  • Wings-N-Wheels Benefit Car Show

    Derrick Lether, an officer with the Monroe Police Department, invites all SAMOAns to Wings-N-Wheels, a car and airplane show at First Air Field in Monroe (13820 179th Ave SE).

    It's happening Saturday, September 10, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. There will be judged classes with awards going to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers. The cost to enter your vehicle is only a $10 donation if you register before the show and $20 if you register the day of the event. All proceeds go directly to benefit Special Olympics Washington.

    It’s a family oriented show and Officer Lethers says it should be a lot of fun, with a car/truck/motorcycle show and shine, airplane show and shine, bouncy houses, food, music, vendors, raffles & giveaways, awards, a beer garden, and a variety of different games and contests.

    If nothing else, you'll enjoy a great drive up the Snoqualmie Valley and back.

    For a "First Annual" event, it came off pretty well and was certainly different from any I've attended before...once you add in the dozen airplanes and the throw-the-sack-of-flour-from-an-airplane-into-a- circle-on-the-runway competition. I swear some of the planes were low enough going over our heads that we felt like ducking!
    Not unsuspected, but Dan and I were the only Minis with Dan's pickup taking the top prize in the foreign car category. Not sure the Lamborghini owner would have agreed!

      You never quite know what might turn up at these small-scale, community shows. This event had about 50 cars and a dozen or so small planes -- and everyone got a chance to show their stuff.

      Here's a look at some of Saturday's goings-on.







      More to come.

        Full-fendered friends.



        The show card said this '33 tudor was built by Andy Brizio. Younger members may not remember "The Rodfather," but he was a big name in hot rodding during the 70s.



        Yup. And that's a Porsche sitting next to it.

        A few more to come.

          Of course, there were a couple of Minis at the show, too.



          And small private planes that dated back as far as 1947.



          They got a lot of attention and actually provided quite a bit of excitement.



          It was a fun (and very different) show.

            I like that last picture. It shows Dan's new hobby -- model planes. The picture shows one taking off of the rear of his pickup.
