In the 1930s, the U.S. government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until NASA finished working out the bugs in kissing. Self-determine a new pastime with today's Groupon. Choose between the following convention-show options:
For $12, you get two one-day-admission tickets to the Portland Classic Car Expo October 7–9 at the Portland Expo Center (a $24 value).
For $7, you get two one-day-admission tickets to the Home Improvement & Remodeling Show October 21–23, at the Oregon Convention Center (a $14 value).
The Portland Classic Car Expo's 250 classic cars and nostalgic displays hearken back to '50s-era auto worship, while live music keeps ears awash in premodern sounds. Enthusiasts and collectors of all ages gather to admire vintage Fords, Chevrolets, and Depression-era hovercraft. With a theme of High School Memories threading together many of exhibits, adults can revel in the sleek fins and retro designs that grace many old hotrods on display.
Alternatively, The Home Improvement & Remodeling show lets homeowners compare estimates from more than 300 contractors and find house-refurbishing products at their leisure. Browsers can seek out countless indoor and outdoor accouterments, as well as new siding, energy-efficient devices, and locking windows to protect sunrooms from adventurous turkeys.
