Nascar, Indy Car, NHRA Drag, Hot Rods, & DRIVING 180mph!

good morning everybody
walking around downtown Portland this
morning just want to get some fresh air
before the rain hits got a rain alert
it’s gonna rain and thunder all day
today so we’ll enjoy the first part of
the morning air okay
all righty feel the boost ideas I guess
this is the headquarters of adidas oh
did you know that Paul Bunyan’s got some
style got some swag guys yeah
Paul Bunyan might sport these awesome
Adidas shoes superstar
that’s not quirky I don’t know what is
huh so the headquarters of adidas is
here in Portland Oregon very cool how
about that they do have that big Paul
Bunyan statue right down there in Canton
so that makes sense
cool well I don’t know if there’s a
visitor center or not I’m gonna look
around a little bit that’s a negative
it’s just corporate offices and parking
garages I’m gonna go across the street
though too so I just want to let you
know I went into the office there across
the street kind of hard to get to
because the construction there’s nothing
here except offices that’s that’s too
bad I mean magnets they’re gonna have so
we do a little research I was not
planning on the rain it’s gonna rain bad
today starting in like an hour so get in
the RV and plan my day out otherwise I
saw a semi-truck earlier today that had
a big sign on the back that says
blinkers on question mark please don’t
speed up that is the universal thing to
do when any big rig is trying to get
lose the gap on us I’m gonna get out of
downtown Portland because and I don’t
want to do it and then or be so and see
do I see my shirt good I found something
related to this south of Portland so
we’ll try to beat the rain there okay
all right that’s right sporting my
NASCAR leather jacket because ladies and
gentlemen we are here at world of speed
here in Wilsonville organ a massive
Motorsports museum known nationwide but
this museum represents the Northwest
contributions to motorsports and that
includes hot rods drag racing music
influenced cars classic cars race cars
Indy cars NASCAR everything I am so
excited and on their web page it says
photos and videos permitted so yes I’m
gonna go buy ticket I’m gonna share it
with you guys so it’s a $10 to get in
the museum and there’s some other stuff
going on big boy it’s all American
classic cars and Motorsports everything
check out their magnets
little trailer it can be yours oh it’s a
cooler are you kidding me it’s an
Airstream cooler for five hundred and
fifty bucks that would be awesome on
somebody’s porch and yes we’re gonna see
a lot of cars in the museum so let’s get
the started they didn’t have anything
that says world of speed on they’re
magnets for some reason they just had a
whole bunch of car stuff but they had a
coca-cola one so I went with that magnet
and this will be my world of speed
how about Mario Andretti and here is his
1967 Ford Fairlane
stop car for NASCAR o-67 gt40 right here
there are a lot of cars in here remember
as always I’m only gonna show my
favorite 10% of what’s going on in here
when I was out there in Utah doing my
speed test out in the desert on the TW
200 this is a land speed racer here
how fast does she go well it’s got to
small-block Chevy’s 750 horsepower each
and this bad boy goes 288 miles per hour
that’s fast
Oh in 1994 Lola IndyCar there an hour
talking and like it’s not just cars and
racing and they have a whole music
section because how music inspired
racing and I guess some stuff all this
acts up here signed by gene Simmons I
doubt it works but look at this cassette
boom box oh yeah this one has to be 60s
right 8-track
SEP 17 where is some funky stuff in here
I’ll tell you what we have little
science don’t know you can you can mess
with these things all you want that’s
why they’re out here in the open here’s
a Sylvania Thunderbird
it’s an old radio – they’ve been going
backwards that music section is called
the wall of sound okay so that’s where
that starts let’s read the first
sentence here it says the synergy
between cars and music connects our
lives like long road trips bringing
folks together singing along to songs
that stir up good memories so that’s the
connection and of course we got to talk
motorcycles if we’re talking speed
there’s a 1930s flathead engine 1936
knucklehead 1948 panhead 66 shovel head
an 84 big twin and the twin cam 88 and a
1917 model F sidecar Harley I’d sit here
checks would be right there in his
throne a couple dragsters here whose
1969 there’s a t9 d there number five
well that’s really bright and go okay
and it’s NASCAR time and they got
Richard Petty as Chevy Monte Carlo 79
who looks clean looks ready to go
it’s firing that girl up called gas pump
here that’s been converted to a screen
showing stuff and being as I have
actually camped inside the infield of
the Daytona 500 twice in my life it is
pretty cool to see this here in the
northwest the Daytona and they’re on a
slope up here there’s Dale Earnhardt jr.
Chevy up there number eight and Terry
Labonte is 88 Budweiser did you hear
about that a week ago Dale jr. and his
family actually got in a plane crash in
Tennessee I think it was they crashed
their plane caught fire they’re all ok
but yeah that’s kind of scary
oh yeah Tom Cruise Days of Thunder they
