Capital Hill Hot Rod and Car Show 2011

A smaller show held in the Capital Hill community of Calgary. There is generally a lot of custom cars and hot rods here. I managed to catch the tail end of it.

The full gallery of photos with a few selected highlights below.

Modern Corvette wearing a vintage looking suit. First one I’ve seen like this. The width and interior give it away. These are put together by a local shop, The Rod Shop, and called Rebirth Vette.

Some nice Canadian vehicles were in attendance including this very orange 1956 Mercury M-100 and 1966 Beaumont SD. The SD stands for Sport Deluxe and is the performance option equivalent to Chevrolet’s SS.

A few other imports even including this very nice Sunbeam and imported Mini Mayfair. The Mini likely came from Japan or the UK with right hand drive.
