Chipman & Taylor Classic Car Show - It's Grrrrrr 8
By Annette Barton
Pullman, Washington - the 30th, yes THIRTIETH, Annual Chipman and Taylor Classic Car Show was heavily attended in the May 12 sunshine on the sales lot of Chipman & Taylor Chevrolet. We are pleased to have been attending the majority of these 30 shows and even more pleased to say that most of the Chipman and Taylor team have become our friends over those years!
ALL entries have always been welcomed from Hot Rods to Pedal Cars, Motorcycles to Imports, Military vehicles to Farm implements. It is a huge undertaking to move the sales lot cars to another location and then back after the show, so I want to give huge kudos to Tom Taylor, Fran Arend and their team for pulling it off once again. Tom has been the driving force behind this great show and he provides Dash Plaques, T-shirts, hot dogs and Coca Cola for free and no entry fee.
Giveaways for parts, service or detailing have also been raffled off. Over the years the show has brought in more and more sponsors, so Tom was able to provide trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in 17 different classes and large People's Choice and Best of Show trophies.
An amazing turnout for the 30th show, not the largest ever, but really close at over 175 entries! During the show the band, Bare Wires, performed classic rock n roll for the hundreds of people filing through looking at the classics. I would like to recognize the sponsors for this great show, first and foremost Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame Inductee Tom Taylor and Fran Amend of Chipman & Taylor Chevrolet for their dedication to the classic car community. Other sponsors include, Jones Truck and Implement, HUB International, Pullman Les Schwab Tire, Heritage Wheel and Tire, Washington Trust Bank, Zeppoz, Dissmores IGA, Mundy's Machine and Welding and King Beverage. Thank you all for making this show a success year after year under all weather conditions.
The quality of classic cars and trucks has always been exceptional and the car clubs who attend are beyond reproach including the Dukes, the Comancheros, Old Irons, Crankers Car Club,Top Hat Cruisers, Knuckle Skrape'Rs traditional hot rods, Early Ford V-8's, LC Valley Cruisers. So many wonderful people and we thank you!
