This unusual one of a kind hand crafted car is polished aluminum. It has a Jag engine and the gauges are original airplane parts from British bombers, Hurricanes  and Spitfires. The owner is a pilot and has tuned most of the gauges to work to some extent. I couldn't fine the machine guns.

Got a few shots of the car show here  https://www.flickr.c...sebbles1/5063F9

 

Then I had to leave to wash the mixture of sweat and sunscreen out of my eyes.

Nice running into you at the car show, Bingo!  I didn't stick around long to take photos.  The sun was already getting to me by 10 :o 

 

Forget the Teslas, Alfa had a Giulia Quadrifoglio sitting there today.  It's got to be one of the most exquisite new cars around right now.

The problem with the Alfa is you are the test bed dummy, and you just know it is going to break.

Yeah, I usually find out about these things after the fact and go "darn."

SEPTEMBER 12th

 

 

 

Cars are the stars of the annual show and shine on Oak Bay Avenue and after a year off, they’re back with a special September edition.

 

Traditionally held in July, the popular car show sees hundreds of car lovers flock to Oak Bay each year, with the natural exception of 2020 when it met the same fate as so many other events – cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

 

Organizer Ken Agate bills it as one of the most popular vehicle displays on the Vancouver Island event calendar.

 

https://www.vicnews....-to-the-avenue/

 

Historically, the event attracts up to 300 cars as owners and enthusiasts of all makes and vintages are invited. Agate doesn’t expect to hit that high a number, though figures it’s a possibility as people start to enjoy activities again. Many local restaurants and businesses open especially for the event.

 

_______________________

 

Pre-registration is not required, and exhibitors enter near Foul Bay Road from the west end of Oak Bay Avenue. Registration on arrival for car exhibitors starts at 7 a.m. and $20 is collected at the gate. Volunteers will escort cars to their locations to be on display until 3 p.m.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

that's petty casual.  yes just show up, park your car and give us $20.  They collect $6,000 and anyone at all can display their car of any type or vintage.   the event has no real start time for spectators.  

 

how refreshingly simple.

Where does the “$6,000” go at the end of the day?



Says $15 nonprofit apparently on Oak Bay website: https://www.oakbay.c...or-car-festival

What could the expenses be at this event? I do see live music
