To many, the term “car show” comes with an air of exclusivity. Whether by make, model, or era, it’s common for shows to cater to a specific theme.

But that’s not what Eric Berge had in mind when he resurrected the Magnolia Village Car Show more than a decade ago.

For entrants, all it takes is a $20 entry fee (which goes directly to Northwest Harvest) and a love for automobiles.

“If you have a car that you’re passionate for, that you’re fixing up, [this is] a chance to bring it out of the garage and put it on display, to show your neighbors what you’re doing,” he said.

That opportunity comes again this Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., as the 11th annual show takes over the Village.

“It’s a real good atmosphere,” said Berge, who owns Werner’s Crash Shop in lower Queen Anne (710 Taylor Ave. N.). “It seems like everybody’s really having a good time.”

With the show open to all types of vehicles, the only certainty is in the wide cross-section of cars on display.

“We’re not limiting ourselves to muscle cars or certain year Chevrolet or Mercedes, we’re leaving it open to whatever you’re into,” he said.

Berge wanted the show to remain accessible to as many as possible. That also means no judging, which he said can breed animosity and hard feelings.

“I just didn’t want to make it so it would exclude anybody,” he said.

Beyond the wide range of vehicles expected, there’s also something special in store for this year’s event. Wayne King is slated to bring his pair of 1960s vintage top fuel dragsters, which, while no longer legal to race, will be fired up to mark the noon hour.

And as in year’s past, the Sunday car show will be preceded by the Magnolia Car Cruise on Saturday evening, sponsored by PROVA Motorsports. That event begins at 4 p.m. on the west side of Magnolia Boulevard at Montavista Place, and drives along many of the main neighborhood arterials (including Magnolia Village) before finishing at PROVA (4022 23rd Ave. W.), where a BBQ awaits the participants.
