Issaquah kicked it back to the “good ol’ days” Sunday with the 12th annual Fenders on Front Street classic car show for Father’s Day.

With its plethora of historic buildings, Olde Town Issaquah provided the perfect setting for a collection of vintage cars to be displayed for the public in the Downtown Issaquah Association’s annual festival. Front Street closed to vehicle traffic to allow the classic cars to park along the street.

The 1950s-style Triple XXX Rootbeer Stand also hosted classic cars, creating a scene that looked right out of the age of rock n’ roll. Attendees rocked out to the oldies that played at different locations throughout town and provided the perfect soundtrack for looking at cars from the 1950s and 1960s.

One set of cars was noticeably different from the others — rather than dating back to past decades, these cars came from the future. Can you spot the cars that are different from all the others in the Reporter’s photo collection?
