A convoy of LAMBs will converge upon downtown Langley this weekend.
No need to panic, or call the SPCA, because in this case, these are members of the Langley Area Mostly British Motoring Club (LAMB).
LAMB club members will be showing their cars at the Langley Good Times Cruise-In this Saturday.
One of the largest show and shines in Canada, Cruise-In draws as many as 100,000 car enthusiasts into Langley City, where hundreds of classic and souped-up cars, trucks, and motorcycles will be on display.
Between 12 and 15 cars owned by LAMB members are scheduled to be on display including a Morris Minor, MGTD, MGB, Rover, Jaguar XJS, Healey, Austin 1800, and Lotus.
"I believe we have a number of cars that will be in Douglas Park for the Cruise-In," LAMB club member Martin Ross said. "We have had cars in the show for a number of years."
The concourse area in Douglas Park is dedicated for factory original cars.
"The British cars fit right in there," said Cruise-In president Eric Taylor, who is trying to encourage more club members to participate, and make their cars and trucks visible, on the day of the event.
"Any cars that show up as a group, we want to park them together, as long as they show up together. They need to stage together," Taylor said "If we get car club groups together in one place, people will be more inclined to join them. One of the things about having car clubs in, is they tend to attract more people. The more people come, the better it is."
Looking ahead to Saturday, the number of participants and registrants involved in Cruise-In is entirely weatherdependent, Taylor said.
"If there is good weather right after the long weekend then come the Saturday the seventh, there will be a lot of cars coming out," he said. "That's generally how it works out. We will have a tremendous turnout if we have good summer weather. If it is threatening rain, that will reduce the numbers dramatically."
