White Elephant Auction a Rousing — No, a RACING Success

Outside 1  Outside 2
Over 45 classic Mini enthusiasts of all ages gathered at Scale Racing in Tacoma for our 2016 White Elephant Auction.  Though smaller in attendance this year, we were still big on donations auctioning off 67 items and raising over $2,500 at the annual SAMOA fund raiser. 
There was plenty of exciting slot car competition for the whole family, an awesome build-your-own-taco buffet, regalia, amazing coffee, and an awesome good time was had by all.

Thanks to all who volunteered, attended, participated, and donated.

2015 Vancouver ABFM

Vancouver ABFMMore than a static car show, the 2015 Vancouver ABFM (All British Field Meet) is held Victoria Day weekend and starts with a kick-off Pub Night reception (Friday, May 15).  On Saturday (May 16) the assembly of cars are displayed at the VanDusen Botanical Garden for “The Greatest Show on British Wheels.”  On Sunday (May 17) after the VanDusen Car show, approximately 120 classic cars and 15-plus motocycles assemble at Park Royal South, North Vancouver, for the start of the traditional All Brit Run to Whistler’s Olympic Village followed by a display in the town center from 11:00 am - 3:30 pm.

As is tradition, one motorcycle and two car manufacturers receive special Featured Marque attention each year. Sixty years of MGA will be celebrated in 2015 with a large display of this beautifully designed sports car.  Sharing the Featured Marque podium will be the TVR ABFM BADGE 2015 copysports car.  In two-wheel class Royal Enfield motorcycles will take center stage.

Education, young people and the awareness of classic cars is an integral component of each year’s ABFM. The 2015 event will see a greater commitment to these principles with an open invitation to high schools and college automotive faculties to join the BCIT automotive students in Youth Judging activities, and a display of project cars in the Youth & Cars featured area of the show.

“We want to encourage the next generation of enthusiasts to restore, rebuild or modify and drive today’s generation of classic cars to ensure we have a future for the classic car hobby,” said Patrick Stewart ABFM co-producer. “Everyone in the classic car hobby these days is worried about the aging demographic of the hobby, which is estimated at 65 years for the average owner. It’s up to those concerned to do what they can to encourage the youth of today to get involved so there will be a legacy to celebrate 10 years from now.”

If you would like to attend the event as a spectator, simply pay at the gate on Saturday May 16 or reserve your advance ticket(s) online.
