When Mike Montgomery was looking for a spot for the Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame to host a fundraising car show, he knew that XXX marks the spot.
Unfortunately, Issaquah’s XXX Rootbeer Drive-in, which started out with just a handful of car shows when owner José Enciso took over the business in 1999, now boasts a schedule filled to the brim with 35 of the year’s 52 weekends already spoken for.

José Enciso has owned The XXX Rootbeer Drive-in since 1999, and it has turned out to be one of the most popular destinations for car buffs to gather.
Even though his growing schedule of shows is filled throughout the year with classic car clubs, and his own garage is packed with a variety of classic rides, Enciso knows the future of car clubs belongs to the newest aficionados who drive imports.
Enciso said The XXX became a destination for spontaneous meetups, or flash mobs, of like car owners, especially car clubs for imports, like Hondas and Subarus.
