Chilliwack – A long list of award-winning cars are lined up for Sunday’s extremely popular Fraser Valley Classic Car Show at Chilliwack’s Atchelitz Threshermen’s Association grounds.
Drawing close to 150 beautifully maintained rare vehicles from across B.C., this year’s event is once again free to enter, and free to attend.
Sponsored by Great Canadian Oil Change and led by the extremely rare 1911 Ford Touring and a 1929 Rolls-Royce, it promises to hit all the hot spots.
“I’m really looking forward to being live on location once again with my Nothin’ But ‘70s show from 9-1 before plugging in to performing my solo show from 1-3,” McDonald says.
“This is one of the highlights of summer in Chilliwack!”
The FVCCS evolved from the longstanding Minter Gardens Classic Car Show, and classic vehicle entries from the 1910s to 1979 are ready to roll in. A commitment to domestic and import pure classics sets this show apart from other vintage show and shines.
“It’s purebreds,” says Show Manager Harv McCullough.
“They’re what vehicles looked like when they rolled off the factory line. They’re elegant and authentic as possible, they’re not resto-rods or custom machines.”
Last year’s runaway People’s Choice Winner is a labour of love for Chilliwack’s Campbell Murray. His faithfully restored 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Super Cobra Jet will be front and centre.
“It’s the car I’ve always wanted,” Murray says. He hunted for it, finding it in the Interior through word of mouth more than 30 years ago.
That pride and tradition tied to authentic classic cars sets the FVCCS apart from other show-and-shines. Adding to that authenticity, the unique ATA Pioneer Museum will be open with functioning displays, including antique transport vehicles, farm equipment and carriages. The entire site is an absolutely unique functioning museum with unlimited opportunities for the entire family, including Spinners and Weavers demonstrating their skills.
Great food’s even on tap, thanks to the legendary Grannies Kitchen.
The FVCCS runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 17 at the Atchelitz Threshermen’s Association Museum, located alongside Chilliwack Heritage Park, 44140 Luckakuck Way. Great food and refreshments will be available to purchase.
