Looks like at least 300 cars. Deuce or Deuce Coupe refers to the '32 Model B Ford, but there will be other cars up to 1951 on display too.

Saturday at Bear Mountain, and Sunday all over the Harbour.

900+ cars in town. That's pretty impressive.

Looks like Sunday might be a nice day for a stroll around the inner harbor and have a look at these cars. I for one love a good car show. I can't think of a nicer setting.

Local street rod builder Al Clark turns out works of art, and will have a display of some of his cars at the Innner Harbour on Sunday.

^ That's worth going just to see see that car. I have the most fun talking to these guys that are so wrapped up in what they are doing. I enjoy the varied stories that make up this hobby.

Me too. The show goes from 10-3 today. Then I might catch Inception at the multiplex.

What a wonderful car show. My last one was "Hot August Nights" in Reno, 6,000 cars. This was every bit as good.

Tunes coming out of the legislative buildings, kids and grand parents wandering everywhere, fancy paint jobs and rusty originals.

I did not know that Al Clark organized this event. His car was perfection. The setting was delightful.

What Sparky said! Some amazing vehicles, and some very generous owners talking to us all all day long...

A really nice event for sure. Would have liked the A&W tent to have been serving some cold root beer though.

The A&W tent was not dispensing root beer on a hot day amongst thousands of people? What sort of marketing is that?

Anyway, it sounded like a successful event. I bet the tourists had a blast walking around.

I think the A&W tent was just an info booth. There were plenty of drink dispensers near the info centre.

Ya, I always wonder what tourists think when they happen to show up here and have no idea what is going on (Canada Day, Symphony Splash, Yellowjacket kicking a guy that's down etc.). Super bonus for them...

I saw a yellow one twice today, once on Millstream and again on Douglas, now I know why.

It had LED tail lights tho, not sure whether it should have them or not, sort of looked out of place.

There are a bunch of them surrounding the Days Inn on Belleville. The Coho Ferry brought a bunch up from Port Angeles yesterday and it was kinda fun following the progress on FB.

The wheels are rolling once again for one of the region’s star tourist attractions, as Destination Victoria announced on Thursday its purchase of Northwest Deuce Days. The event is expected to return in the summer of 2022.

 

 

Started in 1998, Deuce Days is a three-day gathering for vehicles converted into hot rods, street rods and rat rods. The star of the show is the 1932 Ford — commonly referred to as a Deuce, a nickname related to an abbreviation of the car’s year of manufacture.

While finishing up my apprenticeship and getting my red seal, I took on a pretty cool Model A project for a local fella that took 2 years of my pretty constant evenings and weekends, but It gave me my first real opportunity to get a little creative with the skills I had started to learn. It ended up getting a lot of attention at the local car shows and was a big part in what gave me the confidence to quit my position in collision in order to continue pursuing metal work full time. A decision that, in hindsight, seems a little batshit crazy knowing how little experience I had, and probably what could barely be considered a plan, but I had grown tired of collision work and metal shaping held a pull for me I found hard to ignore.

I loved the idea of coach building and doing radical custom projects, but realized pretty quickly that most of the work available when it came to these vehicles was in restoration. These jobs gave me my fix of metal shaping and taught me alot, but were definitely lacking a bit in the creative department. It was in 2017, with a restoration job on the go and limited shop space, that the custom motorcycling scene first came onto my radar. The momentum of the custom scene being quite high and getting to see so many different cool things online, motorcycles themselves definitely seemed to offer the creativity and diversity I was craving. Some time around then I bought my first project bike, a 1976 Yamaha.
