Once again the Maple Valley Street Rats Car Club will be showing up on the shores of beautiful Lake Wilderness for the Maple Valley Days show. The gates will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 8. As in the past, the street to Lake Wilderness Park will be closed at 9 a.m., so plan to be there early. We accept only classic & hot rods 1976 and older. No 4x4’s or motorcycles. Entrance fee at the gate is $20.00. We also ask that you bring non-perishable food items to donate to the local food bank (including baby food). Over the years, this show keeps getting better and better with great music, raffles, trivia prizes and trophies. Our trophies are hand made from recycled car parts. These trophies are extremely unique and noted throughout Western Washington. These trophies are designed and made by one of our very own members.
The Maple Valley Street Rats is a spin-off from the original Tahoma High School Street Rats. The name “street rats” came from street rods plus the nickname of the big block Chevrolet engine. The idea for the Maple Valley Street Rats started as an effort to generate financial scholarships to deserving students going to automotive schools following high school. We are proud to announce that we have raised approximately $55,000 to contribute to the scholarship program. This year we are awarding $4,000 to two deserving local students. Both of these students will be available for you to meet at our show. We accept non-perishable food and baby food that we in turn donate to the Maple Valley Food Bank. We are also very proud to state that we have collected in excess of 50,000 pounds of food over the past years. This club is made up of 70 members who are dedicated to the preservation of vehicles 1976 or older as well as to the generation of scholarships to worthy recipients attending automotive courses.
