Van Isle Dragways pics by Chris Cooper

We are excited to add a new album to our Vancouver Island Hot Rods Nostalgia section. We are very pleased to be adding new photos from Van Isle Dragways courtesy of Chris Cooper who use to own and race the “Sinister Purpose” at Van Isle Dragways. We would like to give a big “Thank you” to Chris for allowing us access to his personal albums and allowing us to share them. There is some great Vancouver Island drag racing history here!

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 commemorate 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).

2013 was previously the biggest event.

2016 was a complete sell out and was, by all accounts, the best
