Show and Shine a huge success

There wasn't room for one more car, as owners and presenters from around the province converged on Ashcroft for the Show and Shine.

This year’s sixth annual Ashcroft Show and Shine was a huge success, with 81 owners/presenters bringing a record 91 vehicles to the show. Presenters came from as far afield as Quesnel, Williams Lake, 150 Mile, and Hope, but there was also a large contingent of local car owners. Bill Hood of 100 Mile House won the hand-carved leather plaque created by Ashcroft resident Ron Matkea, while Ashcroft’s Peter Wratschun won a gift pack from Lordco.
