Welcome back to our semi regular tour of the Canadian automotive scene. The Canadian International Auto Show is in full swing in Toronto, which is a good thing. Not so good for many is the fact that the only real stars of the show this year are cars of the vintage variety. Outside of the Shelby exhibit, the baby Auto Union above might just be the coolest car at the show. Inside the Shelby exhibit is likely the largest collection of historically significant Shelby cars ever displayed in Canada. To be in this room, soaking up the good vibrations of racing history is worth the price of entry all by itself. As for the rest of the show, your level of enjoyment may vary.
While I’m still feeling the vintage vibe, we should begin our travels with a visit to Classic Car Adventures where Warwick Patterson talks about the differences between shooting video on film as compared to digital. Backing up the story is a must see film shot at the 2006 Rolex Invitational at Lime Rock by Dikayl Rimmasch using vintage cameras. Very cool.
