The weather around Tacoma is always predictable. If there is an outdoor festival planned, there will be rain in the forecast.
Such was the case for the eighth annual Hotrod-A-Rama Friday, Aug. 6-Saturday, Aug. 8 at The Swiss in Tacoma.
Rows of pre-1965 cars, from restored to towed-in jalopies and custom jobs filled the block around The Swiss alongside car-related vendors and pinup models with tattoos, hot pants and poodle skirts.
