That is a great article written by some who not only did their homework but is interested. I know of one local 32 that is going out of Port Angeles.
I've never been to the show but when sis it open up to other cars, I was under the impression it was just a Deuce show. HRP
On Sunday, there is a separate parking area nearby for non Deuce cars.
Yep the non 32 Ford get put over in the cheap seats. Those aren't bad seats by any stretch though. But at least they get to go. Saving grace for a couple of guys I communicate with as their 32 project isn't to a point where it can be driven.
I didn’t make it last time, but I’ll be there this year!
HOTRODPRIMER, yes even though the show is called Deuce Days it is open to Pre 1952 vehicles. That said, aprox. 600 vehicles will be 1932 Fords! Not too many shows can say that!
Also the '32's get premier parking on the lawn of the Empress Hotel & the B.C. Legislative Building. This will be my 3rd time attending and I can tell you of all the shows I have been to, this is my favorite!
I heard this morning that there have been a few changes. My understanding is the original 1100 car cutoff has changed to 1400 cars registered, the parking in front of the host hotel is now ab bike lane and the Empress Hotel is not allowing cars on the front lawn this year. I guess We’ll see in a couple weeks

Yeah the Empress didn’t allow cars on the lawn last time either due to new owners who seem to want to cater to a younger non-traditional crowd who probably all drive Tesla’s.
Good article but it didn’t mention the one time it was held in Chilliwack though.
I was working on my non deuce last night, getting it ready to go
Lucky enough to have met Al at the 2016 event. Doubt he will remember me in all the masses he exchanged pleasantries with, but you sure know the measure of a man when he is run that ragged and he is still kind and generous with his time to all those he crosses paths with. Bonus, the event seems to embody that spirit as well. I met car nuts from all over the planet and all I’m really looking forward to going again this year. Made a few changes to the 5W since last drive out and almost have everything dialed in (famous last words, right?). Still no radio or a/c though so the wife has to listen my singing again. Poor gal .
PS: shout out to all his helpers, as without them this thing couldn’t be half of what it is. Cheers.
Another great news article on why we build & drive these old cars!