show some of the Daytona track in there
in the old RV his back then that’s an
old seat that’s a really cool jumpsuit
they have some simulator rides that you
can pay extra to ride to normally
they’re being serviced right now they
think they might have one of them fixed
later but a 1995 mercedes-benz Indy car
a 98 Ford for the NASCAR and at 62 Lotus
come back maybe they’ll get it fixed
hey it’s an authentic 1958 Egg Chair
I’ve seen some of these beat-up ones at
like swap meets and antique stores
because we can sit in it and we’ll
listen to the music they’ll see how
comfortable this is Oh
I mean like how do you make the music
start Siri play music and speak wait
1958 yeah probably not
is this the future of semi trucks if so
I like it that is sexy
look at that it’s all about being more
aerodynamic to get better fuel economy
so they did away with the side mirrors
so that it’s more aerodynamic and then
they use cameras to be able to see
what’s behind you into the side and that
sign down there says it has run smart
predictive cruise control it’s nice it’s
nice you don’t got to be big to be fast
and successful I got three Mini Coopers
the 1960s grab Offenhauser the very
first Formula One race car these cars
are not very fuel-efficient they have a
little model here to kind of show us I’m
kind of happy getting seven or eight
miles per gallon in Miranda after seeing
this you can consume 18 gallons of fuel
in three seconds okay that’s just idle
idling right now
and time to refuel we can test out a
supercharger here uh-huh and see how
that works to push the NASCAR down the
road so we’ll get it fired up that’s
going and then we’ll hit the gas here
one goes
and we can see how the gears work of a
quick change rear end
and the turbocharger here get a look at
that guy cutaway there we’ll hit the gas
here there she goes Oh
Bucky’s speed shop I wonder if they’ve
got a turbo v10 for Miranda I do see
some header gaskets we’re gonna need
some more of this don’t remind me
don’t remind me look at this garage all
sorts of toys mm-hmm
always good to have an extra big block
or seven I got me a turkey sandwich I’m
gonna wait and see if they can fix that
so the NASCAR is gonna be out for
several days the processors broke at
least I got to sit in it and try it and
it was fun to ride the Lotus very very
much worth it I think pretty cool spot
pretty cool place I’m gonna head on out
it’s been nice oh it is pouring rain
outside well you know either way made
the most of it right got to see
something cool all right we’ll put our
coca-cola magnet up there next to the
Mount st. Helens and route 66 magnet
there mmm-hmm we’ve been having some
rain it’s letting up this is about the
latest that’s been so I decided to come
outside and share with you what I got
going on the back I do God you have my
cover as you can see the water beating
right off it no problem keeping the bike
dry underneath but it doesn’t protect
against is if I’m driving on a dirt road
well the dirts gonna get kicked back
under the rear tires and it’s simply
gonna go right up the bottom of this
cover right here and get the bike dirty
and wet so and I’m just sitting here
might as well protect it as much I can
and I also decided because of the
weather and everything just to kind of
wait it out here in Wilsonville Oregon
and get a fresh start tomorrow after it
dries up so I’m here at a Camping World
in Wilsonville and I appreciate Camping
World giving me the okay to have a safe
spot to park because it’s gonna be few
and far in between as we go on south for
sure I’ll show you what’s going on
inside though you know you gotta get
creative all in the rainy days so
netflix is my friend let’s see the ps4
is my friend and actually Netflix just
suggested a new show and I like it I’m
only 22 minutes into it but hyperdrive
they’re drifting and racing cars in a
competition with some really good
driving it’s really cool but because of
the rain and the clouds and the lack of
solar you know running the TV and using
the microwave and stuff like that and
the I’m probably gonna have to run the
generator for a couple hours on these
rainy days just to kind of get back
solar you know um where’s my kid oh
there you are
you hanging out right there you know
what comes next to me I got cat bed over
that’s comfy it’s you could after I move
my drone stuff of course
well let me know okay well my buddy my
baby sleeping the whole day away huh all
right man all right so Jack’s announcing
in a couple days
take care guys
okay can I cut back in with one more
little word of caution if you find
yourself staying at Camping World
boondocking and Camping World you’re
gonna sleep overnight during the
business hours of Camping World I highly
suggest you to lock the doors of your RV
as you may have customers coming around
thinking that you are an RV for sale if
you park near the service center
customers will walk the entire perimeter
and they think that they should just be
opening every single door on the
property okay so it’s just I guess part
of the life of living in a camping world
for the night but yes lock all of your
doors all every single garage door cam
lock outside lock the entire RV up or
put a note on the door that says
occupied not for sale maybe cracked me
up though all right good night guys

