There were 73 vintage vehicles registered at the Golden Oldies Car Show in Port Alberni’s Gyro Williamson Park on Sunday, July 3. Hundreds of car enthusiasts attended the annual car show that took a two-year break due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Vintage tunes by Broken Record and refreshments from Ala Cart Hot Dogs officially made it a party—that is, until the rain came. Then the beautiful old vehicles left for home.
