Greater Vancouver Cars & Coffee We are very fortunate to live on Canada’s West coast. Our driving season is usually a bit longer than the Eastern parts of Canada and the Northeastern US. BC is a great place to own and drive a Classic car. The casual, morning get-togethers of the Greater Vancouver Cars & Coffee group and similar entities, has grown tremendously in the past few years. Gatherings are often in excess of 100 cars, and they are very diverse. Events are staged in varied locations around the Lower Mainland, bringing out different cars each time. The November 12th gathering at the Coquitlam Home depot parking lot, was one of those occasions. The unusually warm weather and dry roads made for a great turnout. Hotrods, European Classics, American ‘survivors’, Japanese sports cars, there was something for all tastes. It was certainly warm enough for a good Mercedes showing. We managed to park three R107’s together, Sean Clark’s #199 Black 560SL (does he even have a roof???), Bruce Woloshyn’s perfect 380SL, and Leigh Gayman and Dan Cachola displaying the height of fashion and good taste, with a Signal Red 560SL and very spectacular Mercedes-Benz footwear, complemented by appropriately ‘assertive’ sock-wear. We were pleased to see Victoria Chan-Ross of Norwescan Motors and her innovative A-Class Mercedes SUV, from Germany. Victoria even played her now-famous bagpipes for us. One of the younger participants brought out one of the most beautiful Euro-spec W116 350SE sedans from the era oft-regarded as Mercedes best. Not to be outdone by the other exotic fast Euro offering that day, Wei Jay was there with his 190E 2.5-16V Cosworth. BC Stars VP Tony Millikin ‘celebrated diversity’ by arriving in a sports car of another German marque, but was on hand to support us and take photos. It was good to spend time at a car event again with Bruce Woloshyn, and to get to know his new ‘co-driver’ Fay Rorke. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road again, in 2019.
