2011 Mild to Wild Car Show Kicks off the Northwest Season

Mild to Wild Car Show , Puyallup,WA.
We don’t have the weather like California , so when we have a custom car show this early in the year is kinda of a bonus!

The Mild to Wild Car Show has been around for 20 years and recently return to the Puyallup Fair and Events Center after many years at the Tacoma Dome. The was actually the car show’s original starting location back in 1989. This year it was inside three of the buildings at the Fair grounds, unlike the Gooduys Show that takes over the inside and outside of the complex. Not a real big show, but had some really cool customs from the northwest.
