The 25-year tradition of the UW Helmet Car comes to an end with the car being donated to MOHAI this morning.

SEATTLE — The beloved Husky Helmet Car was retired Thursday and donated to the Museum of History and Industry.

The Helmet Car gained fame by circling Husky Stadium on a track following every touchdown, field goal or safety as members of the Husky band and cheer squad rode it in celebration.

As part of the $261 million renovation to the stadium, the track around the field was removed and thus ended the 25-year tradition.

    Either the Husky Alumni Band Association dropped the ball or MOHAI did. Roy Pollack {trumpet} and my self Walt Wilson {woodwinds} drove down from Edmonds and Ballard to see the induction of the Husky football helmet vehicle at MOHAI at 10:30 am Thursday August 14th. We were told, in writing, that the event was "free to the public". However we were surprised that we, as Husky Alumni Band members, were not allowed to enter the lobby with out paying the $16.00! Not good public relations and bad word of mouth for MOHAI.
