Soapbox Derby Vehicle Parked in the Neighborhood


This is the kind of thing you see when taking a walk in Portland.

Note from Dawn: I saw them testing this up on Mt. Tabor right before the soapbox derby last year.

It was when I lived in SE Portland, OR.  That family had a habit of collecting EVERYTHING and then displaying it randomly on their front lawn.  For  a long period of time they had a toilet sitting right in lawn. I asked them about it and they told me they eventually planned on switching the toilet out with their broken one. To me it looked more like “come take our free toilet”.  They also had about 20 bikes all over the outside of their house. My roommate and I called them the kooks.
