Car buffs took a shine to fine fins recently, choosing Brian and Mindy Chudyk’s 1957 Chevy Belair as this year’s Fraser Valley Classic Car Show People’s Choice Award winner.
The Chudyks, from Chilliwack, joined hundreds of others under beautiful skies at their hometown Atchelitz Threshermen’s Association Pioneer Village.
“Both the turnout and cars were phenomenal,” says show manager Harv McCullough.
“We had people from White Rock to Hope, all thanks to financial support from Tim Hortons and sponsorship from 89.5 The Drive. Everyone stepped up and the community did their part by coming out. This show started great and just keeps getting better.”
The oldest award-winning car was Gord Esau’s 1931 Buick Phaeton, which finished second in the A Class to Ed McEwen’s 1949 Plymouth Woody Station Wagon.
Winners in other classes included a ’63 Corvette, ’65 Mustang, ’55 Jaguar XK140, and ’76 Austin Mini. For a complete list of this year’s winners, visit https://fvccs.ca/page-18263
Having evolved from the Minter Gardens Classic Car Show this year’s show also had Trevor McDonald returning to host his popular Nothin’ But ‘70s radio show before playing live music in the afternoon.
The FVCCS separates itself from most car shows by only allowing stock restored vehicles 1979 and older to enter — no hot rods, custom cars, or kit cars.
