Yesterday morning started early. I had planned to ride to a friend's home to assist with changing out a light fixture and, along with another friend who joined us, throw around some ideas on how he could suite his basement now that his daughter has moved to Kelowna, BC, to attend university.

I gathered a few tools to throw into the motorcycle saddlebags. After changing out the fixture, and following some discussion on the potential 'suiting' of his basement, I was ready to head back home. I recalled that the city of Langley was hosting a west coast style Show and Shine - one of the biggest I have ever witnessed - and, according to a local expert (a security guy I spoke with), one of the largest crowds this event has ever seen.
|This was the third best looking truck, in my view.|
|Old classic style. My second favourite.|
|These are my favourite Chevy's. As a kid, my father's company had a few of these. Whenever I see one, it brings back great memories of my childhood.|
|Our company had one of these too.|
|This rare Studerbaker has nice lines too. Too bad the company faltered those many years back.|
|One of earliest models I could find.|
|A work in progress.|
|My personal favourite - a 1 Ton Chevy...capable of towing any trailer or 5th wheel.|
|It's a beauty.|
|That bright and shiny candy apple red paint job was stunning.|
|Bolt a 5th wheel hitch pin receiver in this box and imagine the looks you would get pulling that fiver, eh!|
The temperature hovered between 25 and 30 degrees.
|I spent a bit of time near this '64 Chevy. For several years, I too had one like this. It was the very same colour too. This one was in far better shape than mine....but it sure felt good to reminisce about the drives taken when I was a younger lad.|
|OK, this is the last of the many photos I could have dropped into this blog...but I'll end it here.|
|I could not locate a make for this silver Class A.|
|We likely all know someone who owned one of these - at one time or other.|
|This is a converted transit bus.|
|This Class 'A' has seen a lot of miles and it is still in pretty good shape.|
|It too looks like a converted former transit bus.|
I dropped in on a couple of friends who had entered their dolled up Harley Davidson motorcycles in their respective categories...and I'm sure one or all three of them won or placed. OK, enough about the show-n-shine!

|30 minutes later we were here.|

Thanks for dropping by.
