Sunshine was elusive at the 23rd annual Terry Home Show and Shine benefit car show last Saturday, but plenty of automotive beauty gleamed for spectators.

The event attracted classic hot rods and custom cars throughout the state to Pacific City Park. The show raises money for Terry Home’s residential treatment centers in Auburn and Pacific, which care for young adults who’ve sustained traumatic brain injuries.

Cars ranged from tricked-out 1930s hot rods and classic 1950s iron to popular muscle cars of the late 1960s. In other words, something for everyone.

“It’s my dream car. Well, actually, I want a 1956, but it’s close,” said Bonney Lake’s Lacie Parrino as she checked out Stan and Pam Pauley’s 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air.

The two-toned, red-and-white Chevy classic was decked out 1950s style, with a drive-in theatre speaker, a boom-box blasting old-time rock and roll and a drive-up tray of malt and ice cream treats propped up on the driver’s window.

“We try to take anyone who looks at it back to the 1950s,” said Pam Pauley of Woodinville.

Another show-stopper was the 1936 Welcome to My Nightmare Auburn Boat-tail Speedster, with customized spooky paint memorializing shock rocker Alice Cooper. Built from the ground up, the car boasts more than $36,000 in paint alone and sold for $44,000 at a Barrett-Jackson auction in 2012.

The Show and Shine also featured a raffle, vendors, trophies and plaques and activities for the kids.

Next year’s event is being planned. Mark your calendars for Aug. 20, 2016 for the 24th annual Show and Shine.