  1. Great way to make the best of a rain day. Great video. Thanks Eric and Jax. Safe travels.πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ€˜πŸΌπŸ˜Ž

  2. Why couldn't you just get a cheap Wal-Mart $10 tarp for underneath, put the bike on top of it then once it is in place wrap it like a package then put the outside cover over that = 360* coverage?

  3. My brother went to Daytona and took a few laps with a NASCAR driver for a thrill of a lifetime. He couldn't believe the driver, this tall old guy with a cowboy hat put on his helmet and climbed in, it was the "KING OF NASCAR" Richard Petty. He told my brother he does this occasionally and thanked him for the opportunity to give him a ride.
    What a ride…..

  4. That's CooL 😎 man and I think that Coachman Miranda is darn neat I used to drive truck driving one like her would definitely take me back

  5. Saw on your previous video that you now have business cards on the outside of your RV. Now you need a "do not disturb" sign. 😁

  6. Fun video, Eric! Loved the tour of the auto museum. Thank you and look forward to your next video. πŸšœπŸ‘

  7. Just saying it now, because by your next video, you will be at 200,000 subscribers. Congratulations, well deserved. Safe travels my friend.

  8. LMAO imagine staying at camping world and you are on the couch, watching a adult film and rubbing one out and someone opens the door and starts to come in. LMAO

  9. Hilarious. I'm in PDX, offered to help you turn around anti-camping laws, and you haven't responded. Meet?

  10. Them shoes are cool . Now I want to jam some Run DMC . Forgot … and Rev. Run cooking shows . Killer video Eric .

  11. Eric , you don't need splash up getting that bike from underneath . Install a full length brush skirt underneath like mine has . Knocks it all right to the ground .

  12. Boy, that was interesting. We just missed you. My Mercedes SLK club was at the World of Speed on August, Friday 23. We had a VIP tour of the museum. The last Harley engine is the one I have in my Heritage. The gentleman that helped you with the race car was our tour guide.

  13. been watching your show from its conception,(I should get a mug or an award or a mouse that jax caught),,still, after a long shit day @ work,,a bud,a splindula and watching your adventure travel on it's way,, makes me really happy,,thank u,,

  14. Another excellent video. I'm not into race cars, but I'd like to see that museum. That was a nice find. I always look forward to your videos. πŸ™‚

  15. There are a lot of us " Eric and Jax " fan / friends near Wilsonville. The Frys across the 5 from where you were is a cool place to shop. Come up with a Eric and Jax shirt and I will get it.

  16. Eric why did this one get de- monetized? There was no ads what so ever man. You better check and see man bc when I watched at 8pm there was no ads at all and your at 22k views so if it wasn't allowed to be monetize you lost some revenues on this one.

