Attendees selected the mildly modified and rebuilt 1941 Graham Hollywood, owned by Roy Deaver of Clinton, as Best of Show in the Cool Bayview Nights car show Saturday.

This is the second year the show was held at the Island County Fairgrounds and the 13th year for the show itself. The display featured 74 vehicles of all makes ranging from 1907 to 2012, and included tractors and motorcycles. Organizer Brian Grimm describes the show as a success, although afternoon rain and competition from the big Greenwood Car Show in Seattle the same day may have kept some spectators and exhibitors away.

Grimm estimates the show generated about $500 and over 100 pounds of food to be donated to local charities. He says the show committee welcomes volunteers to help plan and conduct next year’s event.

Vehicles which had previously won Best of Show were on the first line of display upon entering the fairgrounds. Grimm showed his 1948 Gibson tractor.
