Hot Rods are alive and well this weekend in Victoria as the general public recognizes them in more than just passing interest. 950 or so Hot Rods will roar into Victoria’s Inner Harbour this weekend to celebrate Northwest Deuce Days. The cars, mostly pre-50’s will represent a healthy sector of the Hot Rod craze. I call it this because I am crazy about them and working on Bigbolt is just part of it.
Here’s some of the info from the website: (http://www.northwestdeuceday.com/about.htm)
About Northwest Deuce Days
Since 2000, Northwest Deuce Day has been growing in popularity.
The first event was held in Victoria’s Oak Bay Village. In 2002, the event was moved to Chilliwack and grew in size with over 80 1932 Fords in attendance.
In 2004, it moved back to Victoria’s and its inner harbour and featured 127 1932 Fords.
Then, in 2007, again at Victoria’s inner harbour, the big show to commenorate the 75th. anniversary of The Deuce. This show would feature over 400 1932 Fords of the 761 registered. WOW!
In 2010, the event was, once again at the Inner Harbour and we had another terrific turnout. Because of the popularity of the event, it became a three-day event and the name was changed to Northwest Deuce Days (from Day).
For 2013, there are, once again, Friday activities, a Gala Banquet, and the main attraction on Sunday at the Inner Harbour
I will get some pics from this year’s show. Stay tuned!!
