Antique Truck Show 2010

BCFDC volunteer Les Stewart driving the 1918 Maxwell logging truck in the parade
The Antique Truck Show was a hit last weekend!  There were nearly 900 visitors and over 30 trucks on display.  The Cowichan Valley Fire & Safety Fair was also successful with antique and modern fire trucks on-site for visitors to check out.  Many visitors took advantage of the opportunity to chat with the firefighters and learn about fire safety.  The antique vehicle parades were the highlights of both days.

About 30% of the event's visitors traveled from Victoria to take in the truck show and we hope to see them back here for future special events.  Thank you to all the volunteers and exhibitors who worked behind the scenes to make the event enjoyable for the community!  Please take a look at the event photos below, taken by BCFDC summer student, Marcie, Callewaert.

  1. just sold our beloved 1934 Studebaker crummy. Hated to see it go,but we have never found time to fix it up, though it was still possible to drive it out of here. My Dad and both grandfathers were loggers so I fell in love with the bus. Hope to see it restored now. Sometimes it takes more than one owner/step to get there. mary in Oregon
