St. Jacobs, Ontario, Canada Car Show.

Saturday June 8, 2024.

My brother Mike and I took in the 48th annual St. Jacobs Car Show in the beautiful area of St. Jacobs near Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. There was a huge turn out of about 500 cars and there was live music all day by an Elvis guy and his band. There was an amazing variety of vintage tin and Mike and I spoke to many wonderful old car folks. Great weather there and back with lots of country side to absorb while cruising in our oldies. Check out the rides and cheers.

YOWZA YOWZA YOWZA.........500 CARS!!!!!!!!!!

Let's see, walking by one a minute, that's 500 minutes, divided by 60 per hour that would take over 8 hours to cover if my math is right, and I wouldn't be surprised if ti isn't.

Like Elvis would sing: That's a hunka hunka hunka lot of Sheetmetal!!!

It takes me back to my days in Carlisle PA where it would take me a good 2 days to really walk the fairgrounds and see everything.

Well you definitely got your monies worth and thanks for sharing some of that with us.

The Edsel sort of startled me...not sure what to make of that but to each their own. The 67 Chebby Wagon brings back memories of me and my friend named PIGEON, not because he was a snitch, but because he raised what else? CHICKENS! No he raised pigeons.

His Dad had a 67 company car with a 6 cylinder three speed manual and we would go cruising the "circuit" looking for girls. I was much smaller in 67 and I felt lost in that Impala interior.

Every car show needs a lead sled and you have one of the nicest ones there.

Well I could go on and on like i usually do, but I'll stop. It's just those memories come flooding back of happier times, innocent times, that one would think they'd never end.

But sadly, as I grow older and my memory isn't quite as good as it once was, I'm so thankful I can still recall some of the best days of my life.

Cheers George......

Many nice cars George but the fact that you had a 1935 Plymouth there really struck me. That was my Dad's first car that he bought in 1942 when he was just 18 years old. I have a Page dedicated to my Dad's cars and that was his first! Cheers, Mario

I see one of my favorites made the cut, that GTX. I always liked them since they were a tad bit of an upgrade from the BEEP BEEP Roadrunner.
