    I couldn't get it to click on Events.
    This weekend was the annual Vintiques of Yakima Northwest Nationals in Yakima WA. I skipped out on getting my boat ready for vacation and grabbed the camera and went up and sniffed a bit of chrome.
    Here are some of the traditional or in a case or two real close to traditional rides that were there.

    This roadster has been around as long as I have been hitting rod runs in the PNW

    There were several first generation Novas there today

    I see this truck at almost every event I go to. Some of it is a bit ot for an open wheel truck but a presentable low buck truck built out of a big truck

    I really wanted this vise and stand but didn't want to have to carry it to the gate.

    I met this car on 97 just before I turned in my driveway Wednesday night and it was pulling a canned ham trailer.

    I'm pretty sure this is the Merc that Vince Alcott restored about 20 years ago. He was the guy that a lot of you may have bought tail light lenses off that hit California and Arizona swap meets in his bus.

    Thanks for the pictures. This show always falls on two of my Grandsons birthday weekend so I never get to attend. That red track roadster looks like one that was started by builder in George WA. several years ago. I think he passed on before he could finish it. I have wondered what happened to it...... Now I know thanks to you.
     
  10. Thanks for sharing your pics!

    Thanx for posting. I would have loved to have talked to the guys who brought their "rally" cars - the Peking to Paris builds - and taken a few 100 pix of each one. Gary

    They had a pretty decent display behind the cars with photos but I didn't take a photo of it.
    Woops, they did the 2013 Cape Horn rally. in South America rather than the Peking to Paris I'll have to go back and correct that.
    Here is an article on the cars and drivers. A lot of local rodders had a hand in the building of the cars.

    We just got back from Yakima. Looks like you snagged a pic of my Tudor and my dads 3 window. I've been going to the vintiques run for about 20 years now. My parents went to the very first one when it was called a Trolley Run! It's always a good show with a lot of fun to be had!!

    I grew up in "The Valley" and have been to many of the Vintiques shows. Now I'm further South, but my Sister is moving back to Yakima, so I'll plan on being there next year. Great pic's.

    I may be wrong but that looks to be a 170 or 200. Good use for the darned thing.

    Thanks for the photos.
