Due to so many members attending the Shasta meet, there will be no general NWDE meeting this month. See you next month!
Saturday 21 June 2014, NWDE will be hosting its annual Clothing Optional AutoX.
As in past years this promises to be a fun, successful
weekend of hosting the WWSCC Championship
Where: Sanderson Field in Shelton, Washington
We named it Clothing Optional as a play on the pronunciation of our club’s acronym: NWDE = “nude”. Drivers are, however, expected to wear clothing in public.
Details can be found at http://www.wwscc.org/
It’s a big shout out to Joe E, Ted and Dave F who all were instrumental in bringing up “baby” to speed, literally. Over the weekend, Joe and Ted did a massive roadster rear end swap to my ’64 pu rear end. WHAT A CHANGE. I don’t have to be in the slow lane doing 50 -53 mph. I can easily cruise at 60 mph all the way up to 70 mph.
On Sunday I even drove it over 400 miles to Canby, Or. The most miles I put on it in 30 years. I even kept up with Ted and Don A. I won 3rd place in my division after a late arrrival and after the voting started.
I received a number of “looks” and thumbs up on the freeway during the trip which I haven’t received on the freeway since the speed limit was 55mph. I can honestly say “trucking is fun again”. A big shout out to all NWDE members throughout the years who gave me support, advice and parts to make this happen.
All I can say is: KEEP ON TRUCKING!
The JUNE NWDE meeting will be one day earlier on Thursday June 19th. Same time 6:30 meet and greet. Meeting at 7:30 Same location in Renton – Yankee Diner.
Our annual autocross fundraiser is on Sat June 21st in Shelton so we didn’t want back to back events. Come to both and support your local Datsun club
A few photos of our Friday night meeting. There will be more club photos to come.
Take care, Tana
Gordon decided to give Jack K a poster that had been hanging in his garage and Jack really liked it.
It’s official: NWDE AutoX moved to Saturday, June 21.
There are still rooms available at the Shelton Inn for Friday, June 20.
Start thinking about how you can help. Remember, this is the club’s main fund raiser, which funds reimbursement of entry fees such as to the Greenwood Car Show and SOVREN Pacific NW Historics.
