Every year, on the second last week in August, GM Canada plays host to AutoFest. Being one of Ontario’s largest outdoor car shows, we thought there might be a pretty good chance to see the new Camaro. Of course, the car was in Oshawa this week for the announcement that the car will be built here so we pretty much expected it would be there. It only makes sense, especially considering the number of times the car has been pictured rolling in to local cruise nights across the States.
The Camaro pulled a no show. Maybe they were afraid to bring it out on an overcast day in case it gets wet. Call this one a missed opportunity.
Mother nature threatened rain all day and that may have accounted for the fairly sparse crowd, but the parking lots were filled with all sorts of cars. Mostly American stuff, with lots of rods and more Chevelles than you ever need to see. Overall, the quality of the cars on display was quite high, with the odd competition show car here and there for good measure. There were Rat Rods, Dune Buggies, olde cars and new. Even a giant old 4×4 that was close to monster truck size.
Tomorrow, I’ll get around to posting some of the 181 pics I took today.
