Classic beauties

The third annual Classic Car Show was filled with shining beauties in Sparwood.

A 1958 Edsel Citation was one of many classics at the Classic Car Show in Sparwood.

Nothing says classic like white walled tires, scooped panels, finned lights and large chrome front grills. Classic cars were shining their stuff at Sparwood’s third annual classic car show hosted by I love Sparwood and Vantage Point on Whiskey Jack Drive today.

More than 25-waxed beauties lined the street, some with hoods up as men spoke about the engine parts. Ninety-year-old Sena was one of many who came to enjoy the classic beauties with her family.

A 1958 Edsel Citation belonging to Jim and Theresa Ellerton of Bellevue is one of only 476 four-door hardtops that were built in Oakville, Ontario. The majority were made in the United States.
