LeMay Museum Presents the 29th Annual LeMay Car Show & Auction
The event will take place at both Marymount Academy and the LeMay Estate
(Tacoma, WA) – The LeMay Museum will hold the 29th Annual LeMay Car Show & Auction at Marymount Academy and the LeMay Homestead on Saturday, August 26th, 2006 from 9am to 5pm. Visitors can see over 800 vintage, classic and specialty automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles from the LeMay Collection at Marymount Academy and the LeMay Homestead, plus hundreds of local collector cars.
The event was started by Harold and Nancy LeMay 29 years ago and has become an annual fundraiser for the LeMay Museum. Nancy LeMay recalls her and Harold LeMay receiving requests from friends and a couple of car clubs to show their cars. “We bought some donuts, made some coffee and said sure come on over” Nancy claims. What began as an annual get together has now grown into an annual event with people flocking in the thousands from as far as Japan, Australia, and Italy to see the amazing LeMay collection. Last year the Museum sold over 5,500 tickets for the event and the Museum expects to double that this year.
In addition to the cars, there will be automobile-related vendor displays, an auction that will be hosted by Mathers Inc. Auctioneers featuring restorable cars and parts, a Kasey Kahne NASCAR display, food, music, and more. Entry donations start at $10 for adults, $20 for a family of 4, $5 for children under 12, and $5 for active military. Free parking will be available offsite with free shuttle bus transportation from parking lots and between Marymount Academy and the LeMay Estate.
