WATCH: Deuce Day classic cars revving up in Victoria’s inner harbour.
Christmas will most definitely be coming in July for classic car enthusiasts.
The sold-out Northwest Deuce Days event will feature more than a thousand cars and is expected to attract 100,000 visitors to Victoria’s Inner Harbour.
On Friday, fans were teased with a sneak peak of some of these beautiful machines.
The three day event will run July 22-24 and is open to cars made up until 1951. The stars of the show though are the 1932 Fords.
When introduced, they were unlike anything ever seen on four wheels, and were only manufactured for nine months.
Nearly 600 1932 Fords will be at this show, it will be the largest gathering in the world.
“I don’t think there’s two artists that paint the same picture and that’s the same with cars. There are 558 ’32 Fords here and probably not two of the same. They’re a work of art and everybody has their own individual idea,” said Al Clark, organizer of the show.
Northwest Deuce Days was first held in 1998 and featured about a hundred cars.
This year, organizers had to cut off registration at 1,100.
There are another 50 on the waiting list and with spectators expected to travel from across the continents, the number of participants is expected to approach 100,000.
