Had a blast tonight at Laird Wheaton GM. Friend Norm Hayward called me to ask if I could get a couple of cars to come to the dealership so they can be featured in a video segment Harbour Living is doing on 5 Show N Shines for August. So I called up Kelly and Brett to bring the Camaro and Nova in for the shoot. Did a bunch of different segments and we did a cool little race video with Bretts 1967 Camaro against a 2017 Camaro Norm was driving. Brook was the host and was also the flag girl. A few pics from tonight. Took a ton of pics and videos. We will be posting the feature video on vihr.ca when its done.
Well, those last two albums posted were a real hit. So let's share this album too. It was posted a while ago when the site was new.
Logging Rd Drags Courtenay Royston late 1970's.....Photos taken by Mark Sumner.
We would like to give special thanks to Alan Enns for allowing us to access to his personal albums of photos he took at Van Isle Dragways back in the day and for allowing us to share these photos. Some great nostalgia from local Van Isle history.
Thank You Alan.....
67 Shelby GT500 #832
It was raced at van isle back in the day.
Does anyone know of any information on this car? Trying to get any information or even get a hold of past owners.
It was on Vancouver island and Hornby island for most of its life.
With thanks, Dan
The interview I did over the phone a couple weeks ago has now been published in the What's On Digest, you can get them free at grocery stores, etc. Great publicity for the club! The woman used photos taken by Dan Dertien in her article, and talked a lot about the upcoming car show. Good stuff!
