2013 Les Schwab Motorfest Car Show

Finally, after a couple months, here are our pics from the Les Schwab Motorfest 2013 car show! It was a wonderful show this year, despite a lower turnout of vehicles compared to previous years. It was also the 60th anniversary of Corvettes, so there was quite the showing of the car that’s near and dear to many car lovers.

Here are some pics from the 2013 Les Schwab Motorfest, aka Northwest Motorfest:

The car show before the car show: Les Schwab Motorfest 2013

As tradition, we always spend a good deal of time in the parking lot before we get into the fairgrounds to the real show. We always park in the back and admire those cars that don’t enter but really should have. Here are a few of our favorites:

We’ll have more posts coming soon from the actual car show, video the Holeshot Nationals and more!

Veterans Fund Run Car Show at Idaho State Veterans Home

We have a good friend Bob who works across Main Street at NAPA Auto Parts where The Shop is a frequent visitor. We told us about an upcoming car show we hadn’t been to yet called the Veterans Fund Run on May 18. Although we didn’t have the Buick quite ready to enter, we stopped by the Idaho State Veterans Home to say hi to Bob (who was helping with his car club that ran the show) and take a look at the classics that showed up.

They had a great showing this year, with almost 200 cars in a variety of years and makes. And it was great to see the veterans at the peruse the cars to choose their favorites. The Best of Show award is chosen by the veterans.

Here are a few of the photos we took at the show. Excuse the many shots of the Buicks in attendance — we are a bit partial.
