Greenwood Car Show today in Seattle

It was really nice. Being from the Detroit area car shows have been a part of my life since I was a little kid, but unfortunately I haven't been able to make it to any for several years. Lots of great cars both restored to factory condition, modded in a way that fit into the time period, then sort of tricked out and modified as far as you can go. All manner of nice rides. Took place in a sort of chi chi section of town, where I'm sure the presence of parts of the unwashed masses wasn't appreciate by the yuppies used to dining at places with names like McLaughlin's Whimsical Party and Happiness Cafe and Bakery. Strangely enough, didn't see a lot of the tough looking semi-hipster folks who sport sleaved tattooed arms. Maybe I just missed them. Or maybe they're just hanging out in West Seattle acting bad ass instead of actually going to an event where there are real working people hanging out. Saw 1%er bikers there. They, in general, had less tattoos than the sleaved folks.
