Cobourg, Ontario, Canada Car Show.

Saturday July 8, 2023.

I took in the annual Cobourg car show that has been putting on an amazing car show for many years now. Right within a few feet of lake Ontario, the area is just beautiful. My brother Mike took his 1962 Ford Falcon and I took my 1957 Pontiac. Enjoyed a beautiful day filled with sweet rides. Sadly for me on the way back home on the highway my Pontiac died and I had to have my 57 flat bedded home. It turned out that a over sized fuel filter is what caused the issues. I took that filter off and now everything is fine. Check out the rides. Cheers.

Another fabulous Car Show George! Great pictures you took of many of the best cars. Sorry to hear you had car trouble driving back, but thankfully it was just the fuel filter and nothing major.

As far as the show cars here are the best I liked:

Creampuff 1956 Buick Hardtop. What a beauty and showroom condition!. 1955 Buick Road Master another classic in outstanding condition. 1956 Meteor love the two tone color and not seen around here. The 56 Ford has always been a favorite of mine.

Of course the car that saved Ford the 49 Ford. Great example of the savior of Ford. This one is in superb condition with it's original Flathead V8. The 37 Packard with its rumble seat is a rare one. The 51 Chevy Bel Air 2 door HT another great car in wonderful condition. And finally the 56 Chevy blue and white 2 door HT. Love the car and the two tone paint. All great Cruisers and another great car show George! Thank you for sharing. Cheers, Mario

I noticed that the 1954 Pontiac Laurentian, Canadian model has the same taillights as the 1954 Chevy American.

The rear end and trunk also look like the 54 Chevy from the back but the front end is very close to the 54 Pontiac American version. Quite interesting.

Mario, our Canadian Pontiac's that were built in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada were based on the Chevrolet platform. It was such a major hit here that many years it out sold the Chevrolet and the Ford. I kid you not. The Canadian Pontiac was a major bang for the buck and Canadians flocked to buy them. I have owned many Canadian versions of GM cars and presently own two. My 57 Pontiac and my 74 Chev Caprice Estate. Cheers.

I took a look at all the Canadian cars that were built in the GM Oshawa, Ontario plant over the decades and was very impressed. Many GM cars have been built there as well as trucks and right hand drive cars for other Countries. Several makes were made strictly for Canada and received high marks for Quality. Thanks for the info George. Cheers, Mario
