Somebody should host an electric vehicle show and shine.

 

Where the curious can come and speak - casually, informal - to real owners about real local electric car experiences.

True, but I think it would be good for owner-to-curious conversations, like you've probably had with your neighbour that has a Tesla.

There was one of these in Sydney last weekend. Electric cars and bikes where you could talk to the owners about their experience.

The first annual Victoria Sport Import Car Show is set for Saturday, Aug. 13, at the Saanich Fairgrounds.

 

Proceeds from the show will be used to support the BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the Saanich Peninsula Hospital and Healthcare Foundation and St. John Ambulance.

Mark Ferris, the show’s organizer, is particularly excited about Japanese domestic market cars — known in the car community as JDMs — which are vehicles originally sold exclusively in Japan.

“It’ll be a really great opportunity to see cars you can’t usually see here,” said Ferris.

 

In addition to showing cars, there will also be space for vendors who offer car-related services to set up booths to promote their services and meet new clients.

 

Among the vendors will be Victoria’s Coachwerks, a restoration company which Ferris said is known worldwide.

 

Coachwerks will be bringing surprise to the show, one which is unknown even to Ferris himself.

 

The show, free to the public, will feature vintage vehicles and imports from countries including Japan and Germany. There are currently more than 40 individuals registered to show their cars at the event. The vehicles to be presented include a 1969 Datsun Fairlady Roadster, a Lamborghini Aventador and a 1966 Ford Cobra.

The 10th annual Langford Show and Shine is fast approaching and classic car owners are revving up their engines in anticipation.

Centred under the archway on Goldstream Avenue on Aug. 21, classic cars from 1975 or earlier will be assembled and drivers will have them looking their best, in hopes of winning a coveted award.

The show runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with participant parking open from 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., or until full.
