Where abouts is it? Last yr I think it was at a diff location in Kent somewhere. Before it was always at the Northgate Mall area. I met Alma Gates there a few yrs back. I didn't know I was gonna meet her and of course didn't bring a camera. As for someones question of what they got...a little bit of everything. Even a bunch of demo vehicles from diff manufacturers will be there. Being I haven't gone past few yrs, that could have changed due to the economy.

I had to work this sale back in the day when I worked at cartoys, to be honest the deals are not bad but its on the old stuff nothing really new. MTX use to have some good deals but cartoys dropped them :crap: but you can get some good deals on the smaller JBL Crown series amps and entry level in-dashes:)

I was travelling all day yesterday and while on the plane thought I should see who's going, then I finally got a chance to get online today and see y'all are already thinking the same thing. But I'll be there Sunday afternoon, after I take the kids to Husky Picture Day. Might go Saturday afternoon for the VW show if I head over the mountains early enough. Not participating in anything, just viewing and seeing what I shouldn't be buying right now. Are y'all meeting up somewhere? I'd like to see what you guys are thinking of for future shows and stuff and actually meet some of you guys in person.

Where abouts is it? Last yr I think it was at a diff location in Kent somewhere. Before it was always at the Northgate Mall area. I met Alma Gates there a few yrs back. I didn't know I was gonna meet her and of course didn't bring a camera.

When Alma was at the Northgate tent sale (2005), I judged her Bronco for SQ, after Gary Biggs changed it from SPL to SQ. I also met Mad Mike from Pimp My Ride there, and we talked a little about the cars competing. But the coolest part was a long time ago (1998 at the Southcenter Magnolia) I had gotten a poster of the Bronco and got Alma to sign it. Then I met her at the sale in 2005, and afterwards, me, Alma, and some guys from Team Shadow (BC) went out to dinner. Team Shadow invited her up to BC for their show the next day, so in the morning, I picked her up at her hotel on my way up since I was also judging that show (and also took her back afterwards). I also took my poster from 98 and had her sign it again, so now I have a big poster of the Bronco with 2 signatures from Alma. I also saw her again at the 2005 IASCA finals and then again at the 2006 Car Toys sale when they moved to Southcenter. I think she completely retired from car audio after that summer.

Your right...I think she retired from car audio because things weren't going in her direction rather in the manufacturers direction...correct me if I'm wrong. But was still a surprise to see her there. Also saw those JBL 6000 watt amps in person. Made me look like a midget, those things were so dam huge. Since I can't make the tent sale, there's gotta be another meetup sometime next month or so...before summer is gone and the snow hits us again. For sure I'll have some time off then so should be easier.

Was the IASCA judge Phil Nease? Last time I saw him, he was the Focal rep at the 06 or 07 tent sale. But I know he was the substitute SQ judge for a BC show in June when I had to back out so that I could go judge the Pioneer Build-off in Long Beach.

That's one sick SUV...with the Orion gear. Is it a Tahoe or Suburban? And the paint color is trippin' too. Someone has money out there!!

It was a Suburban. I was not impressed by the sale. That was the quickest I've ever walked through the tent sale - nothing really to stop to look at and it seemed smaller inside.

Same here - it's good to put a face behind who is typing. I'm looking into buying an RTA with bright eyes for a complete show set up - saving up the money first and also finding out the best deal.

But the next closest show is Sept 13 in Coquitlam BC. Then the next after that is Chilliwack on Sept 20. Penticton is this Sunday, but it's really far from Seattle. But the Penticton show I think has more formats - IASCA, maybe dbdrag and USAC, maybe more. The other 2 shows are IASCA only.
