Sittin Pretti returns to Arlington Airport Aug. 17

Marysville's David Wade, who appeared at last year's Sittin Pretti Summer Slam car show, invested so much money in his 1931 Ford Model A that its pin-stripes and engine were literally 'money green.'

ARLINGTON — The Arlington Airport will again serve as the site for the Sittin Pretti Summer Slam car show, presented by Toyo Tires, on Saturday, Aug. 17.

The gates will open at 7 a.m., and starting at 10 a.m., spectators of all ages will be welcome to check out the hundreds of compact cars and mini-trucks that will be on display.

The Seattle-based Sittin Pretti mini-truck club started building and driving its rigs in 1989, and claims to host one of the largest mini-truck shows in the Pacific Northwest.

Spectators can swing by through the airport’s west entrance, and proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Arlington Boys & Girls Club on the east side of the airport.

There will be no pre-registration this year, so car owners can register the day of the event for $30 at the gate. T-shirts, sweatshirts and raffle tickets will all be sold on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the show itself.

Those interested in sponsoring this year’s event should email, while those who would like to be on the event’s schedule should email
