Cruisin’ for a good cause: Car shows bring in thousands for Project Backpack | SLIDESHOW
The Bainbridge Island Classic Car Cruise-In wrapped up another summer of fundraising for Project Backpack with an overflow crowd of choice cars and auto enthusiasts on Tuesday, Aug. 26.
Aaron Strom, of Modern Collision Rebuild & Service, said the last edition of the annual event attracted well over 100 car buffs who showcased their wheels.
Approximately $3,400 from this year’s Cruise-Ins will be donated to Project Backpack.
Strom said some of the hottest cars this year were a Mercedes-Benz 300SL (the gull-wing version) and an Austin-Healey.
“A couple of old Packards that came were really cool,” he added.
“The part I like about the show is it’s basically anything, there’s something there for everyone,” he said.
That was evident Tuesday, which also featured workhorse trucks from a generation ago or more in nearly showroom shape, as well as a customized hearse and plenty of classic Chevy Impalas.
