Rockton, Ontario, Canada Car Show and Swap Meet..

Saturday September 24, 2022.

I took in the annual Rockton, Ontario, Canada car show and swap meet that has been going on for many many years. I took my 57 Pontiac and enjoyed so many sweet time machines and good old car folks to talk to. I got there at 9:30 am and left at 2:00 pm. When I left so many oldies were still rolling in. Check out the rides. Cheers.

What a great collecton of cars. From mild to wild. Funny how our cars show so much of our individuality as far as modifying to keeping it stock.

Will your car show season soon be ending George? The ones in AZ are just coming into their own as far as being during the daytime.

I'll take the 67 Corvette with the redline tires and sidepipes.

By the looks of cars in the background, if you photographed them all, you'd still be there.

Do you know how mny entries there were?

Oh I really like that coil pack conversion on that 250 inline 6 and the turbo. That took some ingenuity, and skill. Both of which I am in short supply of here. :-)

I agree with Rob a great show with so many different cars and trucks George. I see leaves falling already by you. We're still green on the trees here in NY.

The 59 Fargo is super cool, that caught my eye and I like the color combination.

The 3 67 Vettes are a nice staging and a beautiful 55 Chevy with Continental wheel is perfect!

The 53 Meteor Canadian is a rare find in really good condition and a 2 dr ht no less. Thank you for sharing all these pictures George! Cheers, Mario

Rob, the 55 Chev with the 250 six with coil packs and turbo was a real site to see. The owner lives in the same town as me in Milton, Ontario. There are car shows here in southern Ontario until the very end of October and I plan on going to all of them, weather permitting. I envy you guys in warmer climates with car shows all year long. Cheers.

Mario, the weather is changing real fast here in southern Ontario. I fear many of the shows that are left will be cold rained on but I am hoping for the best. In all seriousness here, I get actually depressed when the season is over. I am retired and I do not have enough to do now. My cars require nothing and I have no room to build another one. Cheers.

I find 3 cars quite amusing George... The Cogo, did that rival the YUGO?

The British ealy 60s MINI.....

and the ????????

Of course the Amercian offering of a Nash Metropolitan makes me wonder......

how do people fit in these things???

Rob, you would be very surprised how roomy some of these tiny tot cars are. Unless a person is over six feet tall, these cars can accommodate the average person. The Cogo is a far far superior car to the pure trash Yugo. This little car was never offered in North America. The owners imported it from Japan. Cheers.

Pardon me while I pick 3 nits. check the hoods, side vents and back up lights on the Corvettes and get back to me. they appear to be 65 or 66. but there Corvettes what's not to love. I like the coil pack conv. on the 250 6. very creative. drive'em if you got them. LARRY

Larry, I stand to be corrected because I am no Vette expert by no means. Larry, if you are absolutely sure about this then I will make the corrections. Cheers.
