Hi Duane, based on my interviews for this story and conversations with people who live there, more traditional classics are a lot more popular in the surrounding areas than in the city proper. Victoria, too, is a gold mine for classics of all stripes. There are lots of things hidden throughout the Island, as well, some of them rather off-beat. Thank you for reading!
Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the article. I'm not here to take any geopolitical position -- just to shed light on a car enclave that a lot of people don't realize is a world player. I understand that many of our readers don't care about high-dollar anything, but other readers do, or at least find a window into that world interesting. For my part, I think paying attention to all corners of the market is beneficial, even the high-end stuff. How people are interacting with it now has the potential to tell us about future trends that play out in the mainstream space.
For those posters who can't find any old-school classics on the streets of Vancouver, come down to the All British Field Meet, held each May at Van Dusen Gardens. Lush setting and a wide assortment of British iron, from top end Jags to bread-and-butter family sedans, make this the best show of its kind in North America.
I will say this for the old-school forums... People actually write and therefore think. Contrast that to social media which is essentially political cartoons, likes and shares.
