    I'm a member of the VCCC and there may be changes coming to our regulations regarding hot rods next fall. Stay tuned...

    There were modified cars there, pretty limited on anything HAMB friendly, but I find that to be true of any open car show. Pretty heavy on the 50's/early 60's stockers. But some damn nice ones

    hard to believe no one commented on the location but I will.that sure looks like the E.L.T.A get together if you want to see Ontario Hotrod history in the flesh that is one not to miss.forgot to add they hold it in their hometown London,Ontario.their club house is a museum of early speed history.I have not been sorry to say but have viewed pictures posted over time from people who were there.watch for dates I lost my pictures from past events showing dates.I am sure a google search will bring something up.if this seems like a commercial sorry but it is a must see.

    I too attended the GG Puyallup event for many years and looked forward to the Canadian Corral, always had some great rods and customs there.
    Some real memorable ones too like the McLander Bros, Cam Grant, Laurie Peterson.
    I seem to recall a cool ?55 or ?56 Chevy that had (somehow) ?car magazine covers or something photo transferred on the entire roof, I don't think I dreampt it.

    Nelson, BC puts on a nice bacon gathering. Wife and I had a good time, and the drive there and back from Calgary was even better.

    We, wife & I, have been for the past 12 years leaving the day after Christmas for our place in Arizona.
    Being just south of Seattle we of course travel I-5. A couple of years back as I was approaching the Cowlitz river bridge near Toledo about a hundred or so miles south. I hear a soft rumble, getting louder coming up from behind. Looking in the mirror I see two AMBR quality deuce roadsters coming on hard, tops down on a cloudy dreary day. They pass, I give two thumbs up and notice BC tags on both cars. Hardy boys those two.

    Love the people, the cars, B.C. border to border north to south, & east to west, even what is called bacon there. Have traveled a lot up there and even conducted classes for Boeing in Winnipeg, but OMG what passes for sausage is so bad, it is beyond description. (sorry canucks, I loves ya).

    Am I right in thinking that Canada used to drive on the left as in UK then changed to the right in the 50s

    Drove on the right side of the road here from back in the Model A days and earlier. Model T and Model A that were shipped to England and Australia made here were set up both ways. T tourings had doors on both sides for both markets and A's had the frame punched for steering boxes on the right and left side. Final assembly probably done in the destination country.
