Hot rods at the show and shine

The car show is coming back and a face from the past is returning two decades after his first visit. Cliff Barkley is one of the original members of the Columbia Valley Classic Car Club which will be once again hosting the Show and Shine Car Show in Radium Hot Springs in September.

A history to remember

In 1959 a car came to the Columbia Valley and started a journey that continues to this day. Audrey Osterloh has lived her entire life in Invermere where she was born and raised. Her father, and later her brother, were the owners of a car dealership in the area which saw the family go through many different cars over the years. In 1959 the the family obtained a new Ford Fairlane 500 which they drove until 1961 when Ben Schnider purchased the vehicle from the family.

A GTO for the family

The blue 1965 GTO owned by Tia Barkley has never had any major work done on it over the years because to her it is still her brother Brian’s car. The car has been in the Barkley family since 1987 when Tia’s brother bought it at the age of 14 and took every penny he could find to restore it.

A story of Meteor finding a new home

Every classic car seems to have a classic story behind how it came to be in its current owner’s possession.
For Ann and Ray Picton of Windermere the way they found their Canadian-made ‘64 Mercury Meteor is not without a story of its own.

Car club president is ready for Show and Shine

The Columbia Valley Classic Show and Shine Car Show is on the 18 and 19 of September and looks to be one of the biggest shows the club has ever held. Last year almost 1,000 cars were registered in the event with many other spectacular cars coming to town with their owners for a weekend of fun in the sun.
