GRAVENHURST — “Cool car! Haven’t seen one of those for years.”
At least two years to be exact.
That sums up Day 1 of the Muskoka’s Father’s Day weekend car shows in Gravenhurst and Bracebridge.
After COVID’s Zoom, Zoom shows chambers of commerce show off their shine one more time.
In the Gateway community today Gull Lake Rotary Park was a traffic jam with hundreds of classic cars and trucks of every make and model worth well over a million dollars and that most hadn’t seen in two years — if not decades.
All that gleaming chrome glistening under the sun in centre field was a sight for sore eyes.
All tucked under pine boughs and rounding every base on the ball field.
This show was a real home run that began with cool cars in the morning and by noon became hot rods field of dreams.
With what it costs to buy a litre of gas today the original owners of many of these beauts could cruise all day.
From the shores of Gull Lake today all roads lead to Manitoba Street Sunday for the second half of this weekend’s wheels of fortune fest.
