When I attend a car show I am always on the look out for Canadian markets vehicles as well as unusual or unique cars. Coaldale, while a smaller place, seems to have a lot of car folk so I always look forward to this show. In attendance was this survivor condition 1948 Monarch which certainly qualifies as something Canadian and also rather special.
Sold only in the Canadian market Monarchs used Mercury bodies with special trim, lights and grills.
The interior is still largely original with only some aftermarket gauges as obvious additions.
This generation of AMX is probably the least well known. This particular example is a 1980 and now packs a General Motors LS series V8.
The widened stock rims are a nice touch.
While more normal car show fare this 1958 Ford Skyliner is sure nice.
Vans such as this 1967 GMC Handivan have low survival numbers so nice to see someone taking interest in a classic van.
The John Deere paint scheme is sure eye catching on this 1957 International S110 pickup truck.
This 1937 Cadillac Fleetwood certainly ranks as a very special car.
This 1942 Dodge pickup truck pulls off the patina hot rod look very well.
The square rigged Cadillac Eldorado could only be a product of the 1970s.
Perhaps not a typical car show vehicle but it was nice to see this 70s Ford Courier pickup as they are very rare on the streets.
Canadian market 1965 Mercury pickup truck.
A lovely 1947 DeSoto Club Coupe.
The inside might be even more lovely.
Plymouth Cranbrook four door sedan.
Only a few imports including this right hand drive Nissan Stagera station wagon.
