Welcome Back, Classic Car Show!


Pictured are Bernie and Judy Card of Colborne with the 1909 Ford Model Brass T, one of the shop-stoppers at last month’s Classic Car Show. A record 150 cars were registered for this event, all of them more than 25 years old, but most much older. There was a party atmosphere along King Street as visitors enjoyed the sunshine, food and comradery and the bling of highly-polished chrome and brass on display.

On  Saturday the 16th July the Millbrook Lions Club hosted their first annual car show since the beginning of Covid in 2019.  The weather was perfect and we were able to register 150 classic cars.

This was a record for our show.  Cars were parked all up and down main Street, down Nexicom Lane and both sides of the arena.  Because of the road closure and lane reduction this would not have gone on without the help of the Community Police.

Parked in front of the Legion our D.J. kept things lively throughout the day.  Registration numbers were called and we were able to give out over 50 prizes.  We would like to thank the B.I.A. our many sponsor and the Downtown merchants.  You could only guess at the hundreds of spectators walking the streets and admiring all the beautiful cars.  It is impossible to guess the untold hundreds of hours many of these hobbyist have put into their registration.

The cars arrived from many miles away plus a large contingent of local classics.  Registration was restricted to vehicles 25 yrs and older, and the oldest was a 1916 model T Ford.  The top 5 winners were picked by the participants and trophies were handed out at 1PM.  It was a very successful day, and all of the talk was positive with all wanting to come back next year.  Many said it was the best show they had attended.  The positive feedback will make us want to get started on 2023.  It is a big job, but with a great committee we accomplished what we had wanted.
