“Keep Portland Weird” is a popular bumper sticker around Oregon’s biggest city. It’s not hard to see why. Home to such strangeness as the 24 Hour Church of Elvis, the Voodoo Doughnut shop and the World Naked Bike Ride, Portland takes some beating for serving up an endless stream of bizarre businesses and beliefs.
So perhaps it’s only natural that Randy Grubb should have gravitated to a place close to this hub of oddness. Because the vehicles Randy builds in his remote workshop would make even the open-minded residents of Portland look on in amazement.
