…and from ven­dors
at swap meets and car shows.

April 2014

Spring Is Here & Car Sea­son Is In Full Swing

 

Now that win­ter is offi­cially over and the ever-present win­ter storms are finally begin­ning to take a back seat to tulips, daf­fodils and an increas­ing num­ber of sunny days, it is appar­ent that the car show, swap meet and cruise-in sea­son is hit­ting its stride.  The month began with two of the biggest parts swap meets on the West coast — the Port­land Swap Meet and the Port­land Inter­na­tional Race­way Swap Meet. Together, the com­bined meets fea­tured over 5,000 ven­dor stalls and attracted some 50,000+ buy­ers and gawk­ers. Among the inter­est­ing and fun goings on were two North­west authors, David Dick­in­son and Lance Lambert.

 

Dave DickensonDavid  was on hand sell­ing and auto­graph­ing his book, “The Old Car Nut Book”. It’s a col­lec­tion of sto­ries sub­mit­ted by car own­ers around the coun­try, includ­ing a few writ­ten by Dave. Get one. It will remind you of why we all love old cars so much… and it is a fun read for those rainy nights when we can’t cruise the main drag of town in our col­lec­tor cars. If you didn’t make the Port­land meet, Dave also has books for sale on Ama­zon: www.amazon.com/The-Old-Car-Nut-Book/dp/0989806502/

 

lance lambert
Another great read, is “Fend­ers, Fins & Friends — Con­fes­sions of a Car Guy” by noted TV per­son­al­ity and author, Lance Lam­bert, who was also at Port­land. For over 20 years, Lance has been the host of The Vin­tage Vehi­cle Show, and along the way has rubbed his auto­mo­tive shoul­ders with Jay Leno, Lee Iac­coca, George Bar­ris while pro­duc­ing great TV and col­lect­ing plenty of auto­mo­tive expe­ri­ences.  In his new book, Lance writes about his adven­tures with cars from the time he was a teen up until the present day.  It is a great col­lec­tion of sto­ries and is also avail­able from Ama­zon: www.amazon.com/Fenders-Fins-Friends-Confessions-Car/dp/0984489878  

 

l lemay-acm-opening-mbc-marquee-02.jpgIn other car event news, don’t miss the Cruise In at the LeMay-America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, WA, This April 10th.  You can join other car enthu­si­asts in select­ing a People’s Choice Award as you show off your ride or just check out the show held on the grounds.

There’s plenty more events hap­pen­ing here in the Pacific North­west and we’ll post some more hap­pen­ings later in the month.  We also want to apol­o­gize for not updat­ing the site sooner, but life some­times has a way of get­ting in the way of work.  Monthly updates and so on will be cur­rent soon. Our reg­is­tra­tion link is still not prop­erly work­ing so if you have events or updates of events to post, email us:  nwcarevents (at) AutoWord.net. Be sure to include the date, loca­tion, name of event, address and con­tact info (phone/email/website, plus a brief descrip­tion of any vital info such as admission/entry/vendor fees).

 

Finally, it is not too late to get your copy of the 2014 NW Car Events Cal­en­dar. Dsc07491-smallThe Revised 3rd print­ing was done in Feb­ru­ary and we added 4 pages of event list­ings to the book. It is the most com­pre­hen­sive list­ing of auto­mo­tive events avail­able in the Pacific North­west, cov­er­ing Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia,Idaho, Mon­tana, Ore­gon and Wash­ing­ton. Copies are still avail­able, but they are going fast. Sim­ply click on the links at the top left col­umn and we’ll get your copy in the mail pronto!
