Pictures of the Week - Chilliwack Vintage Car Show



I had never attended a Vintage Car Rally until this past Sunday in downtown Chilliwack BC but that was enough to make me want to return.  It proves once more that you never know what you will find on the streets of our eastern Fraser Valley communities.

As an aside, there will be a Vintage car Show at the Kilby Museum, Harrison Mills BC July 10th 2010 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Against the backdrop of the heritage buildings there these Classic Cars will look great. Plan to attend.

Back to the Chilliwack streets, clearly evident by their care is a love that transcends their practical function of transportation. One exhibitor, Joe Morris, bought his Classic 40 years ago back when he was only 20 years old.  I wish I could tell you the year and make but as already admitted I am not a car buff.  If you know send me an email.

Joe Morris Classic
I do remember the Mullock family's first vehicles a blue 2 tone Pontiac that 4 kids and our parents would pile into for trips to the drive-in or a sandy Ontario beach, At 4 years of age that was "the best car in the world" and the day I learned that it had been taken as a "trade in" for a wide winged 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne I recall my deep sense of loss.  It's a feeling I like to remember as I work with families selling their homes; that a personal attachment can make a car or house mean more than mere transportation or shelter.

Here are some pictures where I have used some more artistic expression, I hope that you like them.
