Hot rods head to shopping centre in Langley

Hundreds of hot rod collectors are again converging on the Willowbrook Shopping Centre parking lot later this month.

On Sunday, July 19, at least 200 vehicles and their drivers are expected to participate in the British Columbia Hot Rod Association’s annual Hot Rod Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It’s a free public event open to people of all ages, explained club vice-president Joe Morris.

People can talk to the owners and just enjoy the “fine workmanship” that goes into restoring and maintaining these fine pieces of art, he explained.

“There will be a lot of things to do and see,” Morris said. “Come check out the vehicles, plus enjoy an award presentation, musical entertainment, 50/50 raffle, door prize draws, and food and automotive-related vendor sales taking place all day.”

Last year, the club raised more than $10,000 and donated it to the Valley Therapeutic Riding Association.

“We also raise money for many more causes to help our communities,” he said.

The B.C. government declared July as collector car appreciation month. It’s a way of recognizing vintage, classic, hot rod car, motorcycle, and truck clubs for their contribution to the local community.
