Every event has unexpected surprises. This year we had clear skies and realized a visitor from the south was making their presence known to our photographers! Mt Rainier's stunning backdrop was such a nice treat for the 10th annual event. Thank mother nature for not only cooperating with the weather, but for allowing Mt Rainier to join the show!

A remarkable story which we are honored to have participate in VAW. This 1929 Dodge Brothers Sedan was a barn find from New York and has been in Chris Petersen's family for 25 years. The meticulous care the Petersen family has taken to preserve this piece of America's heritage will captivate you. Thank you Chris for joining us and sharing this remarkable history!!
