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.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

You will have undoubtedly heard the great news about the BC Government extending the Modified Collector plate to 1974. Also, you may have heard the news about the BC Government granting permission for fenderless vehicles 1940 and older to be operated on paved dry roads in BC. These are areas that the NAACC, Collector Car Club Council, SVABC, BCHRA and the VCCC have been working on for many years. Bob Kelly of the SVABC had a significant influence on the minster involved to help extend the ‘Modified’ collector plate from 1958 to 1974. The BCHRA and fenderless committee members Dan London, Keith Biddlecombe, Rick Ross, Art Brumpton and Jim Winter also had a great influence on the acceptance of fenderless vehicles in BC. Many groups met with ICBC over the past 20 years. Jim Mcdonald, Fred Bennett. Nigel Mathews and John Carlson met with AirCare and ICBC for over 13 consecutive years on a monthly basis. Each person represented a particular group of collector car enthusiasts. The NAACC under the direction of John Carlson and SVABC under the direction of Nigel Mathews continue to meet regularly with ICBC.


Getting both Provincial and Federal legislation changed is very involved and time consuming. Many people have made significant contributions over the years to ensure that the old car hobby is looked after. In my opinion, spreading the recognition to all of the clubs and individuals who have made contributions is very important.


Thank you for your continued support.


Best regards,

John Carlson

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>>
