Seattle City Light employees organized a classic car show and barbecue to raise money for Project Share.

Seattle City Light employees raised $2,400 for Project Share when they held a classic car show and barbecue Aug. 1 at the South Service Center.

The event brought together 33 vehicles, including a vintage camping trailer and a restored fire truck. Our Fleets office sponsored the event, and showcased City Light’s all-electric Nissan Leaf and the latest fuel-efficient line truck.

In addition to food and prizes, the Blue Angels did a fly over. (OK, that was a Seafair thing, but our timing was excellent.)

Attendees raised $2,400, which will assist City Light customers in financial crisis in paying their electric bills.

Everybody loves a little red Corvette.

The top was down and the hood was up to show off this beauty.

Old trucks never die, they just go to car shows.
