Scott Morgan of Preston, WA brought his 1961 VW beatle to the Lance Lambert car show on 6/26 at the Triple X Drive-Inn to show his handy work of fitting a 409 V8 engine into the trunk of this 61 VW. This little hummer goes from 0 to 60 in 9.9 seconds and tops out at 135 MPH... not your fathers VW. Every hour at the car show Scott fired up the engine and answered questions for a crowd of 20 to 30 onlookers.

After 55 years Issaquah's Triple XXX Rootbeer Drive-in closes its doors on November 29, 2023. This makes me sad - it was one of my favorite places in Issaquah!!
Above is a 360 photo I took back in 2003.
This historic old XXX drive-Inn is the last XXX on the planet. It's Filled with 60's memorabilia, frequently hosts classic car and truck shows and still serves great sloppy-juicy burgers and root beer. The colorful collection of 60's signs and memorabilia hanging from the walls and ceiling create a visually stimulating room. The checker board floor only adds to the visual effect.
