Deuce Days 2019 in Victoria

Garry and Joanne Smith took their 1932 Ford out to Victoria to participate in Deuce Days 2019. Deuce Days is held every three years in Victoria and attracts a variety of classic cars, although the focus is on cars built in 1932, which are referred to as “deuces”. Deuce Days 2019 began on Thursday, July 18th and included a poker run, a meet and greet social, a formal dinner and culminated in the display of the cars in Victoria’s inner harbour on Sunday.

Garry and Joanne attended virtually all the events as participants while Murray Fleming and Wendy Davidson attended Deuce Days as spectators. Garry and Joanne managed to have their classic car parked right in front of the Empress Hotel in a prime location — of course, they achieved this by being at the waterfront at 4:30 a.m.
