Norwich, Ontario, Canada Car Show.

Sunday July, 7, 2024.

My brother Mike and I took in the annual Norwich Car Show held by the long standing Comancheros Car Club. My brother Mike and I cruised there together to an excellent location for a car event. We got there early and there was already an amazing turn out. Cars kept rolling in and the whole area was filled to the brim with sweet looking time machines. I took my 74 Chev Caprice Estate and Mike took his 62 Ford Falcon. Spent a beautiful day talking to good old car folks and breathing in beautiful vintage tin. Check out the rides. Cheers.

George, you have everything from SKULL intakes to Mopar's six cylinder ANGER, to A Mopar 440, and to top it off even a Mini Motivation. Very nice variation on what can get a car down the road.

I saw the four door Corvair and said "WHAT!". I didn't even know they made them. Color me confounded and confused, a normal state for me at times.

The 69 Skylark in my favorite color combo of deep burgundy and white. Time to wipe drool.

I'll need to rent a Tuxedo to drive the Tuxedo Nash Metro.

Can't miss that LIPSTICK PINK Fargo can you?

The Dodge Super Bee with the A83 package awesome.

And the creme de la creme (closest as I can come to French) that Mini Wagon. Add that to my never seen before list.

Well done my Canadian friend. Well done. I enjoyed the tour.

Cheerio, Rob

Hey George you're back again! Your last car show was Georgetown back on June 16th so I'm glad to see your latest car show. It's not like you to go that long but better late than never!

This is another nice car show from our Northern Canadian neighbors. They sure turn out with lots of cars and trucks. And it was nice to see your 74 Chevy Caprice Estate Wagon again. I had a 72 Chevy Wagon and it was a dream to drive with air conditioning!

Lots of great looking cars in this show and my first pick is the beautiful 60 Buick Invicta. I love the white color with red interior and a convertible to boot! And the whitewalls with the red rims make it stand out. A really beautiful seldom seen car, the 60 Buick.

My next choice is the gorgeous 56 Dodge Rose and White 2 door HT. That was a great year for all cars before the finned cars of 57. Again another seldom seen car at shows. This one is in Showroom condition.

Chrysler was just getting started back then before their 1957 Forward Look campaign which generated a lot of sales. I love the 57 Plymouth ad "Suddenly its 1960".

There's a wonderful 1956 Dodge commercial where 3 Jet Pilots drive their 56 Dodges to the base and take off in their Jets. Here is the link if you want to see it: https://youtu.be/aDTcU7axz44?si=RHEBwiNVb1xEsNDM

The 65 Corvair 4 door HT is a rare car and it's a beauty. I actually got to see one in today's Oyster Bay car show which I'll post tomorrow. Another rare car.

Finally the 57 Canadian Dodge with the 57 Plymouth rear is unique. You called them Plodges. Very unique indeed.

Thank you for posting all the pictures George and I'm looking forward to more of your car Shows. Cheers my Canadian friend, Mario

Rob and Mario, the kind words are always appreciated .My American old vintage tin friends. Mario the word Plodge was a nick name that was given them being half Plymouth and half Dodge. I missed a bunch of events between those two shows you mentioned because of rain outs. Cheers.
