2017 Greater Vancouver Motorsports Pioneers Induction
« on: September 23, 2017, 09:02:45 PM »
Went to pretty much my favorite event of the year today, had a great time as usual. This is not really a car show per-se, its an annual deal where they induct the current year nominees into the Greater Vancouver Motorsports Pioneers society. But there are always some neat cars in the parking lot, and last year, Mo Davidson initiated the "Cloverdale Cacklefest" which looks to become a new annual tradition! ;D so without further adieu...

This was pretty much the first thing I saw when I arrived, any real Vancouver area car guy knows what this means...


 Geoffs Olds, he used to be a Mission Raceway tech inspector

My friend Doug Currans '40. This car has the cam, compression and gear to actually back up the look.

Think this is Rolf Norbergs F100, he also owns the Earl Pogue Dragmaster we will see shortly


This GTO was a stick, sounded pretty rowdy

Canadian Merc M-1, sorry about the poor photo quality.


I know the Military Harley belongs to 2017 Inductee Ron Lacy, think maybe the BMW is his too? He rode the Harley through 12 European countries in 2014, 14,000 miles in five months.

Some of the quality of the indoor photos is pretty crappy, I just had a cheapy point and shoot pocket digital with no flash.

HemiDeuce set up this cool display with some '50s era BCCCA show trophies, and some great period photos. One of them was of a local car I didn't even know about, a channelled full fendered roadster named the "Black Cat" that was really slick. The one shot you can see there is Fred Welch's '40 fordor, pretty well known car that won a lot of shows and was in Car Craft show coverage several times.

Thanks for the pics and stories!  The '40 coupe is cool.  It has to be the only one I've ever seen with a '59 Olds steering wheel.

I'm only about a third of the way through, I'll finish it up in the morning. Some stuff to come on Bill Traquaires T, there have been several photos of it posted on the T-bucket thread, I met his son at Ocean Park last year, met him today, he told me a few good stories.

Nice BB 4 speed '66 Chevelle. 66's are my favorite year chevelle.




Go-Mango 4 speed AAR. When I was in high school, a buddy of mine had a Limelight AAR with an Auto, a woman ran a redlight and hit it on the a-pillar and totaled it. Really totaled it too, she really hit it hard. The dash was pushed up about a foot in the center. :'(

I was going to bring Dale in when I posted the actual cackle photos. I am guessing it was your nephew in the seat? So this is the former Ramchargers car we talked about last year? I should have put that together in my head, I must be getting old.

I liked this Model 40 roadster with the handmade top. As old dad would have said, high zoot.
