GRAVENHURST — Car culture is not an auto immune disease.

It’s more like a virus: a bug that fast and furious collectors are driven to mutate dints and dents with help from a little Bondo.

And it’s all on full display today with the annual Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce Virtual Car Show.

Online and at your fingertips are more than 150 hot wheels and classic cars and trucks from a 1928 Model A Ford to the latest in modern transportation.

The Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce office on main street has this great pickup out front to highlight the start of today’s virtual car and truck show.

In a normal year you’d be able to see them driving around town and on display at Gull Lake Rotary Park, but like last year due to the pandemic the show and your online judging are virtual.

The show and judging are on till June 23 — but the site will remain up during the summer for viewing only.

There’s even a glimpse back and forth in to the future.

Here are a half dozen of the beauts to whet your appetite for all things shiny and coool, which you can check out from the comfort of your home or phone.

Their oldest vehicle is an Uxbridge Model A Ford from 1928.
From Mississauga an auto buff registered two vehicles. This one above is a hand-crafted car inspired by a 1925 Bugatti Type 35B; and below the other is a 2000 Mazda Miata LS.

From Port Carling: A homemade replica of a 1957 Lotus 7.
From Utterson, the “Lincoln Man” posted these three beautiful old beasts above and below: a 1966 Lincoln Continental; a 1982 Lincoln Mark VI and a 1983 Lincoln Mark VI.
