Two can’t-be-missed” events are on tap at America’s Car Museum…

First, we’re “Calling All Cars” to our Pre-Inaugural Collector Car Showcase, Aug. 7, in Fife, Washington

Pre-Inaugural Collector Car Showcase (ACM Car Show)The judged car show is open to the first 120 entrants and will feature 12 classes, ranging from stock antique cars through 1931 to present-day sports cars, as well as customs, modifieds and hot rods. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Car collectors, clubs and enthusiasts can come together at ACM headquarters for a day of pure automotive fun,” said Sandy Scott, ACM events manager. “This is ACM’s third car show and we always get an eclectic group of eye-catching cars.”

There’s no cost to enter a vehicle in the show, but early sign-up is suggested since space is limited and there will be no day-of-show registration. Spectator admission is $10 for adults;  $5 for active military and children ages 6-12; ACM members get in free. For more details on the event, contact Sandi Scott at 253/779-8490 or sandy.scott@lemaymuseum.org. Visit the event page to find out more information about the show and to download the registration form to participate.

Next, our “Hard Hat & High Heels” preview party and gala will light up the night Saturday, September 24 at the new LeMay Museum

Trade your top hat for a hard hat, your formal footwear for construction boots and join the fun at our exclusive “Hard Hat & High Heels” preview party. It will be a first person peek at the new museum’s stunning interior spaces and exhibit galleries.

Like our members and friends, LeMay America’s Car Museum knows how to have a good time. When we host a gala, you can count on two things. It is not going to be ‘same old ~ same old’ and it is going to be tons of fun. In the spirit of the evening, you’re encouraged to come decked out in your best “construction chic,” a blend of formal wear and work duds. Get creative with a decorated hard hat. Express yourself with a pair of embellished boots… and who’s to say Givenchy and a tool belt weren’t meant for one another… certainly not we! In short, have some fun with it. It’s what the party is all about.

Prices start at $175 per person and corporate tables and patron sponsorships are available.
