This lady has a large 40X96 car barn with a nice collection of about 10 cars, but a lot of other wonderful stuff as well, including an entire replica Coke-a-Cola soda shop.
The car collection tended toward Fords modified to go fast, but the hostess' mom's T-Bird was there, looking glorious, and also a prize-winning LaSalle convertible. The hosts requested that, due to privacy concerns, no pictures of their collection appear on the Internet, and we're not identifying them by name, either.
All we took away was memories. The picture was taken in the parking lot of the fire station at Brooks, after the CPPC gang had done serious damage to an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. We had 15 members and a few friends of Tom Shepherd attend the early morning visit. Frank was a successful businessman, who owned an auto parts business and property in Southeast Portland. He and his brother had an interest in Pre-War toys, padlocks and banks, just to mention a few of the thousands of treasures that are on display at there museum.
Frank tells the story that he and his brother would go, most weekends to toy conventions and bring home suitcases of toys and then go the next weekend, during the conventions season, year after year.
Click here or on the picture to see the gallery of Mike Bade's photos. The toy museum is full of some of the most amazing cast iron early pre-war toys, one might ever see, not just one or two, but groups of the same type of toy.

Frank has enlisted the help of his family to keep the museum open.
A recent family tragedy in lateleft the museum in limbo, not able to be open regularly. Efforts of find other family members to help keep the museum open are forthcoming.
Frank has enlisted his grand children to help with cataloguing, unseen inventory and hopefully, you may be able to enjoy even more in the future. For sure we will have to have another visit to Kidds in the future, or you should try to go on your own, take the grandchildren.
The museum is registered as non profit, future generations will be able to enjoy Frank and his brothers treasures. February 24, — Stan Adams collection of cars and petroliana By Mike Bade The second stop on the February 25 tour the Stan and Sheryl Adams car Museum, as he calls it, a mile drive from our first stop. Stan Adams and his wife Sheryl are native Portland residents.
Stan and his wife had a successful tire business on the East side of downtown Portland. After selling their business they have enjoyed being able to collect a variety of collector and high performance vehicles and automobillia. They have carefully selected cars that are of interest to them and now have approx. They also have an amazing collection of restored gas pumps, gas signs, peddle cars, vintage bicycles; filling their museum from floor to ceiling, carefully displayed for maximum effect.
There are not any collections that would rival Stand Sheryl's in the Portland area, that I know of. Of course there is are many back stories, as to how each item was acquired, which Stan shared with the group, too much delight.
Too bad Stan does not have any Plymouths, we would recruit him to join our club. For a photographer, like me much time was spent photographing as much of Stan's cars and collectables as possible, are true treat.
See photos on the CPPC website. Another tour to Stan's may be possible at a later time, hopefully.

Two years later it was acquired to become a museum with five historic building also moved to the five acre site.
