Vintage Vehicles In Canada: Cars, Cars, Cars

I’m not a car person. My eyes glaze over when television shows like Top Gear are on and I have no idea about different makes and models. If somebody asked me to describe a car, a typical response would be something to the tune of: “A big silver one.” 

However, I do have an appreciation for old carsThey’re much more attractive and colourful than modern designs. There were a number of times in Canada when I spotted interesting vintage vehicles that I just had to photograph.

Classic cars in Niagara

After visiting Niagara Falls, I decided to explore further and walked for miles out of the downtown area. I eventually stumbled upon an impressive display of vibrant classic cars that were lining the streets.

Cool cars in Toronto

Kensington Market in Toronto is vintage heaven. Along with spending a whole day ducking in and out of the many vintage shops here, I spotted a couple of vintage cars parked up that added even more character to this quirky neighbourhood.

A vintage taxi in Coombs

Located at the Coombs Market on Vancouver Island is a bright blue dilapidated old cab that is brimming with personality, despite its rather rusty appearance.

1970s camper van in Qualicum Beach

Vintage camper vans are often a popular choice of vehicle for travellers. But this one had become part of the landscape at a blueberry farm in Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island, where I stayed for a while. The farm owners had obtained it from a friend and were thinking of transforming it into a surplus accommodation option for workers.

1920s vehicles at Burnaby

A 1920s village is located in the city of Burnaby, not far from Vancouver. A 1920s-style car, that is driven around at regular intervals, and a tram are among the features.

    This is just my dad’s sort of thing – he has a couple of vintage cars from the 1940s and 50s that he’s restored so we were always being dragged along to car events. Must have rubbed off a bit as I love the Goodwood Revival vintage motor racing event (think that’s more the dressing up than the cars though!).

  2. Very cool cars. I laughed with the “a big silver one” thing because that’s me as well.
