The Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum hosted their 45th annual Antique and Classic Car Show on Aug. 12. The family event was an opportunity to stroll the grounds, chat with the owners of the prized antique and classic cars on display, vote for your favourite cars and partake in the live entertainment, food vendors, and heritage and children’s activities.
The feature car, a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette, took front stage in the museum parking lot. Owner CJ Kumar proudly showed off the car and its features: rims made of steel and carved into three dragons, twin dragons airbrushed along the sides. The underside of the car is engraved with a memorial to the people who have fought for Canada and, underneath the hood, is another memorial thanking those who have served for our country.
According to Ward 3 Coun. Hugo Kroon, a 12-year volunteer and car show chair, “For 45 years the museum staff, the dozens and dozens of volunteers, the hundreds of participants and their vehicles and the thousands of spectators help make this Whitchurch-Stouffville’s longest running and most successful family-friendly event. A great day was had by all and we are looking forward to next year’s show already.”
Mark your calendars for next year’s show, on Aug. 11.
