Just shot that video in The Junction while checking on setup for today’s West Seattle Junction Car Show (co-sponsored by local businesses including WSB), 8 am-4 pm along California SW between Genesee and Edmunds, which is closed (as is SW Alaska between 42nd and 44th) for the duration:

Not only did more than 100 cars pre-register in the past few months, but organizer Michael Hoffman from Liberty Bell Printing tells us this morning that so many showed up for day-of signups that traffic was backing up all the way to Fauntleroy Way! In addition to seeing classic cars, there’s entertainment along the way, and a square dance scheduled in Walk-All-Ways around 1 pm, plus the Oh Boy Oberto hydroplane is parked near Cupcake Royale/Super Supplements. Admission’s free but bring a few $ for raffles with great prizes. Also in The Junction, the West Seattle Farmers’ Market is happening 10 am-2 pm as always – today’s special event, tomato-tasting (postponed from that stormy Sunday a couple weeks ago) – and here’s today’s fresh sheet. We’ll add a few more car-show-setup photos here shortly and will be reporting “live” from The Junction most of the day – see you there (and for the rest of today’s West Seattle events/activities, here’s the WS Weekend Lineup). ADDED 8:32 AM: Here are more of the cars, after they parked in place (diagonal along both sides of the show zone on California):
And here’s the aforementioned Oberto hydro:
Our next update will be in a separate report – we’re on our way back down to set up for the day at show info HQ at California/Alaska.
