CHESAW More than 30 vintage cars, trucks and tractors assembled Saturday under cloudy skies and an occasional sprinkling of rain for the fourth annual Hot Summer Nights show.
Turnout was “very disappointing,” with about half the number of entrants and spectators as in past years, organizer Pauline Waits said.
She attributed the slim turnout to a competing car show at the Big R store in Omak. Those who did turn out found a swap meet, a couple yard sales and plenty of food on the barbecue.
Judges turned in the entry numbers of winners, but organizers didn’t have a master list of entrants’ names with numbers, Waits said.
Best of show – No. 14, Tom and B.J. Carlton, Moses Lake, 1934 Ford Cabriolet.
1940 and older – No. 3, Graham and Penny Bennet, Keremeos, 1926 Ford.
1941-1959 – No. 28.
1960 and newer – No. 30.
Tractors – No. 10, Mark Fedderson, Havillah.
