I just wanted to post up an open invite, there's a BIG car show that takes over my neighborhood once a year with all sorts of cars.
everything from classic hotrods to tesla's, last year they even fired up a hydroplane.

If you're taking the I-5 through Seattle, get off on the 85th St exit (near Northgate) and head west about a mile where you'll run into the Greenwood carshow, it's impossible to miss and stretches for miles up and down Greenwood.
There's lots of good food and the variety of cars is amazing !

the little skulls on the rear axle are the tail-lights and yes, the shifter does stick up several inches above the roof, it is a real monstrous tire smoking cartoon vehicle...
