PHOTOS: 2018 West Seattle Car Show – see the winners!

11:48 AM: The rainshower’s over on Puget Ridge and spectators continue wandering the 11th annual West Seattle Car Show on the north side of the South Seattle College (6000 16th SW; WSB sponsor) campus! Show admission is free and you can get lunch for only $5:

The Kiwanis Club of West Seattle is grilling burgers and hot dogs this year – you can get one with chips and water for only $5. That’s also what you’ll pay for tasting (five tastes, we hear) inside the Northwest Wine Academy, adjacent to the show zone:

Free kids’ activities inside, too. Back to the cars – bright colors under the gray skies!

West Seattle Autoworks and Swedish Automotive (WSB sponsors) are co-presenting the show this year, and proceeds are supporting SSC’s Automotive Technology program (which you can tour while you’re here) – you can help by buying 50/50 Raffle tickets ($1 each or 25 for $20) at the show tent on the east side of the lot – T-shirts for sale too, plus that’s where you can cast a vote for the People’s Choice Award. (Trophies get handed out starting at 2, so get here by then!)

1:44 PM: The winners have been notified and are moving up to their front. If you were still planning to come to the show, hurry! Meantime, one of the nice folks who have stopped by our booth to say hi (thanks, everybody!) shared some photos from a West Seattle car show of the past:

The Alki car show called it quits some years back. The photo provider said the pics were from the late ’80s/early ’90s. Meantime, we’ll update this with today’s winners later!

    We had fun, and there is ample free parking. The wines we tasted were varied and good (we bought a few bottles to bring home).

    Went at 230 hoping to look at cars until 3- but they were all gone! I know sometimes a few leave early- but it was ghost town at 230..

      Organizers accelerated the timeline, moving up the awards from 3 pm to 2 pm, which we mentioned in our coverage as soon as we heard about it – one reason we do “as it happens” coverage of big events when we can, to note changes and other details.- TR

    Thanks for posting pictures of this year’s winners and the old Alki photos. I remember the Alki car show. One year  Wolfman Jack came up as a guest DJ and provided the music. He was happy to talk to you between records.

    You didn’t show the best Motorcycle??

    We should have gone, rather than watch the Mariners lose another game. Some beautiful cars, lots of hard work and $$ put into them.

    Could you please advertise it a little better next year, I didn’t even know! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
