Classics, hot rods bloom at D.W. Poppy fields

On what was a damp and miserable day, music added levity to the D.W. Poppy Secondary’s annual car show.

The Doors’ Riders on the Storm, directly followed by Johnny Nash’s I Can See Clearly Now (The Rain is Gone) poured from the loudspeakers, as visitors braved a steady stream of raindrops to peruse several rows of classic cars and hot rods.

About 60 vehicles were entered in the show, as well as the Langley Good Times Cruise-In and Langley Speedway Historical Society.

A total of $1,000 was raised for D.W. Poppy Secondary programs including dry grad, the school’s basketball teams, and its technology program.

“Our technology programs are raising money for a trailer for the [school’s] race car so they can start taking the car to races, a 3D printer, as well as money to upgrade the dust collection system and electrical in the shops to handle the new machinery,” show organizer Marlene Yakabuski said.

Yakabuski sent out a “big thanks” to the show’s sponsors and donors.

“We look forward to sunnier skies next year,” she added.
