Winnipeg’s Car Calendar–April 23, 2008

Winnipegers tend to have really nice cars. Here’s what they do with them:

This weekend: Rondex Autorama

As I mentioned last week, the Manitoba Street Rod Association is holding the Rondex Autorama this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the East End Arena (517 Pandora Ave. E) in Transcona. The show will feature lots of actual, drive-able cars, as well as plenty of vendors to get you those last second pieces before cruising season gets into gear. There’s also a ton of giveaways, including a raffle on a rebuilt Chevy 350, and a draw for a TH350 automatic transmission. And like any good car show, there’s face painting and balloons for the kids (because honestly, your 6-year old daughter really doesn’t care about the shifting linkage in that ’32 coupe over there…) Check out the MSRA website for times and ticket info.

Next Weekend: Super Truck Special @ Red River Speedway

Now that they’ve finally cleared the snow off the track, Red River Speedway is opening the season with the Super Truck Special. Just to make the first race day more exciting, they’ve also added 4-cylinder stock cars to the mix. Both races are on Saturday evening, with gates opening at 6:30. According to Google Maps, the track is located near St. Adolphe, under a big green arrow.

Any Weekend (or even right now!)

Head over to your local Chapters bookstore or Dominion News to pick up the latest copy of Canadian Hot Rods & Classics. There’s some great car show coverage and awesome rides, including a rare Pontiac coupe in the “Bone Stock Parking Lot” feature. Get yours before it sells out!

Manitoba AMC Club at World of Wheels 2008

The Manitoba AMC club put out a killer display at last month’s World of Wheels show–check out the cotton stuffing burnout!

Fins & Taillights--\'57 Chevy and a \'58 Impala

Fins & Taillights–the Gauthier Auto Museum is so jam-packed with 4-wheel goodness, there’s hardly room to move!
