(Scroll down for added photos and updates – as of 10:57 am we’ve got a sunbreak!)
Yes, it’s showery, but the third annual West Seattle Junction Car Show is on, rain or shine as promised, and the brightly colored cars are a great counterpoint to the 10-shades-of-gray sky. There’s plenty of people-watching too – here’s Husky Deli proprietor Jack Miller with one of the Last Resort Fire Department trucks you’ll find on SW Alaska between KeyBank and Easy Street Records:
Right nearby (just west of our tent on the Easy Street corner), you can also buy a West Seattle Junction Car Show T-shirt – shown off here by the West Seattle Helpline crew:
Also at the Helpline booth, you can get in on the drawing/raffle that’s raising money for Helpline, too. We’ll be adding more sights and sounds (classic rock’s on the sound system, by the way) in the hours ahead – the clouds are moving fast so we just might get sunbreaks along the way too! 11:07 AM: And that’s exactly what’s happened – after a couple of good cloudbursts, we’ve got a break, and some blue sky coming in from the west. Meantime, even the police are in rain gear:
The Last Resort Fire Department’s ladder has a flag over the west end of the show.
And speaking of “last resort” – today’s participants include a classic … hearse!
Also, there’s Brian Alvarez’s ’65 Mini … he tells us about it in this clip before we take a peek inside:
More to come!
