PoCo 100: Car Show Mania



I have to admit, I know little about cars but I know what I love, and that’s a day at the Port Coquitlam car show! Walking on the road is a special thrill. How often do you get a chance to stand on the centre line? Add to that all of the colourful cars, the chrome & the curves. What’s not to love?

There were some rather unique vintage vehicles that drew crowds, while other’s seem to enjoy building a story with their display. No matter the style, what was clear was that these were passionate people. You could see it in all of the little details. Each with their own unique take on how to pimp their ride. Watremark_DSC_7071

The kids had a  great time at the car show while wandering the downtown Port Coquitlam streets playing I wish. Penny was enamored with this pink Chevy.
