Please keep aware of what is happening in your area.
I am going to write mayor and council and ask that, if and when, they do ban all cars from the Vancouver downtown core that they make exception for old cars that are on a club sanctioned event or are
performing a chartable service such as a wedding.
Soon we will be overrun by By–Laws here in the Vancouver city core.
The unintended outcomes of a Concours d'Elegance.
Or how to preserve the automotive heritage…. musically!
Fate has a way of making the strangest of things happen in our lives. At times, we're left gazing at the sky, dumbfounded, wondering what invisible lightning bolt just zapped us when, as the old phrase goes, planets line up – suddenly, unexpectedly, powerfully. This is one such story, which tells of the most revered road on the continent, of American automobiles at their best, and of the brilliant artists whose remarkable music, both now and then, brings it all together in timeless fashion.

The 2016 Crescent Beach Concours
The selection of cars once again was exceptional and had a huge range of cars but one that struck me the most was thev first showing of a freshly restored 1922 Will Sainte Claire A68 Roadster powered by an Overhead Cam V8. Not the first American V8, certainly the first one with geardriven camshafts.
Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance
The 66th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d Elegance was held on August 21st 2016. I arrived early enough to get a great spot to shoot the cars as they enter the field. The ocean in the background and the nice even light was great. Especially impressive was the cars were clean and not covered with ash like every other car on the peninsula.

CENTENNIAL CARAVAN: CANADA'S COASTERS RIDE AGAIN! 2017
By: Michel Lamoureux
For Fraser Field of Deroche, British Columbia, life on the road has largely amounted to attending the sick and aiding the injured. Which is what you do, of course, when you spend thirty years at the wheel of a fast-paced, wailing-siren ambulance as a paramedic. So it’s no surprise that Fraser's knowledge of, and interest in, these life-saving utilitarians grew with time. Plus, if you're a car guy to boot, why not collect them too. And so, Fraser's job-to-passion transition led to him owning various such models and makes, including a unique 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, a couple of late ‘60s Pontiac Bonnevilles, a 1972 Cadillac, as well as a rare 1948 Chevrolet Panel currently being restored for future use.more>>

EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN!
Replica Market Revolutionized by Landmark Law
The year 2015 will be remembered for many things. For fans of classic cars, it represents the beginning of a new era.
