The 2014 Show is Almost Here

Thats right!  The 2014 American Reflections car show in Moxee Park is almost here, and it will prove to be one of the best shows ever!  The date is set for May 18th this year.  We are gearing up for it right now.  The invitations are going out as this blog is being created.  We hope for good weather this year (keep your fingers crossed) and even more excitement than in the past.

For those of you that have not been to the show before or have had the opportlunity to enter your prized possession in a show like this here are a few of the details.....

We are an "Open Show" which means that anyone can enter their vehicle.  If you have a 1923 model T, you're welcome to enter.  If you have a 2014 Chevy, Ford, Dodge or anything in between, you're welcome to enter.  No matter if your vehicle is stock, modified, custom, classic, hot rod, old, new, blue, red, green, white, black or purple, you are welcome to show it off.  It can be a car, truck motorcycle, bicycle, Tuner, Lowrider or 4X4, domestic or foreign,we don't care.  We have them all covered.  We give out about 80 trophies in more than 22 classes.  What it boils down to is if you are proud of it and want to show it off, this is the time and place.

The Moxee Park (where the show is held) is a beautiful setting for a car show.  There is acres of grass, handy restrooms and covered areas for picnics and/or car shows.  If you like shade there are plenty of trees.  We come in with food vendors, merchandise vendors, music, trophies, prizes, raffle items, give-a-ways, dash plaques, games and fun for the day.  This is something that you really don't want to miss.
Pre-register your vehicle before May 10th for just $15.00.  After May 10th and the day of the show the registration is $20.00.  Did I tell you that spectators are always admitted free?

In the days leading up to the show several things will also be happening.  On May 16th this year, Hot Rods and Harleys will be starting up and will continue every Friday from 6PM to 9PM at McDonalds on 40th Ave and River Road here in Yakima.  This is a place where all of us car people (motorcycle people too) go to unwind and show off our rides every week.  It also gives us a venue to talk about and sign up people for the American Reflections Cruise the next day, May 17th.  This cruise is held in conjunction with our show and gives people another way of signing up for the show in advance.  More details on the cruise to come.

O.K., for those of you that are interested, I am posting 3 pictures on this page.  The first is of our registration page. Simply copy it to your computer, print it out and send it in to our post office box for advance registration to the show. You will in turn receive a card in the mail with your registration number to be presented at the show.  The second picture I will post is one that was taken at last years show, just to give you an idea of what to look for and get a feeling of the excitement we generate at the show.  The third will be a picture of the 2014 dash plaque that I have designed.  I think it's pretty good looking.  Everyone who registers for the show will get one.

Don't let me get away with out talking about the charities that we suppor with the proceeds from the show. Everything you spend at our show goes for a good cause. We support the Yakima Veterans Food Bank, We also give money to the Make A Wish Foundation and to Yakima's own Camp Primetime which is a summer camp for children who are seriously ill or developmentally disabled and their families. This comes after the show. Before the show, we are always looking for sponsors who can donate to help buy trophies, prizes, offer give-away items or help fill goodie bags. If you are interested in becoming a part of this show or helping out with sponsorship, please e-mail me at We have both local and internet sponsors who are talked about at the show.
