Missed Car Shows

During Car Show season Dan is pretty much unstoppable. We sometimes call him the Energizer Bunny.

However, he is not Super Man and can not attend each and every show. We would like to represent shows even if Dan can't make it. So if anyone attends or is involved with a Show N Shine on Vancouver Island that Dan can not attend himself, and you have an album of pictures to share, we would be happy to feature these on our site as well. Remember, we would prefer to limit this to shows that Dan has NOT attended and only shows on Vancouver Island. Maybe this will allow us to represent even more of the Hot Rod culture on the island.  


Color Slides of Photos at San Cobble Raceway

We would like to say a big “Thank you” to friend Gordie Strongman for contributing these 11 color slides of photos he took mostly at San Cobble Raceway on the old Bamberton Cement Rd in Cobble Hill. This strip was run by the Quartermilers Car Club. A few are from Van Isle Dragways as well. Thank you Gordie for the generous contribution to our “Nostalgia” section on our website and also for allowing me to keep the slides!

Van Isle Dragways Color Kodaks

So I am at the Vette show today and I ran into friend Bruce Bell. He was hoping he would see me as he told me he had something for me from Van Isle Dragways. Of course my heart skipped a beat and he pulls out this plastic holder that had two color kodaks taken of him in his 1971 Charger RT leaving the line at Van Isle as well as two of his time slips and then tells me I can have these. Thought it was cool as well as friend John Dutton's Photography business address was on the back of the slips. John of course was the Van Isle Dragways strip photographer. Photos were taken in July 1971 by a friend of Bruce's. I would like to again express my sincere thanks to Bruce for thinking of me and also say a huge Thank you in general to all who have entrusted me with your material! It is beyond gratefully appreciated
