Diversity Divine Auto Show a success


Motorheads were able to share their love of cars at the Diversity Divine Auto Show over the weekend. 

"The show went great!" Sam Hsieh, who hosted the event on Saturday on his Main Street property called Coulee Plaza. "I am so glad that people were willing to come out and participate despite the unknown weather. It was a gathering of car lovers and enthusiasts, family and friends. We all enjoyed the company of each other and chatted up anything and everything about cars. The thing I love most about this show is that it doesn't matter if you have a Japanese import or a classic domestic hot rod, we have it all. It's about diversity and inclusion. And we know that the kids absolutely loved it." 

 The event took place simultaneously with Koulee Kids Fest, and kids chose a replica 1932 Ford Mini Deuce Coupe owned by Buzzy LeBret as their favorite car.

LaBret's 1969 Ford Mustang Mach-1 won Mayor Paul Townsend's choice award as well as the best-in-show award at the event.

Police Chief John Tufts chose Trent Turner's 1968 Ford Mustang for the police chief's choice award. Fire Chief Ryan Fish chose the 1966 Ford Mustang owned by Tauryn Sharr for the fire chief's choice award.

"This is what it's all about," Hsieh said, "getting the community together and having fun. We hope it'll inspire more people to join us as we can't wait to do it again next year!"

Hsieh said that the Ford Mustangs at the event "definitely stole the show!"

Chris Holman, who partnered with Hsieh in putting on the event, said that "this is a show we're going to do every year, and add to it every year and make it bigger and better."

"Grand Coulee, hang on, because next year is going to be a hell of a show," he said, adding that he already has things in the works for next year's show.
