11th Annual Rakers Car Show: June 28, 2014
Enjoy the thrill of classic cars in Port Townsend on June 28, 2014 at the 11th Annual Rakers Car show!
The Rakers Car Club was started in 1957 by Port Townsend High School students Vic Olson, Gary Ried, Glen Benton and Jim Seastone. Raker members usually hung out at Joe’s Corral or CUSAKS, both of which were eatery stops along the normal cruising circuit. Club meetings were usually held at the designated local quarter-mile strip out by West Hastings or, on occasion, in a building on Washington Street, the site of the Bishop Victorian Hotel.
The Rakers Car Club disbanded in the late 1960s, when many members had either gone into the military, moved away, married, or started a family. By April 2001, the original members had finished raising their families, retired, or rekindled their passion for cars — and the Rakers Car Club was reborn. Membership is currently approaching 100 with members located in Washington and Idaho.
Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles from all years welcome. Dash Plaques for first 175 entrants and Trophies Awards in many categories.
