Braving the rain for Thanksgiving Run


The weather for today’s Thanksgiving Run was better suited for snorkels and flippers, but a bit of rain didn’t keep the diehard classic car owners at bay! While some showed up with their more modern cars due to inoperative or non-rain suitable classics, the run included a number of classic convertibles (tops up!), a set of BMW’s, a Volvo, a MGA, a Porsche, several Mini’s, and even a Pontiac Fiero with collector plates!  With the smaller group, we were able to take the more leisurely Marine Drive route to Britannia Beach, and everyone was able to sit inside at Galileo Coffee to enjoy a hot drink and bite to eat. Here’s some photos from the morning…

    It was fun. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with you and talking cars. Thanks for organizing it and letting me tag along. :)

    I took a few pictures too (not while driving).

    We had the top down in the MGA until my 4 year old son and I got drenched on the Lion’s Gate Bridge. We gave up at that point, and enjoyed the rest of the drive the more for it!

    As always, a real treat to see the different marques messing around together. Cool!!

    We took no pictures, so thanks everyone for contributing theirs!!

    We’ll see you again,
    Duncan and Liam (and the way out), and Duncan and James (on the way back)
