MARYSVILLE Classic cars of all makes and models will be on display July 29 at Asbery Field during the Port Gardner Vintage Auto Club show.
The show generates money for several charities and a long time favorite cause has been helping students at the Marysville-Pilchuck High School auto technology program.
This year two students will be given $500 gift cards to buy tools at a local Sears store, according to organizer Mary Sebring.
Were promoting the interest of cars and the kids up there at the high school sometimes get over looked, Sebring said. They dont get the big scholarships.
The club is based out of Everett but many of the 80 members live in Marysville and they have great faith in M-P auto tech instructor Chuck Nichols, who has been very successful in placing his students in high-paying jobs in the local market. Thats just fine with the car buffs, according to Sebring.
We have a lot of confidence in that scholarship program, she said. This is the first time in years weve been in Marysville.
The attractions will likely include her own 1935 Chrysler Air-Flow and a 1937 Cord Beverly Custom. In the past some Rolls-Royces have appeared, and a dragster always shows up. It will belch fire a couple times during the day-long event, and several custom bicycles will be on display.
Its a real rainbow of automobiles in the club itself, Sebring said.
Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendal has agreed to hand out the awards. The show runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the awards will start about a quarter to three, she said. There is no charge for admission for the public and the show is sponsored by Sandblasters, Inc. of Marysville and Wesco Auto Body Supply.
