The Festival of the rolling arts

The Sechelt, B.C. is a favourite annual show and shine for a lot of street rodders and classic car owners in the Vancouver area.  Sechelt is on the mainland but accessible only by a short ferry ride. The rod run held the night before the show and shine is always awesome.
Hubby took a few pics here and there coming and going but not of the run as he drives in it but here's a video of part of a previous years run.
This is my main squeeze and our 1940 Ford waiting to board the ferry

Heres a little info on Sechelt if your inclined to read about it. Really a nice laid back life style and some of the most gorgous vistas and views and the friendliest people anywhere.

Hey Catz, well that is cool! Gibsons is such a pretty place and famous for the Beachcombers too.I love the scenerio all over up there and everyone's more appreciative of the hot rods than any other show i've ever been to.Bought the best pair of house slippers there as well as the coolest paper napkins when i was a collector.I could have guessed you were from there; it just seems so fitting.... Please give Miss Lucy a few scrunchy - pats for me.
