter. There is also a good supply of reasonably-priced classic cars and an entire cottage industry of excellent mechanics in the city. Additionally, its killer roads that crisscross the Pacific Coast and Willamette Valley wine country provide the ideal settings for a pleasurable ride in a classic car.
2) Monterey, California
Some of the most prestigious classic car events are held in the Monterey Peninsula, including The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, The Quail Motorsports Gathering, and others. The city is also located close to some of the most beautiful parts of US 1 and the 17-Mile Drive, providing lots of opportunities for scenic drives. Its fairly arid climate ensures that most cars will remain rust-free.
