What started as a warm summer August day gave rise to a great show ‘n’ shine last Sunday in Garden Bay.
There were 73 entrants, from 1923 up to modern hot rods and some great motorcycles. Hosted again by Ron Johnson and Marita Jokela from the Garden Bay Pub and Restaurant, the Rotary Club of Pender Harbour tended the registration desk, barbecue and sales of T-shirts.
Despite a downpour of about 15 minutes, the rain stopped and the sun came back out. Except for a few convertibles, no one was deterred and the show went on.
Many prizes were won by the entrants, fabulous vehicles and ones that we all wish we could at least have a chance to sit in or ride in. Best in show went to Allan Skelley with his ‘67 Corvette Stingray, matching numbers, high performance and just a joy to look at.
If you did not have a chance to see this show you truly missed a display of transportation from the ‘20s through to the modern era. The hours of labour and love put into these vehicles are amazing and impressive.
Make a note not to miss next year’s show. Pender Harbour is truly fortunate to have this quality of vehicles on display.
