5th Annual East Van Show and Shine at the Whip Restaurant (Vancouver, BC. May 27, 2012)

The Fifth Annual East Van Show and Shine

My friend Eli and I attended the Fifth Annual East Van Show and Shine held at the Whip Restaurant.  It is a fundraiser that features live bands, a barbecue, local vendors, and vintage and classic cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Proceeds support the Canadian Cancer Society.  We have attended the event for the last few years and it's always fun.  There were a few new cars this year, including a late 60's Charger and a late 60's Camaro which are both near the top of my favorites list.

On our way out of the house, Eli noticed a rainbow around the sun.  More info about this in my previous post, but it was very cool and not a common sight.

The most popular attraction as not the cars, girls, band, or food.  It was a pug in a side car :)

This truck is described as a 'greaser pickup' by the owner.  Looks fantastic to me.  Taken at the East Van Show and Shine outside the Whip Restaurant in Vancouver.

Taken at the 5th Annual East Van Show and Shine outside the Whip Restaurant in Vancouver.  There were a lot of great cars there, but this late 60's Dodge Charger was my favorite.  This is actually an HDR shot converted to black and white with some transparency.

Dodge Viper Valley of Fire

My friend Eli and I rented this beast while on a trip to Las Vegas. It's a bright yellow Dodge Viper which certainly draws a lot of attention. We drove it to the Valley Of Fire (shown here), to the Hoover Dam, and to a few other places which would rather not see us again.
