West Seattle Car Show 2014: Two weeks from today; open to cars, trucks, motorcycles from all years!

Two weeks from today, the newly expanded West Seattle Car Show will be happening in the heart of The Junction. You still have time to sign up if you’re interested in showing off your wheels; this year it’s “open class” – cars, trucks, motorcycles of all years welcome! – an expansion from past years in which registration was limited to “classic” cars only. If you’ve missed our previous previews, the new organizers are Swedish Automotive and West Seattle Autoworks (both WSB sponsors), taking over the show in tribute to its founder, the late Michael Hoffman. It’s happening 10 am-4 pm on Sunday, September 14th, and you can go here to sign up now! If you would rather not register online, get your form by e-mailing wscarshow@gmail.com or calling 206.938.8685. (WSB is a WS Car Show sponsor again this year, as we’ve been since it launched in 2008 – see you there!)

  1. I know of a person with a 1988 classic cadillac that they have been wanting to sell. Would this be a place where they could do this? I am trying to help this person out. Thanks.

  2. Good question; I don’t know but will ask (don’t know if we’ll get an answer until after the holiday weekend, unless an organizer/producer sees this sooner). I think I’ve seen cars noted as “for sale” in years past but in a very low-key way, secondary to actually showing and answering questions about the car. – TR

  3. Car shows are pretty typical places to advertise a classic as long as it is low-key.

    If the 1988 Cadillac is in good shape I don’t see an issue. But it should be presented as ‘car show’ quality – clean inside and out, no damage other than regular wear and tear, and be there meant to be shown. If it’s less than this then list it on craigslist.

  4. If you can’t get into the show just secure perimeter parking early and be available. (Pack a lunch)

  5. Sorry to see it’s now open to all years. I watched the Greenwood Car Show go in that direction many years ago and it just became too big. I like the coziness of the W. Seattle show. As someone who has gone to a lot of shows over the years, it’s nice to have a few that stay small and are restricted to classics. There’s plenty of the big shows all summer.

  6. I agree with the classics or muscle cars only, you should sell your car on craigs list this is not a used car lot its a car show…
