    Cool Desert Nights - TriCities, WA 6/26/10

    Most of the vehicles at this show are old domestic cars, a few v-dubs, and some tuners. I checked it out this morning before going to work and saw a few good old JNC's. I actually met the owner of this '72 240z a few days ago while on a bike ride with my 5 yr old daughter. He lives a block away from me and is the original owner of the vehicle :mrgreen:
    Spoke to the owner of this '64 Honda S600 right hand drive and he said that it was originally imported to the U.S. in the mid 60's and he is the 2nd owner of the car.
    I've known the owner of this Land Cruiser for a few years and this is the first time I've seen it. They've talked about it but never got into much detail.
    Just saw this old Z but didn't see the owner to talk to him.

    I'm sure there were a few more old Z's there but I had to get to work.

    I still have my '75 Colt in the garage but haven't got to it because of some issues and a pretty bad wreck in my 06 siverado. Now I'm finally ready to get back to work on it and join the few other old j-tins at next year's Cool Desert Nights.

    DAMN! I missed it! I won't be down there until next weekend :? Are there a lot of classic car shows in the Tri-Cities? I was down there visiting family about a month ago, and we saw a 1932 and under roadster club at Columbia Park, other than that I didn't see very many classics. We are planning on moving to the Tri-Cities sometime soon, it would be nice to see some classic J-tin

    There are a few shows in the area but most of them are done. This is the biggest show of the year here. Not many J-tins here but there are a few guys I've met that are into it. Let me know when you move into the area.

    It'll still be a year or two before my family and I move to the Tri-Cities. I'm going to try to convince the company I work for to expand I do data collection and photography for auto dealer websites, and I'm getting into amatuer photography as a side business. That's why I was wondering if there is a big following of J-tin in the area, I might be able to shoot some enthusiasts cars :mrgreen:

    The S600 looks beautiful in that color. Would you say it was more blue or gray?
