Oak Bay Blethering Place Collector Car Show
Oak Bay's Blethering Place Collector Car Festival 2010
Oak Bay Avenue was closed to regular traffic today from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm to display about 300 collector cars ranging from the earliest, hot rods, english, muscle, and classic...all sorts of eras. It was about 32 degrees of hot sun today and that didn't stop the crowd from showing up to enjoy the cars, hearing the stories and history of the cars from the owners, listening to the entertainment, participating in the raffles and prizes. This has turned out to be an annual event so if you missed it, come next year. The Blethering Place Tea Room and Restaurant is located at 2250 Oak Bay Avenue. On the corner of Monterey Avenue 250.598.1314 or toll free at 1.888.598.1413 to reach them direct. The Blethering Place is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner 8am-9pm. It is about a 10 minutes drive from Downtown Victoria.
The majority of the cars come from local enthusiasts but some came from up island, mainland BC and the United States . Attached are a few samplings of collector cars I took a photo of today, which I hope you enjoy if you missed today's Oak Bay event.
Many years ago I had the special pleasure of driving in a 1968 Convertible Shelby GT 350 from Palm Dessert to Victoria BC along the Coastline. The owner at the time, offered me the wheel for a short ride on the highway. It was a memorable life experience!
