In the Beginning
The Gig Harbor Cruisers Automotive club had its beginnings with two couples from Gig Harbor with a few really cool rides who kept running into each other at cars shows all over Western Washington. Wondering why there was not a car club in their hometown they reached out to three other local car lovers, also with with really cool rides. All invested funds and time to get the club up and rolling. In February 1997 The Gig Harbor Cruisers was born. Within the first six months, the club had over 125 memberships with a cumulative vintage vehicle ownership numbering over 300, formed a scholarship committee and was planning its first major car show for July at the Tacoma Narrows Airport to fund the scholarships. The club has kept a consistent membership base of over 100 memberships ever since along and has produced Cruise the Narrows Car show annually.
