Throughout British Columbia many communities host annual car shows. Restored (and some not) cars and trucks enter the show, line up on city streets that are closed for the show and let people drool over their project. Many of these vehicles have $20,000 and much higher invested in them to bring them back to show room condition.
Most of these shows the owners enter a contest and judges walk around viewing the vehicles. Awards for teh best car, most improved, etc are handed out towards the end of each show. Some of these have been on television and some owners have them registered for movies as well.
If you love old cars and trucks, these annual shws in a community near you are very worthwhile visiting. They attract people and bring commerce to town. Enjoy them.
