What's New This Year
For the last 21 years the show has been labled a "Classic Car Show". Moving forward this year we are taking a step in a new direction and labeling the car show as "Mild to Wild".
We are opening the show up to Exotics and Imports while keeping the nostalgic and iconic cars of the past, plus today's cars that pay homage to the vintage and classics.
We are also introducing a new part to the car show this year called "Motorcycle Alley" between S Tacoma Way and S Puget Sound Ave on 54th Street, brought to you in part by Destination Harley Davidson.
Judging and Awards will be slightly different than in years past as well. We are introducing the top 25 awards this year (no catagories) with the top dog award being "Best of Show". The show will be judged by the Blacktop Rebels Car Club of Tacoma.
$2.00 of Entry Fee Goes to STBDA Food Banks

Rock n Roll Magic has been getting people out of their chairs and onto the dance floor for over 25 years in the Puget Sound area. They have set attendance records for the longest running house gigs for years. Rock n Roll Magic is a five member group fronted by Rick Adams & Susie Miner. Rick is a Spanish /American born to rock from San Diego, California on lead guitar and lead vocals. Susie is the funny ditsy blonde also from San Diego, California on percussions and vocals. Rick & Susie surround themselves with three of the most extraordinary musicians to round out the Rock n Roll Magic "wall of sound". The heart of our rhythm section is Rickie Heinzman on Drums and when Eric Bauer adds his bright and funky bass grooves to the drum mix you can't sit still. Mark Harris and Eric Bauer are also lead and backup singers. Sonny Schaaf is our master of the keyboards and our musical director.
