Continuing our countdown to the seventh annual West Seattle Car Show, this Sunday in The Junction, some new information:
*More than 100 vehicles are pre-registered so far, oldest one a 1927 Studebaker, newest one a 2014 Tesla. Remember, this is the first year it’s “open class,” cars/trucks/motorcycles of any year welcome, with ten trophies to be awarded in a variety of categories (including a Best in Show trophy in honor of the show’s founder Michael Hoffman, who died this year at age 47). The middle would be 1970 – nothing from ’70 yet, but vehicles from 1969 and 1971 are among the entries (including a ’69 Mercury Cougar and ’71 Buick Centurion). Lots of makes and models are represented – domestic, foreign, classic, not-classic-yet.
*...and room for more! You can still pre-register online, or you can even make up your mind on Sunday morning (you’ll have to bring the $20 registration fee in cash if you do that). On Sunday morning, participating cars will enter from southbound 42nd north of SW Alaska, turning westbound onto Alaska, where you’ll be pointed to your assigned space.
*Show time – an important point for participants and spectators: Though the official end time is 4 pm (start time 10 am), we learned today that awards will be announced at 3 pm, and departures will begin shortly after that, so if you want to see the cars (etc.), arrive by 3! If you’re not bringing your car as a participant, it’s free to wander California SW between Oregon and Edmunds as a spectator and see the cars (make a day of it – breakfast, brunch, lunch, Farmers’ Market, etc.).
*Sponsors and presenters – the final list is now online.
More tomorrow – meantime, we’ll see you on the forecast-to-be-sunny Sunday in The Junction!
