VanDusen GM Classic Car Show in Durham Region
All’s Well That Ends Well. – William Shakespeare
The day started off a little dreary, but the sun came up soon enough and we had a blast at our first ever Charity Car Show and Family Fun Event. VanDusen Chevrolet Buick GMC would like to thank everyone who came out to show their cars and offer their support for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ajax-Pickering. Between the funds raised throughout the day and a significant donation by the dealership $5000 will be donated to charity.
We had around 100 vehicles on display! There were pick-ups, sedans, sports cars, racers, muscle cars, and classics, even vintage and military vehicles. There were a couple famous cars on the lot as well. Even Elvis came out of ‘retirement’ to join the fun!
Not only did the kids get to see Barricade from The Transformers movies but Bumblebee made an appearance for part of the day. Some of the big kids recognized General Lee from The Dukes of Hazard! The children had a blast with the jumping castle, face-painting, crafts and balloon animals.
Attendance really picked up under the afternoon sun and we had terrific feedback. The entertainment was great and the food was fantastic! Not only did Hot Rod Swag supply some amazing trophies but they also did some phenomenal pinstriping.
Hundreds of local residents came to be part of the day and we enjoyed meeting them. Quite a few members of the VanDusen team brought their families along and a few even brought their own vehicles to display!
Thanks Again Ajax-Pickering. Until next time!
