The sun defied the weather man and attended the 14th Annual Father's Day Show and Shine in Qualicum Beach BC on June 17th. Thousands packed the streets to view the antique cars on display. Some 500 to 600 hundred cars from the 1920's to the 1970's lined 1st Ave, 2nd Ave, Primrose and Beach RD. Motorcycles and trucks were on display at the Civic Centre beside the beer garden.
Entertainment, food, shopping, 50-50 draws and door prizes added to the fun. A street dance on Saturday night with 1950's rock and roll tunes kicked off the festivities.
Awards for the Best of Show, Best Antique, Best Motorcycle, Best Truck and each decade were presented Sunday afternoon. Many of the antiques had been modified into Hot-Rods, while many had been lovingly restored to the original specs.
The 1931 Model A Ford, shown here, is owned by local resident Terry Wilson and has won several awards. Terry, a retired banker, has collected Model A's for years and maintains an active business buying and selling Model A parts.
