The annual show is popular with vehicle owners and the public.

Popular Langley car show benefits students and service club

Horsepower will fill the fields of D.W. Poppy Secondary on Sunday for the 31st annual car show.

Most of us wouldn’t know what to do with a Automotive Solus Edge full function scanner, but we can help provide one for students who will know how to use it.

It’s one of the specialty pieces of equipment that will be purchased with funds from the 31st annual D.W. Poppy Car Show this Sunday.

The annual show has been held to raise funds for the school and give auto aficionados a spring chance to display their pride and joy.

This year’s wishlist from the proceeds includes the scanner, as well as a CNC plasma cutter, TIG welding torch handle with adjustable voltage, and vacuum hold down table for CNC router.

The equipment will help current students become the trained professionals who fix everyone’s vehicles in the future.

Because of sponsorship by the Fox & Hounds Pub and other supporters, 100 per cent of the proceeds from the annual show go to help students.

The school has enlisted some help to pull off this massive event. Langley Good Times Cruise-In volunteers help get vehicles in and out of the display areas. Cruise-In is also in the vendor area and sits on the Poppy car show committee.

The Fort Langley Lions are cooking up a pancake breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m., and the school basketball teams are hosting the concession from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Organizers ask that people do not bring dogs to the event, and all vehicle registration done on site must be in cash. People can register in advance at or on site from 7 to 10 a.m.

The public can get into the show between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. It’s at 23752 52nd Ave.

Spectators can park in the school’s west parking lot for a minimum donation of $5 (to the rugby team and athletics department). Free handicap parking is in the west lot.

The day includes draws, vendors, prizes and an array of vehicles.
