History Road at Reynolds Alberta Museum – 2010 Edition

Once a year at Reynolds-Alberta Museum they hold the History Road event. They like to try and get at least one vehicle for each year from 1900 to current. Canadian variants are featured strongly. This results in a fantastic display of cars from the last hundred years or so from the museum’s collection as well visitors can enter their own vehicles. Best of all you get to see them driving around. Where else can you see a 1912 Chase driving?

Held on June 12 & 13 in Wetaskiwin, Alberta

The only car representing eastern Europe was this charming Skoda Rapid 130. Rear engined and with the rare for Canada 5spd it was great to see.

    I see you liked my 36 GMC Tow Truck and my buddies 28 Chevrolet Roadster!

    They make a great pair and I take both of them to car shows all the time like this and they seem to go over quite well!

    As of right now I am actually driving the 36 GMC as my daily driver, and it’s has been working great!

    Take care.

    Ryan.

    I’m glad to see the cars out. We built the Thomas Flyer and the German Protos for the documentary The Greatest Auto Race on Earth. When it hit the airwaves we donated the cars to the Reynolds. It’s good to see them on the road although I do miss having them in the front yard for the wrap party. Cheers. Michael.

      Great job on the build and wonderful of you to donate it so we could all enjoy it. I loved the History Road event to see all these cars moving around.
