ImageThe weather was perfect for this year’s Northwest Deuce Days as more than 900 Hot Rods from across Canada and the United States converged on Victoria’s Inner Harbour as crowds came to check them out.

Here’s shots I took while attending the event knowing it would be at least another three years before Big Bolt is ready to join this mass of awesome rods.

Each car was unique in its design, style and owner’s individual touches. There were so many to see that I would have needed days checking them out to appreciate them as much as the owners.

I took the opportunity to talk to the organizer Al Clark letting him know I’d like to talk more in the future and check out his shop.Image I conversed with Gary Meadors from “The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association” (https://www.good-guys.com/) interrupting him while he’s cleaning off his 1948 Chrysler because of a gift left behind by a seagull. I learned he started Goodguys while working as a photojournalist creating stories of cars then later setting up car shows!Image I also met with a couple of other notables such as Vic and Christi Edelbrock busy signing hats, T-shirts, posters and getting the word out about http://www.Rev’vedUp4Kids.com, the Edelbrock’s website about “creating awareness in young individuals of the multiple opportunities in the automotive industry”.Image

 

In all, it was rewarding!
