Cool cars at Cool Bayview Nights Car Show

Best in Show award went to 1965 Mustang convertible

At this year’s Cool Bayview Nights Car Show, the Best in Show award went to Becky Eilert’s lightly customized 1965 Mustang convertible. Eilert, a former Mutiny Bay resident who now lives in Edmonds, got the car as a graduation gift from her father, who died this year.

“Brian has been after me for years to bring this car to the show,” said Eilert, referring to organizer Brian Grimm. About 90 vehicles were displayed on the grounds of the Bayview Community Hall.

Grimm said all proceeds from food sales would be matched by Goosefoot Foundation to repaint the Bayview Hall, which his grandfather helped build.

Three long-time South Whidbey participants who died last year — Bob Brown of Maxwelton, Jerry Lubinski of Swede Hill and Tony Smith of Bayview — were honored at this year’s edition of Cool Bayview Nights.
