There are a few marquee events that mark summer in Seattle. The Summer Solstice Parade in Fremont, the Blue Angels, and the Greenwood Car Show. It’s been a dreary winter and the masses have turned are out for this sunny Seattle day – the first in a long time. Walk Greenwood Avenue with me in today’s blog post.
The show, which is made up of individuals, local clubs, and vendors pushing everything from turbochargers to kettle corn. Even the Hell’s Angels had a pop-up tent settled between handcrafted gelato and a coffee truck.
Founded by the Greenwood Knights Car Club, the car show brings lots of foot traffic to Greenwood businesses plus any donations, car entry fees, and vendor fees go back into Seattle charities and automotive scholarships. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary for the show.

Naturally, lots of American muscle and older classics are on display.
Not all of the rides are polished to perfection. This Chevy truck was pieced together by its owner who proudly brings it in each year for the past 20.
Seattle Police and the King County Sheriff get in on the fun with these classic patrol cars.
I enjoyed seeing these Russian Ladas—not a make you see every day.
Don’t forget about our friends across the pond—the Seattle Mini Owners Club was very well represented.
As were a few beautifully restored Triumphs.
I’m not sure if we have more VW enthusiasts than other areas of the country, but I really see a large following for VW’s of all shapes and sizes at every event. This bus was especially beautiful.
If you’re looking for more than just cars, the Miss Bardahl U-40 Hydro was on display in the Safeway parking lot.
A few creative vehicles are in the mix, like these Jurassic Park Jeeps complete with live cargo boxes.
