Sharing a love for cars

The annual Rods-N-Relics Car Club’s auto show held in Grafton’s Lime Kiln Park is a rite of summer — a time for those who have lovingly restored cars to show off their labors of love and for auto enthusiasts to bond over their passions for cars. At this year’s event, held Saturday, June 23, Dan Schaefer of Port Washington showed photos of what his car looked like before he restored it (top left). Jeff Omen’s motorcycle (top right) has a lot of custom features, including one you can’t buy anywhere — a windshield that was partially melted by lightening when it was struck while Omen was riding it. The car show benefits local high schools, and this year $2,000 of tools were donated to Port Washington High School. Posing with the tools (above) were club members (from left) Peter Raymond, John Oates, Don Everix and Glenn Wille and Port High automotive teacher Nick Havlik. A mini stock car (above) looked a little small for Dan Ihis but perhaps just the right size for his 2-year-old son Heinz.                  Photos by Sam Arendt
