AUTOMOTION

2018 PROFILES



What's the opposite of a snow bird ?

Florida Back Florida Side
While we Canadians flock south to escape winter snow,
this Floridian migrates north to escape summer hurricanes.
You may not call these wings,
but this beauty sure can fly.

1953 MG

1984 Excalibur
Though not documented in history,
it looks like one influenced the other.

Used by a working bee keeper
MISS BEE HAVEN.
Thank you for what you do with this truck.

1946 Chevy
Thank you for what you DON’T
do with this truck.
It would be a shame to get it dirty.

Some express themselves in paint - or wrap ...


2007 Corvette Z06

Gotta go.


1992 Mustang



Participants and spectators had new things to do at this year's car show.

They checked out hundreds of gorgeous cars, of course...

but also got to enjoy the breeze and the view
or play Edith Ann

(remember Lily Tomlin’s skits on the TV show
“Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In”
from the ’60’s and ’70’s ?)


They could also experience the “Great Caboosescape”
to see if they could escape the freight.

Some sought out the coolness of Brockville's Railway Tunnel - Canada’s 1st - 1860.

In this case, COOL means not only temperature on a hot day,
but lights and sound to make you think
GET OUT OF THE WAY - A TRAIN IS COMING !!

Others took their curiosity to ELECTRIC AVENUE.



NEW THIS YEAR

Some cars came down from Ottawa to show us what the future is supposed to bring.

2017 Chevy Volt

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

2013 Tesla S

These 1st 2 are able to get home
with no hassles because
Brockville has generic charging stations
and, of course, gas stations.

The P85 can do 0 to 60 MPH
in 4.1 seconds and
a ¼ mile in 12.6 seconds.
Not bad !
That’s right up there
with the old boys.

But SORRY Tesla
- Brockville just isn’t
ready for you yet -
no TESLA charging stations.



If you kept looking -- around the corner -- you found ...

1966 Chevy C-10

This looks like a fun project.

This is how the Big Kids Tinker with Toys !



Grand Champion



To pay tribute to HOT WHEELS 50th Anniversary,

we asked people to come out and show how

BIG KIDS TINKER with TOYS.

Congratulations on this 1955 Belair !
Grand Champion


Coincidentally,

it says it

right on the

windshield...


THE HOT ONE !!!
