Default Aug 2-5 Saleen Show in Tacoma Washington

2012 Saleen NATIONALS
Tacoma Washington

Hosted by the Northwest Region
August 2-5, 2012

The 2012 Saleen NATIONALS will be held at the LeMay - America's Car Museum in Tacoma Washington
mark your calendars now - this is a must attend celebration and event for 2012.

Owners & enthusiast will travel across the country and from around the world to attend, show off a little, renew old and make new friendships and have some fun. After all that's what this club is all about and is reflected in our motto - "Fun, Friendships and Saleens".

Tacoma's story spans more than two centuries from the time Captain George Vancouver anchored off Tacoma's north shore in 1792. In 1870, Tacoma's natural deep-water port became an attraction that the Northern Pacific Railroad couldn't pass up, when it made Tacoma a stop on its transcontinental line. The railroad platted "New Tacoma" and the growth of the city began.

Old Tacoma and New Tacoma merged in 1884 and incorporated as Tacoma. By 1890, the population reached 36,000 people. Sawmills, coal mines, flour mills and a smelter turned raw materials into exportable goods. Tacoma continues to make use of both its land and sea resources. It is home to the Port of Tacoma, the seventh-largest container port in the United States, and it is within 20 miles of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and 36 miles of the city of Seattle.

Today Tacoma is a thriving city with a revitalized downtown that caters to residents and visitors alike with its shopping, dining, theaters and award-winning arts and architecture. For more info about Tacoma, WA Please visit the official website Tacoma Washington.

VERY bummed I can't make this!
Rumor has it that a very special attendee will be Phil Frank, designer of the 94+ Saleens and SMS vehicles!
