Sunday, July 16, 2023

VW Beetles all in a row.
The Cascade Kombis Vintage Volkswagen Club hosted Saturday's VW car show on the Shoreline Community College campus. 

Vehicles have been lovingly restored to a condition better than the original
On Saturday, July 15, a large crowd enjoyed checking out the premiere vintage VW show in the Pacific Northwest!

More than one owner picked up their van in Germany and traveled Europe
or bought their van in the U.S. and followed the Grateful Dead around the country
This event has been staged for 40 years, primarily at the College by the Cascade Kombis vintage VW club, a non-profit organization.

Waitresses on roller skates brought your order to your car
Visitors enjoyed the cool vintage cars, campers and busses, picked up gear at the swap, and won some amazing prizes for $1!

$1 tickets paid off in big prizes

The show concluded with the awards presentation and grand prize raffle. Read the full show details here.

*Original info in the caption was not quite correct. Here's the info: Older VWs didn't have a fuel gauge, only a fuel petcock. If you were low on fuel ( = engine cutting out) you had to switch the petcock to the 'reserve' position, while you were driving. The lever was located below the dashboard.
