Vintage show returns to Blackie Spit

The 5th annual Crescent Beach Concours d'Elegance is to include a showcase of 90 vehicles.

A show of vintage cars and motorcycles from across Canada and the U.S. is set to return to Blackie Spit in South Surrey on Sept. 5.

Thousands of automotive enthusiasts are expected to attend the 5th annual Crescent Beach Concours d’Elegance, which is to include a showcase of 90 vehicles and a return of new-model-Porsche test drives.

According to organizers, hundreds of applications from collector-vehicle owners were vetted to curate “the finest selection of vintage cars and motorcycles from around the world, including Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, Alfa Romeo and Porsche.”

One of this year’s biggest draws is expected to be a 1959 Watson Indy Roadster known as the Simoniz Special #16 owned by Larry Pfitzenmaier from Scottsdale, Ariz. The roadster was the fifth of 23 Indy Roadsters built by A.J. Watson from 1956 through 1963, and one of only two built for the 1959 racing season.

All vehicles will be judged by a select panel of judges, headed by chief judge John Carlson, who will award the best-in-class in each category.

The Porsche test drive is an opportunity for attendees to drive some of Porsche’s latest models. Organized by Porsche Centre Langley and Porsche Canada, the test drives will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The show takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with an awards presentation at 2:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the event are to benefit Alexandra Neighbourhood House.
