NEW EVENT: West Seattle High School hosting car show next month

Three years after the last West Seattle Car Show, there’s a new event for showing off amazing automobiles.

West Seattle High School automotive-technology instructor Carmin Thomas sends word that they’re hosting a car show on June 11th – open to the public to enter, as well as to students. It’s non-competitive, so you won’t have to figure out what class you’re entering – just sign up and show up. The full version of the flyer has a QR code you can use. Entry fee is $5 for students, $10 for non-students. Even if you’re not interested in entering, you’re welcome to come look, 1-4 pm on Saturday, June 11th. The school is at 3000 California SW.

    Is there anyone in West Seattle with a Bugatti?  Either a Veyron or Chiron?  And if yes, can you attend this car show?  I’ve never seen a Bugatti before and I feel like I’m missing out.  Thanks!

      It was so refreshing to read this response after all the terrible politics, economy, and school shooting news today… You know what? I want to see a Bugatti too!

      As of a few years ago-no. I asked at the auto show and was told at that time the closest was San Francisco. However….doesn’t mean there isn’t one now in the area. I’d love to see one in person too!!

        Cardriver,  there used to be in the Junction and I believe it was one of the Merchants who organized it I think his name was Mike.  It was kind of a mini Junction spring fair and it got people out and about into the Junction.  I think the WS Highschool all class reunion has had them these past couple of years during the all class reunion at the High School.  It is pretty cool to see these classic cars.  I think Burien also puts one on as well.

          There’s no all-class reunion again this year, so the small display of cars that usually generates won’t be happening. The big West Seattle car show was held in The Junction 2008-2014; it moved to South Seattle College in 2015. The last one was in 2018 – its sponsors put out the call (repeatedly) for someone to take over, but no one stepped up. (History here: )

            Not totally true.  My buddy and I met with them face to face in 2019 and offered to take it over and was never contacted after the meeting. It’s too bad as we are both very involved in the local car scene and would have loved to bring this back.

            I don’t know the minutiae but certainly it’s wide open for somebody to start a new one!

          Hi-Yu parade years ago would have some classic cars go through the parade and they would then be on display on Alki, west of the bathhouse.

      I recall seeing one at the Exotics  at Redmond Town-center car meet( .

      Me too. Lots of super cars would make this car show shine!

    When we went to the Petersen Auto Museum in Los Angeles a number of years ago I have to admit, I stopped in my tracks when I saw a Bugatti.  I am more of an ‘I don’t know what kind of car it is, it’s the blue one’ car person but the Bugatti – it makes an impression.  I’d love to see what the students are working on in auto class too.

    Was sad to get there with my 94 year old dad to find that there was one car left…. I guess it ended an hour early!

Sorry, comment time is over.
