River City Classics Show 'n Shine

James Tworow is always on the search for British cars in his home province of Alberta. At least, that is what I spur him on to.

This last weekend he was at the River City Classics Show 'n Shine in High River, AB. From what I have seen in a River City Classics Facebook post, the town was pretty much filled with cars. On the street, in plaza and mall parking lots, in the parks there were cars. About 1,100 of them this year.

Thanks to James for the pictures.

1968 "bits & pieces" Mini Cooper... It's a Cooper S bodyshell and has a Cooper 998 engine, and a Canadian flag painted on the roof...

1970's Austin Mini 1000 with a few custom touches, including a rather interesting grille...

MOGEN Motor Club Lotus Exige

Spitfire, and TR-3

Jaguar XJ12C, that I saw leaving the show on a flat deck truck, wasn't able to get that photo though...

More Minis, new and old

Stuff For Sale

This is gathered, primarily, from our Facebook site
Submissions are accepted
But only if they exist on a sale site I can link to.

1957 Morris Isis - Cranbrook, BC

This Isis comes to you via an e-mail to me!

I have my 1957 Morris Isis for sale. I have too many projects. All glass is good. The body is quite restorable with rust in the driverís rear quarter and a dent on driverís front fender. Engine is jammed but not frozen (starter??). Has an Austin Healey 100/6 drive train with automatic transmission (apparently 6 in the world with automatics). Apparently only 30 left registered in the UK and two in Canada (one plus this one). Floor pans seem good as well as the boot. I have a bill of sale from the last ownerís son plus the 1972 B.C. plates so registering should not be a problem. More pictures available. E-mail Cliff at
