More than a dozen different car clubs taking part in this year’s Motorama show

Car clubs and feature vehicles will once again be at the heart of the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by eBay Motors. There will be at least 13 car clubs represented at this year’s show, including the Oldies Car Club, the London Auto Modifiers and the Corvettes of Durham. The variety of vehicles and club history are things that stand out to Motorama Show Car Coordinator Gary Challice.

“The Oldies, they haven’t been going for a long time, but they’re young guys and they’re enthusiastic,” said Challice. “You get people like the Ontario Camaro Club and the Corvettes of Durham, they’re well-established clubs that have been around for quite a while, and same with the Brampton Street Rods, they’ve been around since the late 1960s.”

The Oldies Car Club is the Featured Club and will have six vehicles on display, representing the lowrider scene that’s popular in southern California; the London Auto Modifiers is one of the oldest clubs in Ontario and will showcase four vehicles, reminiscent of the ‘old days;’ and last year’s Featured Club, the Corvettes of Durham, is a long-time show supporter that has a range of vehicles, including newer models.

 In addition to the 13 car clubs found in Hall 2, there will be clubs in both Spring Fever and Zehr Insurance Mayhem… in the Backroom. There will also be 28 feature cars on display in Hall 1, just inside the show entrance, including everything from a 1929 Ford pickup to Mustangs and Pro Mod dragsters.

“The quality of cars that are in Canada and the interest; we have cars coming from Moncton (New Brunswick), we have cars coming from British Columbia, all of these cars are going into the front hall,” said Challice. “They’re all award winners, basically the best you can be, there’s not a lot of real feature cars… the show can stand on its own now.”

Motorama takes place March 8, 9 & 10 at The International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson Airport. Challice says that he’s most looking forward to seeing the reactions of showgoers as they explore the more than 350 vehicles on display, many of them representing the various clubs.

“I want people to feel that they’re getting their money’s worth,” said Challice. “We’re trying to do the best we possibly can and last year, when people were leaving, they all had smiles on their faces. You want the public to feel that they’re getting their value and seeing something neat that they’ve never seen before.”
