Just for the fun of it:

Editor’s Note:  It is always fun to read what oth­ers are say­ing about shows worth par­tic­i­pat­ing in, and more cer­tain­ly from our Cana­di­an friend, Cam Hutchins.

Cam is a pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er, auto writer, and tru­ly a “car nut”. You’ll find more about Cam and his activ­i­ties at Car Nut

 

From Cam’s latest epistle, with permission of course:

 

The big Lan­g­ley (BC) show hap­pens this week­end with a great mas­sive car show on Sat­ur­day and a swap meet Sun­day. I have been going to this show for more than 10 years. In 2002, I shot pho­tos of Alyn Edwards’ GT 500 KR and did a mon­tage por­trait of it. One of my first, and now I am doing a mon­tage por­trait of his wife’s 1960 Corvette that she has owned since the ear­ly 70’s. Edwards has just had it restored and it will be unveiled at the Van­cou­ver Super­Car show at Van Dusen Gar­dens this week­end. ( See Fea­tured Events)

 

The New­ton Boys are up to their hijinks at Rusty’s Pub in Cloverdale this Sun­day with a Drag­ster fir­ing up that will shake the ground and fill the air with the sweet sound of a mul­ti 1000 horse­pow­er engine fir­ing up!!! Across town is the Cat and Fid­dle Show and the HOG “Harley Own­ers Group” presents their 14th “HOG WILD About Read­ing – Motor­cy­cle ride for lit­er­a­cy 5-stop scrab­ble ride. The ride is a read­ing take off of the “Pok­er” run and is open to all vehicles…so grab your favourite ride and tour the low­er main­land for a good cause.

 

When you go to car shows this week­end,  I want you to think of the amaz­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty we have in BC to see some amaz­ing cars that in many cas­es with enough love and mon­ey have tran­scend­ed being just cars and are now works of art.

 

I spoke with a fel­low at the 55–56-57 Chevy Club annu­al pic­nic at Alder­grove Park and he told me that he went on the Chevy II cruise with his Chevy 2 and used 1 & 1/2 tanks of gas. He then opened up the hood to show me the mas­sive 496 cu. in. engine with a seri­ous thirst for fuel to make huge amounts of horse­pow­er. But it does get 68 miles per tank…that is seri­ous com­mit­ment to own­ing a cool car.

Oth­er major expens­es by car own­ers to offer the pub­lic amaz­ing vehi­cles to look at. At last weekend’s Cres­cent Beach Con­cours d Ele­gance,  David Cohen brought his 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C-1750 Gran Sport that was orig­i­nal­ly shown at the 1933 Paris Salon and more recent­ly shown at Peb­ble Beach Con­cours d Ele­gance. After the car was shown with a Figo­ni body at the Paris Salon it was rebod­ied with a light weight rac­ing body for the 1935 LeMans race.

 

After spend­ing most of it’s life in South Africa, it was restored by RX Autoworks in North Van­cou­ver and then was shown at the 2012 Con­cor­so D’Eleganza Vil­la D’Este in Lake Como. It won the top 3 awards at the show and only 2 oth­er cars have ever won all 3 in the last 80 years. Peb­ble Beach was next and it won its class and was run­ner up for the Best of show.

 

Oth­er great mar­ques includ­ed Sim­plex Crane, Pierce, Tal­bot, Lagon­da, Cord, Chalmers and cel­e­brat­ing 50 years of Porsche 911 with a spe­cial Ral­ly Rac­ing 911 from the Porsche Muse­um. Not all great cars have to be from the big lux­u­ri­ous brands: the row of cus­tom Amer­i­can cars and the row of per­fect­ly restored Mus­cle cars were as big a draw as any old Bent­ley.

 

One car that was “per­fect” was Bob Brody’s Chevro­let Z24…not the famil­iar cav­a­lier but the mas­sive 1967 Ima­pala Based SS 427. The SS 427 was shown at the Super Car show in Chica­go last year and was judge to be just shy of 1000 points of per­fec­tion. It lost points for an imper­fect grille badge and a cou­ple of unpaint­ed bolts under the car. Just over 1400 of these Con­vert­ibles were made and only a few of those were 4-speeds like this one. Sold only in the states it was a spe­cial ver­sion of the Impala SS but curi­ous­ly was not badged Ima­pala any­where. When Brody found the car in the Mid­west, it was prob­a­bly too far gone to be restored and the orig­i­nal dri­ve train had been sold to a hot rod­der in New York decades before.

Against all odds, the orig­i­nal dri­ve train was still owned by the hot rod­der who had not got­ten around to installing it so he was will­ing to sell this amaz­ing 427 pow­er­plant. Find­ing many “New Old Stock” orig­i­nal parts to com­plete the restora­tion took a lot of time, but the fin­ished result is stun­ning. The car is paint­ed its orig­i­nal bur­gundy colour and  daz­zles  in the sun but where fired up you know that on the road or track is where it real­ly shines.

 

Prob­a­bly the best part of Cres­cent Beach Con­cours show was that this amaz­ing SS 427 was going to final­ly get to see the road after a year as a pam­pered show car. Imag­ine own­ing a spe­cial car that you restore to per­fec­tion, but can­not dri­ve it because it is more impor­tant to have it seen first. That is the ulti­mate tes­ta­ment of ded­i­ca­tion to the car hob­by and those of us that love cars have to be thank­ful for all those that take the time to give us some­thing over the top to feast our eyes on!!!  ”
