St. Jacobs, Ontario, Canada Car Show.

Sunday October 2, 2022.

I took in the annual St. Jacobs, Ontario, Canada car show. It was a beautiful drive there and back in perfect weather. The turn out was amazing with a mind numbing number of perfect vintage cars. My brother Mike took his 1962 Ford Falcon and I took my 1957 Pontiac. At the end of the show the awards were presented and I was surprised to have been called up for the memorial trophy for the event for my 57 Pontiac. Just a great day all around. Enjoy the rides. Cheers.

Wow George, your posting here has more flavors than Howard Johnson did when they had their restaurants and hotels all over the country.

That wild Caddy!!

That Lark Wagon was a killer!!

I loved me some Packard too!!

Can I put wheels on that Crosley Jukebox and drive it? I've always wanted one of those for my 50's room. Never got the room, nor the jukebox. :-(

And the Pontiac Pathfinder Deluxe is a fan pick here.

Great job George, and as your prize, here is the list of the 28 flavors of ice cream you could get at Howard Johnsons.

I was going to list but I'll just post a link:

Pardon me George for overlooking the Memorial Trophy. Was that for you, or your car?? :-)

The memorial award is presented in memory of long time club member Jim Kennedy. The club The highwaymen formed in 1956 and is active today. Jim was a club member and the award represents a car that Jim would have loved. I am in great appreciation that the club members thought that my car deserved this honor.
