    Orting Poker run

    I just got back from Orting and took in their annual car show...was pretty good especally for such a small town. Basically it is a Poker Run put on by the Kingsmen 500. It starts in Tacoma where you register and ends up in Orting. I was just a spectator but might try it next prize is $500. Down side is the first car leave Tacoma at 7 AM and the last about 9 AM so if you are coming from very far away it could be an early morning.

    As normal not many falcons and such. There was a decent 65 Ranchero that was for sale and a really sweet 1964 Sprint...nice orange paint. Hung around for awhile to see if the owner would show up but no luck. On a side street there was an outstanding 1956(?) black ranchero. Did not get a good close up look but from a distance the paint looked outstanding.

    The Poker Run is an annual event and looked to be a lot of cars there were about 300 so it was a nice size show. You have to be in the poker run to show a car but next year if it fits into the schedule it is a nice show just to go to and observe.
