PHOTOS: Vintage Vernon car show draws crowds, memories

Old-style vehicles on display at Vernon mall Sunday, June 19, with return of Father’s Day show

A little rain Sunday morning did little to dampen the enthusiasm of those taking part in the return of the Vintage Car Club of Canada North Okanagan chapter’s Father’s Day Car Show.

After missing the past couple of years due to COVID, the vintage automobiles rolled into the north end parking lot at the Village Green Centre for the three-hour show, which drew hundreds.

On display was everything from Mustangs and Thunderbirds to Edsels and DeSotos.

Those attending could vote for their favourite car and truck.

The club uses the show as a fundraiser, taking monies collected and returning it to the community by purchasing and donating much-needed tools and equipment to high school automotive departments in the Vernon and North Okanagan-Shuswap school districts.
