The annual car show at Engels Repair & Towing drew about 350 vehicles last Sunday. That’s up from approximately 310 last year and 290 the year before.

“It’s steadily growing,” noted Paul Engels, who said the annual event, which started about two decades ago, is becoming a “destination” car show, while still maintaining its easy-going character.

The event went well, Engels said, with a variety of vehicles on display, the band playing in top form, good weather and good food.

Above, this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air draws lookers. It was part of a convoy that came for the show from Port Orchard with former islander Dave Jaeger, Engels said.
