Will you come home from next Sunday’s West Seattle Car Show with one of these?

One week until the seventh annual West Seattle Car Show – an “open-class” show for the first time – and we have a sneak peek at some of the trophies! Local artist Mindi Katzman (below left) designed them, Brian Walker (below right) fabricated them, and Mindi shared a few photos:

The show will again be in the heart of The Junction, 10 am-4 pm on September 14th, with California SW closed to traffic between Oregon and Edmunds. Organizers had almost 100 cars signed up when we checked a few days ago, and there’s room for more – any year of car, truck, or motorcycle – ten trophies are up for grabs!

You can sign up online right now – if you don’t make your decision until the last minute, there will probably be room if you show up first thing next Sunday morning, but why risk it? Register in advance . If you’re planning to be a spectator, admission is free as always, thanks to the support of community businesses/organizations, including presenters West Seattle Autoworks and Swedish Automotive (both WSB sponsors) and sponsors (including WSB, proud to have been part of this every year since its launch in 2008). See you in The Junction next Sunday!

P.S. Are YOU participating in the show? If so, consider sending us a pic of your entry so we can include it in one of our previews in the days ahead – editor@westseattleblog.com – thanks!

    I’d like to nominate myself as a candidate for that Best Antique trophy. I hope having a few screws loose doesn’t disqualify me.

    Actual car-related trophies!?! These are soooooo much better than the normal plaque or trophy and are actually worth displaying!

    Those are such cool, and appropriate, trophies!


    I think Mindi, Brian, and whoever thought of using car parts for trophies, each deserve their own trophy! :-)

    Brian here from K.C.M.A. & services , Thanks for the nice comments about the trophies, it was fun making them and most of the credit goes to Mindi , she had most of them figured out all I had to do was attach them and help decide the names. Hope to see everybody at the car show. Maybe next year I can get my truck there.

Sorry, comment time is over.
