Drive, They Said

If you want to see the future of downtown Tacoma (or at least an exciting part of it), head to Spanaway this weekend.

It's time for the 29th Annual LeMay Car Show and Auction this Saturday. Attendees will be able to see 800 vintage, classic and specialty automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles from the LeMay Collection at Marymount Academy and the LeMay Estate, plus hundreds of local collector cars. By the way, this year visitors will also be able to view the North American Eagle vehicle in which some local racers hope to break the world land speed record by achieving Mach 1.05 or better.

The LeMay car collection--esteemed the largest privately owned collection of automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, other vehicles and related memorabilia in the world by the Guiness Book of Records--is the nucleus for a major new museum. The late Harold LeMay amassed in excess of 3,000 vehicles and thousands of artifacts. The Collection, recognized by many as a national treasure, represents the American experience with the automobile as it spans the 20th century and features virtually every American make as well as numerous foreign cars.

It's not too early to begin an acquaintancee with this fabulous collection and get to know more about America's Car Museum before its move to Tacoma's Dome District. See you at the show!
