An Auburn tradition returns Friday when classic car owners converge at Big Daddy's Drive In.

The long-established restaurant along Auburn Way South will hold the first of what organizers hope will be many Friday night car shows. The showcase will run 6 to 10 p.m.

"It used to be a big thing in Auburn. It used to be the thing to do," said Krista Whitish, who worked at the drive-in regularly as a teenager and helped out at frequent nostalgic car shows.

She is now leading the call for a return of the vintage vroom.

"It's kind of like a blast from the past," she said. "A lot of people have been asking about it."

Whitish welcomes car clubs and individual enthusiasts to join the show.

For those interested in the show, call Whitish at 253-334-0897.
