As usual, the show was held at Lion’s Park, with cars on display on both sides of the Sturgeon River.  A better venue for a car show would be hard to find.

The show drew over 900 cars and specialty vehicles.   The weather was fantastic and the crowd of spectators viewing the cars was never ending.

Brian came away with an award for GM truck pre 92.

Gord and Elaine Bredo brought their truck and teardrop trailer to the show, and numerous attendees were intrigued with the trailer.   The trailer was built by Gord, and he and Elaine camped in it up at St Albert for a few nights.
