Everything Cars in Victoria, Vancouver Island, and The Pacific Northwest
Look Who’s Talking
With household products of art deco design currently drawing huge dollars among collectors, Philip says its time for cars that were influenced by art deco to get special attention at car shows and concours. And the best way to honour these rare beauties is with a unique awards category.
What a wonderful weekend it was for west coast car enthusiasts with not one but two great shows! Nigel, who produced the classics section of Vancouver’s Supercar show, tells us about some of the stunning and rare award winners, including an unrestored 1911 Chalmers that still runs with nothing having been done but a change of tires.
An elegant, four-door sports sedan, the Ghibli brings a unique touch of Italian style to the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Jaguar XF and Mercedes-Benz E-Class segment. Although Maserati’s lowest-price model, it lacks nothing, as Tony writes, in performance, handling, and quality.
All events are listed in our calendar, including shows, runs, motorsports and auctions in Victoria, Vancouver Island and the Pacific Northwest. If we have missed an event, you can send us the details and will make sure it gets added. All upcoming events are also included in our newsletter that goes out bi-weekly during the show season.

In this edition: Philip recalls a 1978 drive to Monaco and Tuscany in a Ferrari 400 GT, where the car came out a little worse for wear; Nigel looks at Volvo’s first car; and, Tony test drives a popular convertible – the 2015 Volkswagen Beetle. We take a look at last weekends Canadian Concours d’Elegance held at VanDusen Garedens in Vancouver.
Supercar Weekend and the Canadian Concours d’Elegance at VanDusen Gardens in Vancouver September 6 & 7th. This has to be one of the best shows in Canada for the quality of cars and great hospitality.
