Sign-ups continue through Saturday morning for the Sequim Museum & Arts’ Sequim August Days Car Show featuring cars, trucks, and motorcycles from any era.
The show runs 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Aug. 17, at the Sequim High School Athletic Field, 601 N. Sequim Ave., at the intersection of Sequim Avenue and Hendrickson Road. Pre-registration is $12 at www.sequimmuseum.com or by calling Bill Seabolt at 360-670-3810.
Cost the day of the show is $15, with registration opening at 7:30 a.m.
“It’s anything from old to new; no stipulations,” Seabolt said.
“We’re taking any vehicle and we’ve got a lot of motorcycles showing up and different classifications. We’re also expecting a lot of clubs planning to come.”
Proceeds go to continued completion of the museum’s new building at 544 N. Sequim Ave.
Judy Reandeau Stipe, the museum’s executive director, said about 90 percent of proceeds after expenses support finishing displays, landscaping and more projects in and outside of the museum along with supporting continued art and education programs.
Sequim’s new museum is the first in Clallam County in 40 years, she said.
Reandeau Stipe said one of the reasons she continues the car show is to support car collectors.
“The gearheads are some of the most generous people in Sequim,” she said.
“I respectfully call them gearheads because they take nothing and fix it and build it into something so beautiful. We plan to keep it going. It’s a wonderful interaction and estimate about 4,000 people came to previous events.”
The show features music, drawings and more, including a 1 p.m. auction for service station signs from the area.
Reandeau Stipe said fundraising efforts continue to finish the new museum and volunteers are thankful for all the support they’ve received in man hours and in-kind donations.
Following the museum’s car show, they host a barn dance fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 28.
The old museum on Cedar Street tentatively goes to bid in the coming months with a starting bid of $399,000.
