Photos & Story by Dave Gibson
Somewhere between 8 and 10 thousand spectators and a field of 500 plus vintage, classic and collectible vehicles took advantage of the perfect (low 80s) weather to enjoy the 11th annual Fenders on Front Street in Issaquah, Washington, June 19, 2016.
While the free car show takes place on Sunday, if you're inclined to be there on Saturday the 18th, you're invited to participate in the Grand Ridge Plaza Cruise - meet for lunch at the Triple XXX Root Beer Drivein, then the Cruise at 2 pm takes you through downtown Issaquah to Blakely Hall, park at Grand Ridge Plaza to shop, have dinner and later, enjoy a movie Sunday morning Front Street reverberates with the rhythmic rumble of precision machinery making massive horsepower. They come from throughout the Northwest, everything from an all electric, super high tech 2016 Tesla Model X SUV to an incredible 1931 Duesenberg Derham convertible sedan.
The action is non-stop, the fun is unparalleled, 8 am till 3pm, closing after the trophy and awards festivities, emceed by the one and only Lance Lambert. Fenders on Front Street's a blast, be there in 2017!
