Smithers, Festivals & Events
This morning, I checked out the BMW Vintage & Classic Car Club of America's display of antique cars on Main St here in Smithers. They've been touring around Western Canada, and their stop in Smithers coincides with the BV Museum's celebration of the 100th anniversary of the first automobile to drive overland from the US to the Bulkley Valley. I really enjoyed seeing all the BMW cars and motorbikes from every decade - including the oldest one from 1937. I would have been happy to take home one of the zippy little red convertables, but my favourite was definitely the 1940's vintage touring car!
After a short parade, they'll be rolling on to Prince George, so be sure to check them out in Prince George if you missed them in Smithers!
