Toronto, ON—The “Canadian International AutoShow 2017,” featured a room full of some of the finest “classic,” cars over the years as a salute to Canada as Canada ramps up to its 150th anniversary this year. Some of the cars that were featured were a 1867 Seth Taylor steam buggy, 1910 Mckay, 1914 Russell, 1927 Mclaughlin-Buick, 1956 Monarch Richelieu, 1903 Columbus Electric, 1935 Packard 1207 Dietrich-bodied coupe roadster, 1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Sedanca De Ville, 1949 Cadillac Concept, and a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Superleggera.

This exhibit was hosted by, “Cobble Beach Councours D’Elegance.”

Another feature of this exhibit was a beautiful black grand piano in the center of the room playing (by itself), some nice light piano music that set the mood as we all took in these fabulous sites of, “Art & the Automobile.”

Toronto, ON — The Canadian International AutoShow was held once again at the Metro Convention Centre (North and South buildings), and ran from February 17 – February 26, 2017. As always, this was a truly spectacular autoshow and featured over 1,000 new cars and light trucks as well as some amazing, “concept,” vehicles. All the numerous auto manufacturers in the industry were represented very well.

Some of the special features of the show were the “classics,” with “Art & The Automobile,” presented by “Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegence, “ the “Formula One’s,” iconic cars, and “Auto Exotica,” which featured numerous red Ferraris, dated back to as early as 1972, as well as Mclaren, Bugatti, Lotus, Lamborgini, Aston Martin, a 1959 Sport Speciale Spyder Tribute Car, and many more.

I’m already looking forward to attending the, “Canadian International AutoShow,” in Toronto next year-it’s always a great time!
