Summertime motoring is in full swing for Classic Car owners, so it's time to celebrate! The B.C. Government proclaimed July as "Collector Car Appreciation Month", and July 11th as the designated "Collector Car Appreciation Day". Here at the CCA offices, we felt it appropriate to commemorate the date with an informal gathering of Classic Car enthusiasts. What:
A casual meetup with fellow classic car owners and enthusiasts. Start your weekend off right, and join us this Saturday at the Park and Tilford mall in North Vancouver for a summertime 'Carbs and Coffee' get together. Enjoy a coffee and the company of fellow car nuts and we celebrate a government declaration we can all appreciate! Open to all Classic, Collector and Retro Cars*, we expect there will be a wide variety of cars to appreciate!
Following our Carbs and Coffee event, join us for a drive to enjoy our vehicles as they were meant to be...driven! When:
Saturday July 11th 2015, 8:00-11:00am. Where:
Meeting at 8:00am in the Park and Tilford parking lot, gather in the South-West corner of the parking lot, or wherever there is parking available. Note:
Any vehicles exhibiting dangerous driving, engine revving, or inconsiderate actions will be reported to the RCMP & West-Van police immediately.
* Now, you might wonder...what designates a "Classic, Collector or Retro-Car?
" For an event such as this one, we prefer to leave the interpretation fairly wide open, you never know what sort of vehicles might show up. Certainly if your vehicle is made before 1979 it qualifies as a Classic. If your car was made between 1980 and 1989, and is eligible for Collector plates in BC, it definitely qualifies as a Collector car. "Retro Cars" is our designation for vehicles of interest, which don't fit in the first two categories. Perhaps you have a modified vehicle which can't get collector plates? Or perhaps it's an early 90's classic, which hasn't quite made the year range. Truthfully, we're all car people at heart. If you're a car-nut like us, we're not going to turn you away. This is about Collector Car Appreciation, simple as that.
