West Seattle Car Show countdown: Sunday’s looking sunny

Got a set of wheels (two or four, maybe even five) that’s your pride and joy? Are you signed up for Sunday’s seventh annual West Seattle Car Show yet? In our previous preview, we invited prospective participants to share photos – editor@westseattleblog.com – and this is the first one in – Abby shared the photo of her husband’s 1973 Jeep CJ-5. The weather is still looking great for Sunday, when show entries will line the temporarily-closed-to-traffic streets in the heart of The Junction, 10 am-4 pm. Come down, have breakfast/brunch/lunch/coffee, shop, admire the cars (and trucks, and motorcycles, all models/years welcome). And/or be part of it – here’s where to sign up online right now – check out the cool locally designed/made trophies. See you in The Junction on Sunday!

    How come just any car can be registered for this car show? It’s been really nice in years past with the classics, did they not get enough people with older cars to register this time?

    My friend paid his 30$ registration yesterday and was told to show up at 42nd and Alaska with his car. No particular time or other instructions. When we looked it up on the web it still didn’t state a time but it DID state the fee was 20$. Curious…

      The $30 was advance registration including a T-shirt. As of yesterday afternoon – I happened to ask just as they were updating the website – the T-shirts were no longer available (they had just put in the final order), and that’s why it went down to $20. I’ll ask about the time. Please forgive the new organizers as they figure out how to run this from scratch – TR
      P.S. I forgot to answer the earlier question about why open class – That’s because people have asked every year, why does the show only allow “classic” cars – since the show is almost being reinvented this year, due mostly to the unfortunate untimely death of its founder Michael Hoffman, the new organizers thought they could give this a spin and see how it turned out – hoping that even more will be interested in expanded opportunities to show off!

Sorry, comment time is over.
