This weekend, gorgeous cars, boats, and motorcycles from near and far will be displayed at the Spokane Auto Boat Speed Show. This is a rare chance to see one-of-a-kind custom dream vehicles, perfectly restored classics, and race cars/boats gathered indoors in Washington. You can even meet the people who build the cars. Look for John D’Agostino, who built a custom on a new episode of Speed Channel’s Car Warriors that will air later this year, and pin-up model Amy Delacroux. The Spokannibals Roller Derby girls will be at the show, and the bands In-flux; Ricks Brothers; and Gorilla, Rabbit, and Chicken will play Friday and Saturday.
Be sure to check out the “Kardiac 500”1967 Shelby GT500 from Quesnel, BC, Canada, built by JF Kustoms, which made it in the GREAT 8 in Detroit, and the “TIMELESS” 1932 Ford all steel body roadster, both of which have been showcased on the ISCA circuit all over the U.S.
In addition to show awards, there are two fun contests for people attending the show: a 50s/60s glamour themed pin-up contest Friday at 7:00 p.m. (first place wins $300) and a model car contest (bring your model car, for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 509-325-3545).

Hours are Friday noon to 10:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. The awards show starts at 6:00 p.m. Sunday night.
