Manitoba Camaro Club Show & Shine part 2

Last weekend’s Manitoba Camaro Club show had such a great turnout (both quality & quantity), I just had to put up more pictures of the event.

1981 Camaro Z-28

Bob Davies came down from Oak Bank with his orange-red ’81 Z/28.  Camaros look good on their own, but it was really the thick paint that made this car a stunner.

1968 Pontiac Bonneville

Ernie Wilson came in style with his ’68 Pontiac Bonneville convertible.  The paint on this car sparkled and shone so much, it was actually a challenge to take this picture.

68 Charger

Harold Hiebert’s ’68 Dodge Charger was another red/orange stunner.  It’s hard to tell from pictures just how big this car is, but trust me–it’s huge.  I had to back up almost two parking spots and use a wide angle lens to get this, and it still barely fit inside the frame.

Tim Richard’s dragster was spending its weekend off at the show, soaking up all the attention.  According to the Drag Racer’s Association of Manitoba website, Tim (and his ’89 Davis dragster) are unique in that he often races in both the Super-Pro and Pro-ET classes at Gimli.

Pro Street Pickup

Finally, let’s have one last look at Mitch Dupont’s ’86 GMC Wrangler.  If you were here Wednesday, you probably saw how low and short Mitch has made his little yellow beast (well, now it’s little).  Under the hood, what appeared to be a big-block was force fed through a huge carb and a roots blower.  Everything that wasn’t chrome was covered up by smooth yellow sheet metal.

Pro Street Pickup

This truck ain’t no automotive mullet, though–it’s business in the front and rear.  Diamond plate aluminum covered the huge rear tires and axle, where a pickup bed once made this truck a useful workhorse.  Can it still carry a load of hay while towing a farm implement?  Who cares?

That’s it for this week, but don’t forget to come back Monday for more great pictures from the weekend.  And if you just can’t wait, head down to your local Chapters and pick up this month’s issue of Canadian Hot Rod & Classic magazine.  It’s now the only hot rodding magazine devoted to Canadian cars and Canadian car culture–and it’s a damn good read, too!
