ARLINGTON — Car enthusiasts will soon be able to get their automotive salivary glands going.

The Sittin Pretti “Summer Slam” car show, which spotlights slammed mini-trucks and sport compact cars, will be available for motor-heads and their families at the Arlington Municipal Airport on Aug. 21.

The show, organized in part by Sittin Pretti President Shawn Altermott, who grew up in Marysville, saw about 200 vehicles and between 400-500 spectators last year.

“It’s a great location, with plenty of room for us to expand,” Altermott said. “You couldn’t ask for any better.”

Sittin Pretti is a mini-truck club based out of Seattle. In addition to the Arlington event, the organization hosts car shows in California and Oregon throughout the summer.

The Arlington show will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the airport’s west entrance.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Arlington Boys & Girls Club.

Car owners can pre-register their rides by visiting www.sittinpretti.com or register that day.
