    Had a great trip to Sun Peaks. The weather was incredible. On Saturday we drove the Kamloops Wine Trail - starting at Privato Winery. Had a small sampling there. Next was Harper's Trail Winery and finally a late lunch at Monte Creek Winery.

    Sunday the smoke rolled in to cloud the skies, but that didn't affect the Sun Peaks market and after venturing through that, we all headed off.

    Not a huge turn-out but quality not quantity - right;) Given COVID and the first week of school in this year of upheavals, perfectly understandable.

    Spotted what I believe is a Diablo SV. In Morgan Crossing, South Surrey. Have seen this car before @ White Rock Beach. Very loud.

    Hey Gary, if you got any pictures could you please post some?

    I tried to drop by just after 6 but the lineup to get into the lot was quite long and hardly moving. I didn’t realize this was a full on show.

    Hi Niklas:

    Sorry we missed you. I do have some pictures. I wasn't part of the group of organizers and I know they were overwhelmed at the turnout as well.
    There were more than 100 cars at the meeting site in Langley.

    That number turnout doesn’t surprise me in the least. I’ve never seen so many import and German cars all congregated in Cultus before.

    I was on a bit of a time crunch heading home and thought maybe I could just swing into the lot for a quick peek. Nope!

    Saw a C8 Vette yesterday. Second one I've seen in the wild, first one I got a good look at from all angles. It was red. Good looking car, even though I don't like modern cars over classics.

    Yellow Huracan in the rain last night on Fraser Highway. Was surprised to see it considering the rain.

    Yes, because everyone knows that Italian exotics dissolve in the rain. Very risky trip....:D

    964 Turbo in South Surrey. Must live very close to me as I've seen the car a few times. Amazing. Looks like it is on multipiece Cup style wheels. Outside in a light drizzle as well.
