I don't know all of the twists of the law and non-law that is Open Carry in Oregon. But then, I've got the CHL partly so I don't need to worry about it that much.
See ORS 166.250, primarily.
In plain language, the summary from Kevin Starrett's Understanding Oregon's Gun Laws states:
... it is perfectly legal for a person, who is not prohibited from owning a firearm, to carry a loaded handgun in his or her car, within reach, without a CHL, so long as the handgun is not concealed.
That is also followed by a huge caution (in the book) indicating you're likely to get arrested at the point of a gun and hauled to jail while you quibble over your right to do so, given abuse and outright ignorance by bureaucrats and LEO's. And yet, it's legal.
Interestingly, Oregon law defines "open carry in a belt holster" as "not concealed." It, unfortunately, does not define what is
Caution on the meaning of "concealed" as well. It's undefined. So, does concealed mean that it cannot be seen from outside by casual glance? Does it mean under your clothing? Does it mean whatever the LEO wants it to mean, if he/she claims it wasn't seen?
There are also numerous municipalities that have various ordinances regulating various aspects of weapons possession.
Over on OpenCarry.org, there is a group of folks that has worked on a pamphlet summary of OC statutes in Oregon. Click.
And you can engage in discussions in the Oregon related forum at OpenCarry.org. There are lots of folks that OC regularly and are fairly knowledegable about the ins and outs of OC in OR.
Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

I was under the assumption there were no laws about being able to carry in your vehicle?

Kevin can answer these questions to a T.
It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.