  17. Adidas does have an employee store on site that occasionally lets us go in.
    I didn’t know about that place in Wilsonville!
    Sometimes it takes people from out of the area to make you aware what’s around your home area!

  18. ERICK,
    Eastbound out of Portland, have you ever driven the Old Historic Colombia River Gorge Highway ?
    I have read that there are many many waterfalls from the numerous
    streams that feed the Colombia.


  19. wife and I were on a Harley trip some where in California. stopped for a break and cool down. Don the snake was inside the little store. out for a ride on his Harley.

  20. To bad you didn’t wait around in Portland as this weekend is very big at the Portland international Raceway with all types of racing going on.

  21. I’ve been a subscriber since the very beginning… Eric, man, you are a rockstar… and always have been, all my love.

  22. Pause at 4:20,, That's It! That is my old jam box I kid you NOT! OMG, I got that for Christmas when I was a little girl. That was my break from being stuck listening to my parent's horrid country music. First song on the radio when I got that was BOC Burnin for you. Is it for sale? how much? I believe it is a JCPennys brand. No friggin way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Eric please answer this before I make a purchase…Do you find 32 foot RV any much more of a problem than smaller ones when obtaining good spots or maneuvering around?

  24. Hey Eric…… to help stop (or reduce) dirt and water getting under your bike cover, just get one of those fibre skirts for under the back of your RV.

  25. A question I've been wanting to ask how old was Jax when he started RV travels? If he was not a kitten how did he adjust? I have an older cat and don't know if she would take to the RV! Love your lifestyle!

  26. That's too funny having to lock your doors. Enjoyed touring the racing museum! Those were the largest pair of Adidas I've ever seen!

  27. I've watched almost all your videos and if I had to choose which one is my favorite from the 1000+ episodes series it's gotta be the one titled "A day In the rv life?: Extreme weather". You were having a hard time then but it was really enjoyable to watch. Just thow in a video like that every now and then please.

  28. that semi truck was god awful.give me an old kw 900 with the long hood any day..besides the future isn't all its cracked up 2 b.loved the old boombox as well.

  29. no racing museum is complete with out a whelen modified on display.after all its the oldest and most popular division in nascar.also has the most loyal fans as well.

  30. Wonder if those skirts that look like black nylon broom that goes on the rear bumper of the RV would keep dust off your bike? Ppl normally use them for TOADs, but may work!

  31. Hey, Eric, I was heading to Walmart this morning and there you were. I stopped by and got your card your curtains were closed so I didn't disturb you. Kind of funny your heading away from Washington and I'm moving back. Can't wait to see your next video.

  32. Very entertaining Eric! You're like my son. He get's so pumped on all that car stuff, fishing, trucks…his name is Eric too.

  33. If you like the show Hyperdrive, then check out Lite Brite on YouTube. She has an awesome channel and does many cool adventures in her Jeep. She was the young, blonde girl from the show.

  34. By 2040, roughly half of the vehicles on the road will still be powered by fossil fuels, but all new vehicles sold will be EVs. I wonder what life will be for Indy 500 in 2040 ?

  35. Eric what type of rv gos do you use? I had a rand mcnally overdryve7 rv and its toast after just one year! Seems the company has problems Recommendations?

  36. You have to do a blooper video and PLEASE include your "visitors" while at camping world!!! Obviously it happened or you would not have been laughing during your cut-in. Stay safe as always and God bless…

  37. Eric! I was almost heartbroken! I saw the headline and thought you were in Indy and I missed you! Just so you know Labor Day weekend is a big deal in Indiana. From my hometown in Auburn IN there is the ACDfestival, you should look it up. Then the NHRA nationals are in Indy the same weekend. If you ever want to do it some year, we would love to show ya around.

  38. You look bad ass behind the wheel of ol' pop smart Eric, you missed your calling lol. Talk about a kid in a candy story. You look like you were having so much fun!. You defiantly living the life brother! Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

  39. hey you are almost at 200,000! Like right now!
    Congrats. Its been a long haul.
    Been watching from college, getting booted from the parking lot, and van life. O my.
