Welcome

The Pacific Northwest Region of the Classic Car Club of America is one of the most active purveyors of information on the greatest automobiles ever built.  Please join us for an event or come to our meetings held on the first Wednesday of every month, 6 pm at Club Auto in Kirkland.

LeMay Museum Status

As most of us locals know, there is a lot of activity down in the City of Destiny. The LeMay Museum construction is pretty much at a close and the final preparation for the Grand Opening Weekend (June 2, 3 and 4) is underway. When this first phase opens for business, it will be the largest car museum in the US and the third largest in the world. Be sure to head on over to the site next to the Tacoma Dome, either for the invitation-Gala on the 2nd of June or for the two days following, where invitations to a collection of cars from the Pacific Northwest will grace the showfield and the museum will be formally open.

This is a treasure that the Pacific Northwest Region of the CCCA heartily endorses!  See you in Tacoma.

Chateau Ste Michelle Staycation

The Ste Michelle Winery played host to all those in the area who opted to stay home over the Memorial Day weekend, but couldn’t quite face up to doing yardwork for three days straight.  The PNR-CCCA was represented by 8 classics, 10 cars by my count (although I will admit to a glass of wine or two, so the numbers could be off.  To see pictures of this event, take a look at the following compilations.  And stay tuned to similar events in the near future, such as our Fathers’ Day gathering at the Ballard Locks for food, fun and music – plus the Lynnwood-based charity event on the 24th.  The weather held up on this particular Sunday, and I was able to fill my wine cellar!

Director’s Message

Hitting the Road

I am willing to bet that the snow is now distant in everyone’s memory and the rain is showing signs of giving us respite.  It is time to hit the road.  With three events already complete, we look forward to a series of activities over the Spring, the Summer and beyond.  Join us for one of these motoring classics.

2010 Vin d’Elegance

2010 Pacific Northwest CARavan

In June 2010, an intrepid group of classic car enthusiasts made a grand circle starting in Kirkland’s waterfront and moving through Sun Mountain near Winthrop, on to Kelowna, winding our way West to Whistler and ending in the ever-charming Victoria BC.
