Car enthusiasts celebrate Canada with classic show

Up to 200 cars and trucks to gather in Hope

Every year, the Canada Day Classic Car Show is a wonderful success.

Organized by Hope Motorsports, the show brings together every classification of car, from the oldest to the newest.

Scott Medlock with Hope Motorsports says they’ve had 1913 Fords all the way up to newer sports cars and exotics.

“This year, we expect a local gentleman to bring his new Tesla to the show,” he says. “I think that is one of the neat things about our show. It is very casual and it makes for a nice day enjoying all vehicles and talking to those who bring them out.”

And getting to chat with the owners is one of the highlights of any car show.

“They are all passionate about their vehicles and proud to show them off,” Medlock says.

The car show runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Memorial Park in Hope, and they are expecting to welcome anywhere from 150 to 200 cars and trucks.
