Victoria Tour - May 4 - 6
20 members from the Mainland and Sunshine Coast were joined by two from the Island for a tour of Victoria and surrounding areas arranged by Werner Faust and Dan Young. The weather was perfect, making for a very enjoyable weekend.


11 Model A's and a couple of moderns met after arriving at Swartz Bay


Werner and Dan led the way along the western back roads of the Saanich peninsula to Metchosin.



The first stop was for lunch at Olympic View golf course



Some people ordered the BIG HAM sandwich special...


We then broke up into 3 separate groups to visit displays of interest.
One group went to Werner Faust's home to see his display of clocks. He is a master at repairing old clocks and watches.


A second group visited the home of Tom Fisher and his collection of Model A's.


One of Tom's cars is a 1930 Town Sedan with original interior.


Another stop was at the home and workshop of Ken Shower. He has restored a number of very high end cars, including this Packard, and was currently working on a Corvette roadster.




The Saturday tour featured a drive around the waterfront through Cordova Bay and Oak Bay.


An unplanned stop to repair an electrical problem with one of the cars.


We stopped for a photo op at Cattle Point in the Uplands area





The group pose for a picture against a beautiful background




Some of the group returned home early, while others decided to spend some leisure time Sunday in Sidney instead of the planned trip to Duncan.
Thanks to Werner and Dan for hosting this tour.
