This year we were able to break out some classes to golf\jetta or Coupe\touring\Sedan. Without pre-reg we would have never done that- thank you. Show&Shine will be choice, sometimes my kids pick them, sometimes my staff. TONIGHT everyone will get an EMAIL about times, routes and locations. Staff will pull you into parking, please be quick. Several will be placed on the pond for media coverage, others will be all over and including club spots. Goodie bags for 100point – Aristocrats will be handled next to our merch tent at the tent labeled “goodiebags” .





Its 2018 and my sixth or seventh time I’ve been to this coll event. Its the 17th year of the event started by Lance a Pro3 driver and team owner here in the Seattle area. The event moved the Lemay family collection property years back after out growing a known place like XXX Rootbeer & Burgers in Issaquah, its popular low kew space to use.  But Lance always knew this W30 thing would continue to grow and grow. I asked Lance about last year which he replied. “we had about 260ish on the lawn and this year we wont fit everyone one on”.

As the cars rolled in I was positive that would be how the day turned out. By mid after noon there were W30 parked in the streets and external parking lots at the museum. Later lance said ” we’re at 280ish now and with coming a going its hard to get a solid count.” In my former life ( wedding Dj) knew how to push buttons and talk on a microphone and lance offered me a gig to relax on a lawn and enjoy cars, and I’ve always had it one my calendar. Its a side hustle for me and I usually apply my gains toward a summer project, this year a new lawnmower for the house.

Well we had a blast in Leavenworth

Well we had a blast in Leavenworth, thanks Bill for the pic. Caught up with a lot of old friends, saw the rides, eat tasty stuff and drank beer. Seems like more are going Fri- Sat now rather than driving over Saturday. We had a small but awesome cruise from Issy to L-town. We handed out registration tee’s and beer glasses to those that registered before Leavenworth for Sophisticated Euro. We got asked 200 times why we weren’t selling or had a booth but we were in town for fun.
We going to Great Canadian and Pacific Waterlands laster this summer, both for fun. When you work in the industry sometimes you need to have fun time not a busy time.
