An elegant affair at Crescent Beach car show

‘Best turnout ever’ for Crescent Beach Concours d’Elegance in South Surrey.

Organizers of the Crescent Beach Concours d’Elegance are celebrating a record year, following the fifth annual event last weekend.

“We had the best turnout ever,” said Brad Pelling, a South Surrey resident and the driving force behind the show coming to the local waterfront. It was held in Gastown for eight years prior.

Staged in Blackie Spit Park on Sept. 5, the display of vintage automobiles and motorcycles from across the west coast of Canada and the U.S. drew about 6,500 spectators.

A panel of 25 judges evaluated around 90 vehicles in nearly a dozen competition classes – including Shelby, Jaguar Post War, Corvette 1963-1972, Muscle Cars and Motorcycles.

Special awards were also given, including Historical Significance, Most Elegant Pre War Car and Elegance in Motion.
