I briefly managed to pop into the First Alliance Show & Shine in Calgary. It was certainly a busy one especially at noon. I had to park a ten minute walk away. With limited time I stuck to mostly the Canadian market cars and any oddballs I came across. The full gallery is here and a selection below.
Quite a rare Canadian market 1956 Meteor Rideau. The owner claims 1 of 206 made. A rare beauty.
A great selection of Canadian market cars.
Another Canadian car – 1962 Pontiac Laurentian sedan
AMC Gremlin X with a V8
1964 Studebaker Daytona – not sure if this is a Canadian built one second series or not. Usually you can tell if the steering wheel is white or body coloured. Not on a white car of course.
A yellow 1978 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. Very much like my old Z28 except mine was white.
Some ladies posing in a hot rod
1969 AMC AMX with a 390cid V8
Nice to see such a well taken care of first generation MR2 with no tacky modifications. This one was the faster supercharged version.
1957 Chevrolet Bel Air converted to a truck. I remember seeing this one (or one almost exactly the same) around as a kid.
A lovely orange Volkswagen Scirocco leaving the show area as I arrived.
