Northwest Deuce Coupe 2010 in Victoria


On Belleville St. down by the Inner Harbour in Victory on Friday night, July 16th, it was like a scene out of American Graffiti, only more so. It went from unreal to surreal in about 15 minutes. I don’t think of myself as a big car fan, but the sheer number of restored antique cars milling about James Bay in Victoria this weekend simply had to be documented. The owners’ joie de vivre, their pride of ownership, their general exuberance were all infectious. So here’s a gallery of just a fraction of the hundreds of cars in town for this annual event. Lucky Victoria to be host this year. Now I have a better idea of what the Beach Boys were singing about with “Little Deuce Coupe” and what a hot rod actually is.
