We couldn't have picked a better day to hold our very first import car show in Bellingham, WA. The weather was perfect and the amount of quality cars was impressive. Our goal for this show was to raise as much money as possible for the National MS Society. Our sponsors were very generous and donated merchandise to help us accomplish this goal. In total, there were 61 cars that entered the car show which nearly filled the available space at the Sehome Village Haggen. People from as far away as Vancouver, BC and Tacoma, WA came to Bellingham which meant that there were quite a few cars that many of us had never seen before. Over $1000 was raised for the National MS Society which was considered a huge success!
Participants and spectators were very generous as were the companies who helped sponsor this event.
We would like to say thank you to the following sponsors for making this car show possible:
Judging for the show was done by each of the participants. Voting cards were provided at registration and the entire group chose the winner in each category. There was such a wide variety of cars that many had a tough time picking their favorite in the style categories.
Thank you to everyone who attended and also to the people who volunteered their time to help make this a success. I also wanted to say thank you to Bishop for taking all of these great photos.
The gallery at the bottom of this article contains photos of every car that entered the show.
Here are links to photographers that helped cover the show (will be updated as other coverage is found):
