Centennial car show was hit

Centennial car show co-ordinator in Alberni gives props and a big shout out to those who came.

To the Editor,

I would like to thank all the people that helped to make the Centennial Home Coming Weekend Car Show the success that it was.

I wanted to have a “locals only” show that would live up to Port Alberni’s label as being “Car Town”, and I think we accomplished that. We had a total of 235 vehicles on display, and all of them were locally or former resident owned.

Unfortunately the hot weather took its toll and the turnout was less than expected. To those guys that brought out more than one vehicle, my sincere thanks; I know the effort you went through to do it.

Special thanks go out to my friends, sponsors and supporters who helped me put on the show and donated prizes.

Thank you to all those who braved the heat to attend. I hope you enjoyed the show and memorabilia.

Satch Willis,

Centennial car show co-ordinator
